The huge Florida Mall has an enormous food court offering you complete meals for as little as $5.99 (some conference hotels charge $8 just for a hot dog).

Frequent presenters include Peter Cook, Crom Saunders, Trix Bruce, Keith Wann, Shannon Simon, Franciso Olivera, etc.

There will be language-focused and interpreting-focused classes. Classes include 6-hour tracks on Islam and Judaism plus an opening Thursday class on Interpreter’s Guild.

Many vendors will have a huge variety of items available.  With many classes having breaks hourly, there will be an exciting and dynamic all-day flow of participants in the exhibit area.

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

Do children get confused when they learn more than one language at a time? Hint, learning ASL and English at the same time. No, says a team of researchers from University of Washington.

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. Why wouldn’t Netflix and other content providers caption all of their videos?

A. Captioning costs money and all corporations worry about their bottom line.

Rene Pellerin’s corner:

Traveling on city buses alone can be scary.

Orientation and Mobility (O&M) service by an organization for the blind can help.

O&M will train us how we can travel independently.

Once we know how to get from here to there, as Deaf-Blind people, we need additional information.

A hearing blind person can listen to the call from the bus driver when it is his/her stop.

For Deaf-Blind people, we can have a 5 X 7 card with the name of our street or our stop and show it to the driver.

The driver can ask the passenger next to us to tap us on the shoulder.

Your stop is here!

Happy traveling!

Rene has started a new show business, focusing on the Deaf-Blind.
