Upcoming Mentoring & Courses

ASL Chat With Deaf Language Mentors

Perhaps you are in or have graduated from an ITP and you are determined to pass the NIC or BEI. Or maybe you are striving to achieve a 4.0 on the EIPA. Are you already certified but despite all your training and hard work, you know you are still struggling with your reception skills. Maybe you need to expand your vocabulary and simply feel that your signing is not fluid enough. You know you need more exposure to Deaf individuals who are native users of sign language but that has proved to be a challenge.

Please join us this winter for a two hour weekly ASL Chat! You will have the opportunity to learn from Deaf Mentors from diverse backgrounds with a variety of signing styles.

You will also have the option to join our Collaborative Practice room where you can enjoy guided interpreting practice with a Deaf Mentor and peers. This is a fantastic opportunity to chat, ask Deaf individuals questions and be mentored in a safe and supportive environment!
