Announcing a New Resource for Interpreter Educators and Practitioners

CALI recently launched an Annotated Bibliography including articles, books, presentations, and videos related to atypical language. Each resource is summarized in ASL and English, and direct links are provided whenever possible. While you’re on the site, be sure to complete the survey at the top of the page. We welcome your feedback.

Language Analysis Team Update

The CALI Language Analysis Team met in early August to review 30 recorded interviews (out of 51 interviews conducted in early May) of Deaf and DeafBlind individuals who use atypical language. The analysis that took place in that meeting resulted in identification of a wide range of specific instances of atypical signing. Following that meeting, a model of factors influencing atypical signing was developed that will be used in CALI’s online training modules.
