We will demonstrate how classifiers may be used most effectively to communicate specific information in medical interpreting situations. Broaden your understanding of visual interpreting techniques regarding anatomical and medical interpreting. Learn more about Deaf Culture. Visual clips, visual aids, analysis, current medical terminology, and outlines will be available. This workshop will focus on surgery procedures, medical tools, birth, and causes of injury, illness and conditions. (0.4 RID CEUs available)

    My workshops benefit participants at all levels. Countless advanced interpreters have let me know that they enjoyed learning updated/new signs that they haven’t seen before, such as regional accents. They also loved it when I explained how to sign messages into ASL, rather than just signing in English word by word.  Interpreters appreciate that my workshops are excellent for review as well as for discovering new things that apply within the professional work environment. Students also mentioned that my workshops helped them to understand how to approach their own projects, research, and practice more effectively.
