“Say What?” Often, as interpreters, we focus upon sign expansion since that isn’t the native language for most of us. However, the words we select can make a difference in how our deaf consumer is viewed in the hearing world. Are we doing all we can to reduce barriers and misconceptions… or are we oppressing and limiting them based upon OUR OWN limitations? This workshop will focus on expanding interpreters’ vocabulary so we can do the most professional job possible.
