Often times in K-12 settings, when faced with a situation that crosses a boundary, interpreters will use ASL signs like BACK-OUT (of a situation), DRAW-THE-LINE (between me and the consumer), THINK-SELF ("It's up to you.") and NOT-MY-BUSINESS.  Yet, when talking about necessities of educational settings, these very same interpreters will assert how critical it is to create rapports with Deaf student(s) and hearing consumers. These two seemingly contradictory views leave the educational interpreter in a quandary.

This workshop will focus on the use of SSPs within the realm of professional interactions. such as job interviews, platform speaking, and workplace etiquette. This will allow for the development of higher level skills. including haptics. protactile philosophy, and respect for the autonomy of the DeafBlind individual.

(NEW!)  Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It's amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate.   My workshop offers a myriad of ways to make interpreting more visual. We will demonstrate how classifiers may be used most effectively to communicate specific information in medical interpreting situations.
