We will cover seven (7) topics focusing the human body. The following topics will be covered in every workshop in the different locations for the year, 2019:
We will have the interactive presentations using many sets of classifiers in American Sign Language! Many common phrases will be demonstrated. We will also discuss Robin D.'s Demand_Control_Schema scenarios. Role-playing sessions will be conducted after each presentation.
You know that the human body is an incredible machine! It is very remarkable to see the system from a cell to the organ, and how they function, amazing isn't? Even better, you can look at the descriptions of the body parts come alive in ASL! Imagine that! ASL sure is most awesome visual-gestural language ever! We can naturally describe the complex object more abstractly and visually!
Role-playing using scripts based on real-life communication between Deaf consumers and the service providers in a controlled environment. It gives everyone an excellent opportunity to make mistakes and learn from them then become a more effective facilitator using more classifiers instead of wordy English words. Every participant will have a chance to do roleplaying as the interpreter while other as Deaf patient using "high-visual" language.
Imagine this…you describe a hard-to-describe object in the boring subject during the long-and-dry lecture in the classroom at the school. All sudden, the transformation from dry English description into many lively visual-gestured descriptions where the Deaf and Hard of Hearing students could understand and retain more information. Yes, it is always challenging to describe an object if the wording or the word may be too complicated to explain if just fingerspelling combined with simple signs. Sometimes we sometimes have to fingerspell many “big” words while we might be unsure how to describe that word. So you will have an opportunity to learn how to represent the description visually with many different perspectives from other seasoned interpreters.

SimplyASL can offer the workshops designed for K-12 interpreters. The Deaf and Hard of Hearing children, including Children of Deaf Adult(s), are very special in our hearts. We know.
