    9 a.m. - 3 p.m.San Antonio College

    There is an increasing importance being placed on the role mathematics signs play in teaching and learning in the classroom. Many teachers and interpreters have different signs for certain mathematics terms and it is possible that a lack of standardization may influence learning. There is a particular need to discuss perceptions of education for the deaf.

    This workshop was designed to assist new and experienced mathematics teachers and interpreters for the deaf as well as students interested in learning about mathematics signs. Most teachers and interpreters did not have signs for advanced mathematics terms and finger-spelled those terms to avoid inventing signs. This workshop helps you to be familiar with mathematics terms and how to apply to interpreting settings.

    The workshop will be conducted in ASL. English interpretation will be provided if requested before January 27.

    Cost: Free + complimentary lunch will be provided (vegetarian/gluten free options available)

    Register now for the next webinar in our 2018 End Abuse of People with Disabilities Webinar Series - Working with Interpreters: Enhancing Communications with Individuals Who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

    About this webinar:

    For survivors who are culturally Deaf, the best way to provide them with accessible services is through a qualified American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter. This webinar will provide an overview of what to look for in ASL interpreters to interpret for Deaf survivors and provide insight into what Deaf people look for in an interpreter as well as how interpreters can best meet those needs. The importance of confidentiality, impartiality and accuracy in interpreting will be highlighted as well as the legal and ethical obligations service providers have for meeting survivors' language access needs. Some less common types of interpreting needs will also be explored.

    For more information, you can visit the website at www.endabusepwd.org

    We'll be hosting a webinar watch party at our office if you'd like to come watch on the big screen! To RSVP, please reach out to Crystal Tower by email at ctower@deaf-interpreter.com or phone 210-888-0039. If we get enough RSVP's we'll be providing light refreshments.
