It’s also a question that we want to help you get answered at this site. What brings you here today? We hope it is that you are looking for a forum to get resources related to interpreting in healthcare settings and take part in professional development and dialogue.
In this vein, we have created a series: What Brings You Here Today?
It contains a variety of Deaf people answering that question as if they were in a doctor’s office. It’s a great chance for you to see how some Deaf people talk about these types of issues. We hope, just like it does in a doctor’s appointment, it is only the beginning to the process.
You will be able to see ASL responses on a variety of ailments and from a variety of generations. We will be adding more of these video responses throughout the course of the next few months. To begin with, we are featuring three generations of the Beldon family.
Each ASL response includes an English translation.
