    Community of Practice: ASL to English Practice

    The language and choice of vocabulary that we choose to use when interpreting from ASL into English has a large impact on the perception of the deaf individual by the English speaker.

    In this session we will:

    • Practice interpreting high level ASL presentation into high levels of English
    • Practice framing constructed discourse and action and summarizing details
    • Identify Powerless Language and practice eliminating it.

    Facilitated by Teresa Ford, this will be a more open format than a regular workshop with full participation by all who attend.  Open to all levels of interpreters, students to advanced. Practice your skills in a safe, encouraging environment. Learn from your colleagues and have some fun doing it!

    If you have any questions, please contact Teresa Ford,
