Strategies on Infusing Deaf-Blind Related Content into the IEP Curriculum – A Share Shop Amongst Instructors
It is the intention of Interpreter Education Programs to prepare well-rounded, knowledgeable and skilled practitioners. Yet we are doing them a disservice by not providing adequate exposure and experiences specific to deaf-blind interpreting strategies. A recent survey conducted by the National Task Force on Deaf-Blind Interpreting & the National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers validated this concern as many instructors reported a lack of the requisite content knowledge and skills that are needed to teach deaf-blind content. This online webinar will provide a platform for the sharing of resources amongst IEP instructors on content, activities and materials that are available. Content will be shared from the national survey of interpreter educators, examples of content that should be incorporated and activities for inclusion into the IEP will be suggested. IEP instructors will be asked to share their own ideas and suggestions to their colleagues.
