Just introducing myself. 20 yrs old and live in Madison, WI. Im a CODA, my mom is deaf, my dad is hard of hearing, and I have 2 hard of hearing aunts, a deaf aunt, and a hard of hearing uncle. Currently am not in an ITP program technicalling, im getting all my basic creidts out of the way here in Madison at a community college while my finace gets his degree, then we'll move to Milwaukee and I'll finish up school there. I guess they have a really good ITP program. I also work at Wisconsin Relay so I think that may help out with the ITP program, even though Im a CODA and already know ASL it helps to be surrounded with it all the time.

I just found this community.
I'm a certified interpreter (ci/ct) in the Seattle WA. area. I joined because I remember what it's like to be in an itp and juggling all the stress of watching videos, doing an intern, getting all the community hours, mock interpreting.....eeeek, I'm stressing myself out just thinking about it!!!
Anyways I joined so that I can give kudos to all of you in a program. Feel free to shoot me a question or if you just need a nudge to keep going.
Also I wanted to invite you to add vrs_411 to your flist. It's a community I started for gathering information on video relay services. I am a full time VRS interpreter (I freelance for fun) and wanted to make sure there was a place with vrs information for everyone to have access to. I just started the community so not much info there as of yet but keep checking. I'm an information hog so it should be getting busy in the next few days.
Good luck to all you budding terps out there.
I look forward to reading about your experiences!!!

I keep gloss-typing. How ridiculous am I?! :)
When I interpret I sign "for" when the word "to" is said. Like, "We set this up to establish a signal" I would sign "Set up for establish signal" (for the more English clients) so lo and behold... Every time I try to type "to" I end up typing "for".
Man this could get interesting :-p Current Mood: amused

Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I have just joined this commmunity, and I am hoping to be accepted to the Intervenor for Deaf-Blind persons program at George Brown College in Toronto Ontario this fall. I am self taught in American Sign Language,however my conversation skills are rusty, Im hoping to improve on that before the program starts by volunteering at the Canadian Helen Keller Center this spring through summer. Any suggestions that any of you may have to help me improve would be great!

Call for CODAs!
Hi! I'm not an ITP student yet, but I'm curious if there are any CODAs in this community. I am from Toronto and in May we will be having the first Toronto International Deaf Film and Arts Festival
. I am writing a piece to be submitted hopefully by next year about the experience of CODAs and CODA identity. As a CODA myself, I will be interviewing several other CODAs to gain insight to their perceptions and experience with Deaf culture and having a Deaf parent.
I am looking specifically for CODAs who are also ITP students and are willing to share their story for my project. If you are interested, or know someone who is, please don't hesitate to contact me at: christelreid [at] gmail [dot] com. Thank you in advance! Current Mood: curious

I'm currently in my last semester of an ITP. I'm planning on taking the EIPA next month. Has anyone taken that test?

I am an interpreting major at the College of St. Catherine. Over the coming year, I am organizing the SASE ASL poetry readings held at St. Kate’s. This is really exciting and I think we have a great opportunity to really make this event huge!
I’d like to get some new faces in to perform and show off their great material, so I need your help. Would you mind passing this message on to anyone you know who might be interested in presenting some of their poetry or stories, or have friends who are interested? Students are welcome, too. I’m trying to reach everyone!
Here are a few details:
There are 4 readings: May 10th, August 9th, November 8th, and February 7th. All readings are from 6:30-8:30 and will be interpreted via FM System for the ASL-Impaired. The first one is at St. Kate’s, but I’d like to move them to a nearby coffeehouse if there’s interest in that.
Tell your friends, have them tell their friends—then have them contact me if they’d like to perform so I can schedule them in!
