Sharon Neumann Solow, Trenton Marsh and I presented: “Ohana: Celebrating our Ties. Deaf and Hearing Interpreting Teams” at the Region V conference in Honolulu, HI. During our session, we were able to demonstrate our work with local Deaf interpreters from Hawaii, and showcase their training and skills. It was a very successful workshop for everyone involved. Here is a picture from the workshop on June 13, 2012.
I look forward to starting the phase 2 of our work with local Hawaiian deaf interpreters in our follow up supervision training program. Additionally, I will be presenting and interpreting at the Region V conference in Waikiki.
