Cochlear implants have brought about radical changes in the linguistic behaviour of deaf children and these changes are already affecting the structures of education for hearing impaired children and young people. Changes in communication will also be seen in terms of interpreting services provided for implant users. The new kind of linguistic identity of deaf children and young people as well their new approaches to communication will have an inevitable effect on the work of sign language interpreters and the contents of sign language interpreter training.
