ASL interpreter
While in the classroom there is an American Sign Language interpreter. The ASL interpreter refuses to help pass out paper as it is not his job. This includes passing it out to his deaf student. What would be a good way to communicate why I would like some help?

Interpreters are not teaching assistants, which are different jobs. An ASL interpreter should focus on interpreting sign language and it usually demands their full attention. If you need extra help in the classroom, ask for a teaching assistant or maybe assign a student to be the teacher's helper every day to do little tasks such as handing out papers or sharpening pencils.

Communicating honestly is the best place to start. Inform him of the specific needs you have in the classroom and ask him if he wouldn't mind helping.

The ASL interpreter is right in this situation, particularly because it is his or her job to interpret for the child. Hypothetically, the ASL interpreter could be focused on passing out papers to the other classmates and miss out on being able to interpret for the student. This may make the student feel ignored or as if they don't have as much of a right to communicate as the other students in the class.

Ask her kindly that if she's in the classroom could she help pass out papers to get the lessons done quicker.
