As the pool of Deaf professionals is rapidly growing and rising, the demand for qualified interpreters to match has never been greater. This workshop will provide tools and strategies on how to effectively partner with Deaf professionals when the stakes are high. Participants will learn how to develop tools for building an effective Deaf professional- interpreter team, identify strategies to effectively voice for Deaf presenters (in a range of scenarios), and understand the five stages of the hierarchy of interpreting needs.
Hearing and Deaf interpreters (ranging from novice to experienced), students, educators and Deaf professionals.
None to some/little prior content knowledge is required to participate in this workshop.
This workshop will be presented in ASL. To request reasonable accommodations, or inquire about our cancellation policy, please contact Samantha Schein at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 22nd, 2018.
