***This will now be an entirely virtual workshop***
Interpreting for children is very different than interpreting for adults. Roman II on the EIPA is the second lowest scoring area for educational interpreters. This workshop will help educational interpreters understand each sub section of Roman II as well as develop tools that can be used everyday in the classroom to help expand their knowledge and expectations when interpreting from Sign to English for children in the educational setting. This workshop will give techniques on how to improve processing time in order to give their best product and will also give participants hands on experience with receptive skill development.
