“Mad about Science” – Refine your skills in sign-to-voice interpreting in the area of science. Alida will focus on science vocabulary and classifiers that some interpreters might struggle with.  Learn to recognize the difference between mitosis and meiosis, genetic testing and DNA, know some signs from the most common elements used on the periodic table.  Alida will also share some of her previous experiences with former interpreters and how set up signs for the most frequent and repetitive terms. Alida has been told by some of her former interpreters that she is very tough to please, so she is willing to help interpreters improve their sign-to-voice fluency.  Her goal is to help interpreters reach their fullest potential so they can easily please their deaf clients.

This workshop will be presented in ASL, no voice interpretation will be provided.

Alida Hunt, a deaf adult and frequent user of interpreters, has a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences, specializing in cell development and genetics. She graduated from ASU in 2015.  She is one of those twenty something children of Arthur and Lynn Eyrich. Alida’s preferred language is PSE, more than ASL, even though she grew up in a deaf household and has multiple deaf relatives. Alida has been married for 6 years to Anthony, a hearing man, and they have 2 large dogs who respond to a number of sign commands.
