    WEBINAR: Working with Interpreters: Enhancing Communication with Individuals Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing

    1 - 2:30 CSTDIS HQ: 15600 San Pedro Ave, San Antonio, TX 78232

    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.
