Workshop Description:

Certified Deaf Interpreter using: Will explain the purpose of using CDI and
trying to emphasize that CDI does not take any interpreter’s job but want
them to know that they can benefit by having them as their team interpreter
and will have role playing to get an idea on how it works.

There will be a one-hour break for lunch.

The main focus of this afternoon’s workshop is to discuss the various
reasons why Certified Deaf Interpreters (CDIs) are underutilized and
identify ways we can include them as part of the communication team. This
workshop will challenge conventional wisdom about the roles of CDIs and
determining which assignments would require CDIs.

Workshop presented in ASL. For further assistance, contact AID President
Elect Roberto Sandoval at [email protected] or (512) 364-0441.
