ASL Interpreter Workshop | Body Language & ASL presented by Dr. Byron Bridges | Dallas TX | .6 RID and BEI CEUs

Body Language & ASL presented by Dr. Byron Bridges

This workshop will focus on how to read and detect body language signals from people using ASL.  Through lecture and small group discussions, we will analyze the different perspectives of body language to include proximity, kinesics, and nonverbal gestures.  Guaranteed to be an eye opener for even the most experienced interpreter.
