Webinar and Conversation Series: Interpreters on Interpreting with People Who Use Atypical Language - 4/5/2021

CEUs: .2 (Content Area: Professional Studies; Knowledge Level: Some)

Webinar Description: This pre-recorded webinar includes a panel discussion on terminology, labels, use of the word “atypical” and other topics relating to interpreting with individuals who use atypical language. The webinar also serves as an introduction to a set of six new videos called Conversation Series where teams of interpreters discuss their work in this specialty area.

Conversation Series Description: These conversations include diverse perspectives—Deaf perspectives, Coda perspectives, BIPOC[1] perspectives, and more. Several of the people participating in these videos are immigrants, or first-generation Americans. Because they are talking with one another, you have access to rich insights you might not be exposed to if these individuals were talking with you directly. It is their relationships with one another and the communities in which they live that allow them to speak openly and frankly with one another—always with mutual respect and regard.
