    The Hidden Treasures of Black ASL

    by: Carolyn McCaskill, Ceil Lucas, Robert Baylet & Joseph Hill

    Join this rich discussion on the linguistic variation of Black ASL.  Recognized for years as a distinct form of sign language, this book formalizes the study of its sociohistorical origins, the features that distinguish it, and the strong culture & community that keeps it alive in the community.

    Upon registration, an invitation to join the closed discussion group and RID paperwork for CEUs.  Participants must purchase their own book (available at any book seller, Kindle & library loan). There is no specific time participants need to be on-line. Weekly reflections are posted at the pace of the reader.

    Featured, Webshops

    Registration will be available on February 1, 2021.

    There is a shortage of interpreters trained and qualified to work in addiction recovery settings. This webshop will introduce information about addiction, recovery settings, and the journey of recovery in the Deaf community to help interpreters decide if this speciality is a good fit for them. Then, interpreters will learn about resources to help them continue their education to become qualified.

    This webshop:

    • Defines addiction.
    • Describes the varied settings within addiction including detox, inpatient treatment, outpatient, treatment, half-way houses, and peer-support groups.
    • Provides an introduction to available resources and training to learn more. There is a shortage of qualified interpreters working in addiction settings.

    *This webshop is not comprehensive, and will not make interpreters qualified to do this work, but will lay out a foundation and a path for future training.

    Cost: Free!
