Official policies and announcements

Skilled interpreters can help hearing-impaired and deaf members participate in meetings, priesthood ordinances, temple work, testimony bearing, personal interviews and activities. . . .

If interpreters are not available, local leaders may organize ward or stake classes to teach the sign language used in their area. Leaders may call members who are qualified to teach sign language classes. Those members who have a hearing disability and use sign language as their native language should be considered first to teach the class. . . .Only worthy members should interpret for those receiving, performing or otherwise participating in ordinances, interviews, and sacrament meetings. . . .
