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

A session at 51st Biennial National Association of the Deaf (NAD) Conference

  • Lillian Garcia Peterkin

Friday 6th July, 2012

1:45pm to 3:15pm (CST)

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
