Assessing Language Variation, Oct. 25
Join Russell Ross in examining personal variation in language (Dialect) and how to identify demands on assignments that may indicate the need to employ a Deaf Interpreter. Participants will also explore how Paul Grice's cooperative principle "Maxims of Speech" and Demand Control Schema Sequence and EIPI (Environmental, Interpersonal, Paralinguistic, Intrapersonal) may benefit the practitioner on assignment when attempting to assess for appropriate communication supports. See Workshops for full details and registration info.
