WRSD presents Stephanie Feyne presents ASL to spoken English: Beliefs ---> Strategies

 Stephanie Feyne
Stephanie Feyne

What do we believe about communication? Why do we make the choices we do when working into English? What is the impact of those choices on how Deaf people are heard?  

In this workshop we will explore some of the challenges and approaches to interpreting from ASL into spoken English in general, and specifically when working with Deaf professionals. Areas of focus are communication, markers of register, structures in ASL that are vastly different from those in English, and how personal communication style, beliefs and habits contribute to the final interpreted output.

This workshop will be presented in English because we are thinking about English and the impact our words have. ASL interpretation can be made available. Please contact Ami Slater (aslater@wrsdeaf.org) for more information.
