CLT Skills Development I

Prerequisite(s): Educational Interpreting Defined (EID); ability to cue
Class length: 1 day/ 8 hours

Intended Audience:

  • signed language interpreters
  • cued language transliterators
  • principals
  • special education program coordinators
  • teachers
  • parents

Why must the interpreter/transliterator role be different than the teacher, disciplinarian, aide, or helper? How does a interpreter/transliterator  contribute appropriately as a member of the educational team?

This class focuses on the implications of educational interpreting and transliterating with regard to mainstreaming and inclusion. The Code of Ethics and the Code of Conduct are explained and illustrated through real classroom examples. A linguistic analysis of cued English, spoken English, ASL and MCE provides the backdrop for a comparison of signed language interpreting and cued language transliterating processes and outcomes.

This one-day class can be offered following Educational Interpreting Defined to provide two full days of training.
