“Do you want to understand more about what dementia is?
Do you want to find out how to support communication with Deaf BSL users living with dementia and their families?
This full day workshop, based on real life examples from the Deaf community, will enhance your knowledge and support your everyday strategies while you are engaging with this specific client group.
This workshop will also consider strategies that interpreters and deaf professionals can employ in relation to communication and look at the process from initial consultations through to assessments, diagnosis and support.
This is open to interpreters and deaf professionals.
