None of the above-direct the questions to the family, not the interpreterdo not interrupt the interpreter and the family as they talkrefrain from making comments about the family to the interpreter, as the family may understand some englishuse laymans terminology if possible, knowing that some words may not have an equivalent word in the child/familys languageas one question at a timeallow time for the interpreter and the family to be introduced and become acquainted before starting the interviewallow the interpreter to know the reason for, and type of questions, that will be asked; expect response (brief or detailed); and with whom to converseinquire about the childs father rather than the mothers husband when asking questions about pregnancy, marriage, and/or sexdo not try to interpret answers(p. 14)
