How many times have our diagnostic
How many times have our diagnostic results come back from testing only to see things like “use of space would have enhanced the product”? This workshop has a specific focus on eye gaze, role shift, and use of space in ASL. Many times, when an interpreter is working into ASL, they struggle with showing the relationship between people and objects in the setting. This workshop will allow hands on activities for the participants to practice using those skills. The workshop starts out with a discussion of the importance of these skills, then leads into basic sentence samples which allow the participants to manage the work in smaller chunks.
- Assess and increase their eye gaze ability in ASL
- Demonstrate 2 ways to improve their use of space
- Demonstrate a minimum of 2 ways to improve their role-shifting process
