For survivors who are culturally Deaf, the best way to provide them with accessible services is through a qualified American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter. This webinar will provide an overview of what to look for in ASL interpreters to interpret for Deaf survivors and provide insight into what Deaf people look for in an interpreter as well as how interpreters can best meet those needs. The importance of confidentiality, impartiality, and accuracy in interpreting will be highlighted as well as the legal and ethical obligations service providers have for meeting survivors' language access needs. Some less common types of interpreting needs will also be explored.
End Abuse of People with Disabilities Webinars are designed for practitioners and policymakers interested in ending violence against people with disabilities and Deaf individuals. Registration closes two weeks before the webinar date.
