VRS Training: Working with Individuals Who are DeafBlind

Course Description

This course has been designed to increase the awareness and knowledge
of Video Relay Service (VRS) interpreters on how to most effectively
meet the needs of consumers who are DeafBlind.  This course consists of
a combination of video presentations and text documentations.  The
presentations are presented in ASL and voice interpretation and captions
are not available for this course as it is geared directly for VRS
Interpreters.

This 30-minute web based multi-media training is divided into the following 5 topics:

    • Introduction to the DeafBlind Community
    • Etiologies of DeafBlindness
    • Accommodations and the Role of the VRS Interpreter
    • DeafBlind Culture
    • Terminology
    • MyMMX

Course Objectives

Our hope is that by the end of this training you will have a better
understanding of the DeafBlind community, how a combined vision and
hearing loss effects communication, and concrete strategies to
effectively accommodate callers who are DeafBlind.

Presented in ASL Only. No Captions or Transcripts.
