  • Deaf Self-Advocacy - Perceptions, Abilities and Tools - Effective Practices and Curriculum

    by Lillian Garcia Peterkin

    A long-time, yet relevant topic among Deaf community leaders is how to effectively advocate for communication access, in particular for interpreter services. Over the past five years, the National Interpreter Education Center (NCIEC) Deaf Advocacy Training Workteam (DAT) has been developing a specialized curriculum devoted to Deaf self-advocacy. This workshop shares the “lessons learned” from the initiative, including the Deaf Community’s perception and beliefs around Deaf self-advocacy as obtained through surveys, focus groups and expert deaf leader input, and introduces the new Deaf Self-Advocacy Curriculum.

    Track: Grassroots and Legislative Advocacy
    Type: Presentation

    At 1:45pm to 3:15pm, Friday 6th July

  • Making Your Case: An Online Course in Self-Advocacy

    by Trudy Suggs

    Making Your Case, a free online course available in American Sign Language, offers strategies and tips from ordinary people who did extraordinary things to change laws. Case studies and stories about successful advocacy will be shared both via video clips and presentation. Through real-life experiences and hands-on activities, participants will learn how to best optimize the online course for self-advocacy and legislative needs. This workshop is ideal for participants who have programs needing funding, a law to be passed or strengthened, or a personal situation requiring self-advocacy.
