I’m so excited to be able to offer this 2-part online workshop through ALA Editions once again!  Join me to learn about:

  • An overview of the different ways deaf people communicate
  • Meeting your library’s legal obligation to serve the deaf
  • Strategies for communicating with a deaf or hard-of-hearing person in the library, including basic library signs
  • Tips for finding, hiring, and working with interpreters
Closed captioning will be provided.
ASL users: please call in to the webinar using your preferred Video Relay Service provider.  When you enter the webinar, please let the host know that you are using VRS.  We will give you a link to pass on to your interpreter, so that he/she can also see the slideshow and better interpret the message.
