"Disability, Civil Rights, & Other Laws for Interpreters"

Workshop presented by Shonna Magee, 0.3 PS CEUs

"Extra Credit" 0.1 PS CEU Available for Participants (read more below!)*

Please note that this workshop is open to all. It is a pre-requisite for those who wish to attend the Green track on Saturday. 

Workshop Description: 

Pop Quiz! Name three disability/civil rights laws that support Deaf consumers and two federal laws that affect the interpreting profession. Go ahead, I'll wait...

If you can't list those laws off the top of your head right now, you will be able to after this workshop! The NAD-RID Code of Professional Conduct (CPC) says interpreters are to know applicable laws and that the law trumps the CPC when there is a conflict between the two. Think about it - how can interpreters follow these CPC requirements without first understanding the laws that pertain to the profession and to consumers?

During this workshop, Shonna will hit the highlights of several laws that apply to the daily work of interpreters, such as the ADA and IDEA. You will then discuss different situations that can (and do) come up in the field, and practice applying these laws to those situations. 

Whether you are a working interpreter or working towards being an interpreter, you will come out of this workshop feeling more confident about your knowledge of disability and civil rights laws, and other laws that have a direct impact on interpreters. More importantly, you will feel more confident about your ability to apply your knowledge in the field.

Extra Credit! If you write out by hand the CPC (verbatim) and summarize each tenant briefly in your own words by the time of the workshop, you can earn an extra 0.1 CEUs! After you register for this workshop, you will receive more information on this.
