true story. A deaf person moved to a
senior citizens home. He was the only deaf person
in that home.
The staff members all took sign language classes
to communicate with him.
This same senior citizens home has a deaf housekeeper.
No one bothered to communicate with her.
Why?

This week’s ASL video in youtube

SCARED OF LEGAL INTERPRETING
There are some interpreters that are scared to
do legal interpreting – in the court room, or in the
attorney’s office or in the police station.
Reasons are that:

– a deaf person may not understand legal words

– the interpreter may not know how to interpret legal words

– if an interpreter makes an error that is overlooked, the
deaf person may suffer

This is why there are workshops on legal interpreting.
