Abstract

The author describes her ongoing desire to improve her interpreting skills with deaf-blind individuals. She states besides proficiency in expressive and receptive skills, deaf-blind interpreting calls for insightful thinking and discerning judgment. It requires action that is outside the realm of "regular" interpreting tasks, for it requires being the "ears" and "eyes". She describes her role over the past several years and finishes the article explaining her volunteering experience at Seabeck Conference Center in Seattle, WA for a week as an interpreter/SSP. RID VIEWS, vol.23, #2, February 2006, pp. 6-7.
