11/17/12 8:00A  -  11/17/12 12:00P   Techniques for Comprehending Fingerspelling and Nonmanual Information
Speaker: Frances J. Beaurivage, Manager EIPA Diagnostic Center, RID CI/CT
Description: Strategies to Utilize when Fingerspelling or Nonmanual Information is Not Comprehended
Sign language users utilize fingerspelling for multiple purposes; interpreters need to be able to decode fingerspelling and have strategies for coping when the term cannot be decoded. Nonmanual information conveys information that adds to, or changes the meaning or intent of a term or statement. The goal of the training is to introduce interpreters to strategies and coping techniques that will enhance your receptive skills and ultimately improve your ability to deliver a more effective spoken English interpretation.
