Ready, Set, Learn! literacy boxes to use at home. The activities are fun ways for families to promote language acquisition and early literacy.

Teachers of the Deaf present during the two hour workshop.

Parents are actively engaged in the workshop. They interact with the Ready, Set, Learn! materials during the workshop to practice the skills they will use at home.

All materials are designed using the TNELDS. Each literacy box contains 4 – 6 children’s books, materials, and activities related to a specific theme. Parents learn how to make each activity grow with the child – beginning, intermediate, advanced. Additionally, parents receive a Ready, Set, Learn! binder with instructions, resources, and a copy of the TNELDS.

Materials included in the Ready, Set, Learn! literacy boxes promote success for those children using listening, visual language support, or American Sign Language (ASL). Families will have access to direct instruction as well as GIF format that match each of the children’s books.

OBJECTIVES:
• Explore how time management impacts your well-being and personal/family/work balance.
• Learn a variety of easy to implement time management strategies to increase personal and work productivity and improve your well-being.

ABSTRACT: 
Time and energy are our most precious resources. Choosing how, where and with whom we spend these is directly correlated to our well-being. When it comes to choosing what we do during our day, we often equate doing the “right thing” with doing something for someone else. We often choose to sacrifice our own personal well-being to focus on the impact we have on our teams and the system. With technology constantly at our fingertips we often end up blurring the lines between work and personal time.  When we are physically and/or emotionally exhausted, our focus wanes and productivity is reduced.

Self-care has emerged as an important topic in the workplace. Self-care are activities we engage in deliberately to support of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Are our typical self-care activities enough to help us rejuvenate? What are other strategies that we can incorporate into our lives to improve our well-being?

Enter time management as a self-care strategy.

This dynamic session will introduce the idea of time management strategies to provide the stress relief we all strive for. There is no secret recipe for the best way to manage time nor is time management one size fits all, it is about trying a variety of strategies until you find the one(s) that work best for you. Join us, and learn simple, yet effective time management strategies that will help you be more productive and find more time to spend on yourself and your family.

PRESENTERS: Alyson Ward and Terri Patterson

PRIMARY AUDIENCE:
Family leaders, family-based support organizations, Deaf-based organizations, EHDI program staff and EHDI systems stakeholders, and Pediatric Healthcare Professionals.

Most people think of fingerspelling in ASL to mean stringing letters together, as simple as A-B-C. But what many don't realize is that fingerspelling in ASL has a semantical structure, grammar, and rules. There actually are "rights and wrongs" when it comes to fingerspelling, knowledge that will benefit any interpreter in their work. The main objective of this workshop is to examine the meaning of signed expressions by exploring parts of speech in-depth, subsequently leading to the understanding that fingerspelling has a role in expressing correct ASL grammar. 

Gary E. Mowl is the presenter for this workshop. 

The cost for this workshop is $70.00.The fee to earn .7 CEUs from RID is $5.00. Pre-registration is strongly advised to guarantee admittance and participation. Log on to the ThinkASL website at www.thinkasl.com and follow the workshop links. ThinkASL accepts payment through PayPal.
