Alcohol & Other Drug Signs Workshop

With Bob LoParo, CI & CT

This workshop introduces Alcohol and Other Drug [AOD] concepts for ASL-to-English, English-to-ASL, & Interactive situations guided by current Best Practices and Regional Dialect comparative samples. Specific terminology (English/ASL Lexical Items) will be presented & discussed. Practical exercises (ASL-to-English, English-to-ASL, & Interactive), presenter/partner feedback, and small group evaluation/debriefing will assist participants in identifying personal styles/boundaries and recognition of situations that may potentially contain AOD concepts. For participants’ skill development and application to their professional development, additional community/online resources will also be discussed.

This workshop will be presented in ASL.  Voice interpretation will not be provided.
