Complex ASL Syntax 

Interpreters often face barriers when their voice interpretation must include concepts related to syntax.  This is possible due to sign assimilation among other elements including key vocabulary, fingerspelling production and fluency are included in the drills. Such elements will be discussed and explained, and participants will have time allotted for application of the information and skills taught during this training.
