WSRID knows that COVID-19 has deeply impacted people both personally and financially. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, Sorenson, and our CMP sponsor, ASL Communications, the following webinars are being offered to certified and associate WSRID members free of charge. Registration opens Monday, May 11th at wsrid.com/events with a 15-person limit for each webinar. In an effort to provide these webinars to those most impacted and to as many members as possible, we ask that you limit your registrations to no more than two. If a webinar still has room two days prior to the event, members may add it as a 3rd event.
Message Analysis in ASL
May 27th @ 4–6pm (PST) — Presenter: Paul Glaser
This 2-hour webinar lays a solid foundation to message analysis. Participants will use a step-by-step approach to identify the theme (gist) of a passage, as well as the main points, details, function, register, and affect of several ASL statements. Through practical application of the message analysis process, participants will discover that there is more to the message than just what is on the surface – and for an interpretation to truly be effective, it must take into consideration all of these components.
