Hi all! Watch this MDAD Symposium vlog by VP Meredith Dodt. Hope to see you all there!
Meredith Dodt: Hello! Do you want better interpreting services?
Did you know that you can make it happen? How? Come to the MDAD Symposium on Saturday, October 11. Where? At Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia.
Betty Colonomos will host a workshop all day from 9 AM to 4 PM. By the way, refreshments will be provided. What’s the purpose of her workshop? To break out in various groups to discuss the kind of issues we face in interpreting everyday. Now is the time to work together and take action.
What kind of discussions will there be? Here is a list:
- Why do the problems exist
- Interpreter behavior and skills
- Consumer behavior and requests
- The role of agencies
- How interpreters can provide better services
- How the deaf community can provide better services
