“Does Demanding An Interpreter Work?” – Austin
Free Event for People who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Of course, anyone is welcome for free, and it’s for those who wished to participate in last month’s workshop, but were not able to make it.
Now, let me ask you several questions as below:
1) Do you believe that DEMANDING an interpreter (or other accommodation) for an appointment works?
2) Do you believe that the service providers are REQUIRED to pay for an accommodation, i.e., the interpreting service because the ADA says so?
3) Do you believe that ALL service providers/entities are aware of their responsibility to accommodate you to ensure effective communication or communication access?
If you answer “Yes” to at least one of the above questions, come to my workshop to find out and to have fun learning. The workshop would empower you to learn how to request an accommodation, i.e., interpreter or CART, effectively while maintaining a healthy relationship with a service provider or entity. The free workshop is scheduled and located at:
