"Working with Deaf People: A Deaf Perspective"

Come and learn some basic techniques on how to improve your interpreting skills from a Deaf perspective! Engaging in these strategies and anecdotes from the field, will offer you a better perspective on the interpreting field. In this workshop, we will address: 

  • Appropriate expansion and compression techniques that benefit the Deaf recipient
  • Negotiating situations in which a Deaf consumer requests the interpreter's advice 
  • and more!
