We are bringing Nigel Howard, International Educator, Consultant and Deaf Interpreter Extraordinaire to Santa Rosa for a weekend workshop on: “Human Anatomy: ASL for Medical Interpreters” April 4, 5 & 6, 2014

If you are not familiar with Nigel’s work, check out these links:

He is an amazing language model. This 15 hour training will cover basic anatomy and physiology of the human body in ASL, some common diseases, as well as interpreting discourse that takes place in medical settings. There will be time for discussion and practice to solidify new skills. A principle goal of the workshop is to become more comfortable and playful representing the body‘s systems in 3D space with clear, appropriate classifiers. See the attached flyer.This is the first of three trainings required of interpreters in British Columbia before they can be eligible to interpret in medical settings. We announced the workshop at NorCRID’s conference Nov 2. We will be posting the attached flyer soon on the NorCRID list-serve. We are waiting for NorCRID’s website to be up and running for online registration. The training is LIMITED TO 25 PARTICIPANTS. We want to give Sonoma County interpreters a head ups to register before the training fills up. It will surely fill up!
