We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Humber College in the development and delivery of this workshop.
This 10 hour (2 day) interactive workshop will introduce participants to strategies and techniques for dealing with individuals in the deaf community in first contact emergency situations. Participants will learn the ASL alphabet, basic sign language for emergency situations, and communication strategies to be able to calm, reassure, assess and obtain contact and other necessary information. Participants will also spend time learning about deaf culture in order to have a better understanding on how to communicate with individuals in the deaf community. This workshop will also explore how these techniques and strategies can also be utilized when dealing with individuals who are unable to communicate in English.
