American Sign Language educational interpreters working in rural K-12 schools are on the William Woods University campus for two weeks of training.
Nineteen interpreters are attending the session, which began Sunday and runs through July 18. The training is being conducted by WWU professors Becky Davis and Dr. Barbara Garrett.
The Rural Educational Interpreter Skill Enhancement Training is co-sponsored by WWU and the Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MCDHH) and paid for by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
This is the ninth year the training has been provided at William Woods University.
