Interpreter Influence on Self-Advocacy Development in High School and Beyond, Sarah Brown, Tia Ivanko, & Claire Ryan

Presentation Summary: This presentation will focus on NDC’s national initiatives from the Postsecondary Interpreting Task Force. Currently, the task force is seeking opportunities to foster reflective practice of deaf-centered services, one of them being feedback. The purpose of formative feedback in postsecondary institutions and programs is to continue a dialog regarding the fit of the professional within the specific context and to support the interpreter as an effective service provider. The presentation will present summarized task force activity to date, discuss reflective practice in the context of the role of the interpreter in promoting postsecondary accessibility, and identify opportunities to empower students to offer input on the effectiveness of communication access. The perspectives of deaf student clients are essential to this process and may bolster educational outcomes. .
