WRSD welcomes back Corey Axelrod of 2axend!

This interactive workshop explores the multiple challenges Hard of Hearing consumers face on a daily basis in today’s society and how interpreters can best adapt to provide support. During this workshop, designed for interpreters who work closely with or provide services to Hard of Hearing consumers, Corey – a Hard of Hearing individual who is also culturally Deaf and 4th generation in his family with deafness – will deliver insight and impact that enables audiences to more clearly understand how to best work with Hard of Hearing consumers.

Interpreters will leave this workshop with:

  • An understanding of the cultural identity and communication challenges issues Hard of Hearing individuals face
  • An understanding of the perceived audiological differences between Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals
  • Tools and strategies to support Hard of Hearing consumers’ unique communication needs
  • Tips for working effectively with your team (e.g., teachers, employers, CART/Typewell writers and agencies)
