Due to the nature of this consultation-oriented workshop, registration is
limited to 12 participants holding active certifications. Please be advised
that this workshop will be diagnostic and reflective in nature and the
majority of the day will involve instructor-guided, peer/group feedback.

Each confirmed participant will be required to bring a flash drive (or disc)
with the following pre-
prepared recorded samples:

* Two (2) ASL-to-Spoken English renditions, at least 10 minutes each, one
male and one female source.
* Two (2) Spoken English-to-ASL renditions, at least 10 minutes each, one
male and one female source.
* One, ten minute Transliterated rendition (Spoken English-to-Sign)
* One, ten minute English rendition (Signs following English-like syntax
into Spoken English)

It is suggested that the recorded media be PC compatible with common media
players.

Participants may wish to bring laptops/notebooks.

Participants may also wish to bring previous test results (i.e. RID, NIC,
NAD, EIPA, BEI) for personal reference.

Major focus areas may include observation, discovery, and identification of
the following “targets” within your renditions and performance:

* ASL syntax and related grammatical features incorporated and maintained
throughout renditions
* English syntax and related grammatical features incorporated and
maintained throughout renditions
* Expansion and Compression features of language incorporated appropriately
within renditions
* Building schema and context from missing, fragmented, or partial source
language discourse
* Semantic intent within a rendition at the lexical level and at the
discourse level.
* “Distractions” such as accent and regional dialect, poor audio,
poor/blurry video, interference within the background.
* Circumlocution, including Amphilogism and Euphemism
* Ambiguity and disambiguation
* Gender variances
* Expressive and Receptive fingerspelling

Each participant will develop an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that will
serve as a foundation on which to continue supportive self-generated
feedback.

To register, your contact information, a copy of your valid certification,
and $85 (money order or cashier’s check only), made payable to MIKE
McMILLION

Registration closes with 12 paid registrants on or before September 12,
2010.

*Future sessions are being scheduled for 2011.
