For the educational Interpreter who aims to make the academic content more accessible by using clear go-to strategies to work through different circumstances whether it be a multiple choice questions to word math stories. The strategies include language and grammar aspects as well as technical aspects that form an understanding of how to perceive the learning environment for a D/HH/DB student. There will also be opportunities for discussing cognitive and behavioral factors to better navigate how to create interpretations that may be the most efficient for the student.
Workshop participants can be given basic tips about the following regardless of the topic chosen so the interpreter can have a better handle on when and how to modify their interpretation:
- The ways that Linguicism and Language Privilege impact how we interpret.
- Identifying markers for differentiating FOI vs cognitive challenges in your student
- Tips addressing FOI vs cognitive challenges
- Tips for accessing multiple choice questions, reading passages, math problems, quotes, and so on.
- Tips for monitoring a student's derailment in understanding and how to follow up
