It's a Touchy Subject

Oct
09
Mon

This workshop is designed to explore subjects in the educational setting that can be a bit touchy to interpret. We will take an in-depth look at Family Life in the K-12 setting and how interpreters can be better prepared to approach the subject in the most professional way. As interpreters how many times have we been faced with the decision: to expand or not to expand, what exactly is my role here, or how far is too far? The goal in this workshop is to empower interpreters to take an active role in their interpretation of touchy subjects and get the intended message across to the client showing respect to the deaf/hard of hearing student as well as any professionals in the room. Other subjects such as Science and History are explored to find out how to address the challenges that arise in the classroom. The workshop will also include open discussion that will enable the group to learn through others experiences. Whether you are a seasoned interpreter or just beginning your journey, this workshop has something for everyone.
