How do I communicate with an interpreter involved?
You speak directly to the deaf consumer and a normal pace. The interpreter will mimic your tone and repeat all things said in the presence of the deaf.
Suppose a deaf client is requiring a specific interpreter.
The deaf may communicate their needs of a sign interpreter but does not posses the right to pick and choose an interpreter. They can request a specific interpreter and the agency will try to work it out according to schedules as good practice efforts.
Suppose miscommunication happens with the sign interpreter?
Then when you are challenged of if your offered effective communication according to ADA of 1990, you can say that you relied on the interpreter agency to provide you a certified interpreter who’s skills had been measured by state and national entities. 
How do I know if I need a certified interpreter vs. a non-certified interpreter?
If you are conducting business that involves a contract, instructions, commitment, legally binding or medical you need to ensure you have a professional certified interpreter.
