Many ASL interpreters haven’t had an opportunity to experience working with a CDI. This 3 hour workshop is an opportunity to talk about ways to identify when you need a CDI, how to advocate for requesting one, and experience the process of working with a CDI (you can just watch if you want!!!). The relationship between hearing interpreters and CDIs is a topic being discussed on a national level. This is an opportunity to have that conversation on a local level.
· Identify when you need a CDI
· How to advocate for requesting a CDI
· Understand the relationship between hearing interpreters and CDIs
