YDHAT Summer Signing Time

Some Parents of D/HH children and Deaf/HH Mentors are wanting to offer Summer Sign Language classes in your neighborhood. Plans are still underway and more information is forthcoming.

If you are interested in having a Sign Language Tutor to assist you, your group or your organization in learning basic sign language, please contact me and I will refer some individuals to you.

Would you like to become an interpreter? Do you think you have the skills? Would you like to test your knowledge?

Testing is available for individuals who are interested in becoming an educational interpreter or community interpreter.  The Quality Assurance Screening Test or the QAST is one such test that is required as well as the EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Test).

These 2 test will allow you to work as an interpreter once the required levels are met. Please contact this website for EIPA http://www.taese.org/cms/index.php/task12 and http://ace.arkansas.gov/arRehabServices/programs/fieldServices/officeDeafHeaingImpaired/Pages/interpreterServices.aspx
for QAST.

Soon, there will be a great demand for interpreters. Therefore, begin learning sign language at one of the local sign language classes.
