Touch Signals is used with people who are deaf-blind, providing visual and environmental information using various methods of touch on the body.  These signals do not interrupt formal spoken or signed communication.  Touch SIgnals are discreet and in real-time, allowing the deaf-blind person greater awareness of what is occurring in their surroundings.

Medical Interpreting: How can I interpret that?

  • Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Cary (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It's amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate. My workshop offers a myriad of ways to make interpreting more visual.
