Abstract
This curriculum is designed to train interpreters to work with students who are deaf-blind.
It consists of a 60-minute DVD and a print manual. There are 8 modules covering legal issues related to interpreting and deaf-blind education, interpreting methods (sign language, voicing using an FM system, typing, braille), environmental and sign language modifications, and strategies to help interpreters work effectively with teachers and students to make sure that deaf-blind students have access to educational content and the
classroom environment. It describes how various types of visual
impairments (low vision, blurred vision, central field loss, reduced
peripheral vision, fluctuating vision) affect the interpreting process
and describes sign language modifications such as tracking, tactile sign language (one-handed and two-handed), and print on palm. Each module is followed by a self-check quiz. The narrated DVD provides numerous examples of the content covered by the manual and additional opportunities for self-testing. Cost: $15.00. Copies may be ordered from the Ohio Center for Deafblind Education (OCDBE), 4795 Evanswood Drive, Suite 300, Columbus, OH 43229. Phone: 614-785-1163. E-mail: ocdbe@ssco.org.
