Are you full? Managing Your Processing Capacity - Presenter Chris McGaha

What happens when our brains have trouble handling all the information coming in- whats really going on? How do we manage the source language and produce an equivalent message? Interpreters will discuss the components at the Effort model of interpreting and how we can manage our processing capacity so as to become more effective in our interpreting. Language Availability and Message Equivalence will be discussed in relation to the work as well as what potentially causes our processing to slow down.

Deaf Family Reunion is an event celebrated by adults and children living with a common experience. Our deafness, which is a communication disability, sets us apart in a finely grained ranged of experiences. Within those experiences, we find common ground with one another, we are a Deaf Family. Within the Deaf Family, there are different approaches to reconcile with the challenges that having a communication disability brings: our Deaf Family includes ASL, ESL, and Oralism (AGB).

Every and anyone that has ever known a deaf person, everyone that is deaf/Deaf/Hard 0f Hearing/Oral/Deaf-Blind, and people from the community that are interested in Deaf Culture and the use of sign language are part of the Deaf Family. Deaf Families celebrate the successes of everyone, including those that are not ‘culturally Deaf’ because they at least have a common experience that comes from the challenge of interacting in verbal dialogue with others. Being a member of the Deaf Family speaks to inherent strengths in being able to find non-verbal ways of expressing meaning, intent, and desire.

The event is an annual homecoming for the described Deaf Family, is the opportunity where they meet friends old and new. This year, The Deaf Family Reunion will invite regional organizations that have associations with the deaf community to take this opportunity as a clearing-house of information about how we can best work together as a community to support and promote the Deaf Family.

You are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch, bicycles, bathing suits (to frolic in the fountains + the Great Mississippi River Model), game balls, etc. Explore one of our city’s greatest parks and be a part of the Deaf Family Reunion!
