A FREE TTY MACHINE
I know that most Deaf now use relay operators or VRS, but I have an elderly deaf friend who has a new TTY and telephone that she does not use. Her son had it, but he never used it. So, she would like to get rid of it. Do you know of anyone who could benefit from having a TTY? Please let me know so I can get it to you.

a msg from New Orleans Sign Language Services, LLC:
Sign Language Kids

Sign Language Kids Program is an “ASL Total Communication Power for Learning” approach to providing your child the ability to express themselves more readily by taking advantage of all modes of communication, which includes sign language. Total communication has not only proven to be the preferred learning mode for Deaf and hard of hearing children, but is also an excellent tool in providing your baby access to communicate before your child is able to speak.

Many parents of children with communication, learning disorders and autism have also found sign language to be a very helpful tool in communication. So, whether you just want to have your baby learn sign language in order to help them to start building their language/communication skills at an early age or if your child is Deaf, hard of hearing or autistic; learning American Sign Language can be an excellent opportunity for you and your child.
We offer a wide range of programs and experiences for you and your child to share. We offer ASL parties and in-home sessions for you and your family and friends:
Sign Language for Babies
Sign Language for Kids
ASL Party Time
ASL Anytime
Kid’s ASL Classes
With each of the above programs, study materials, study links and video aids are included for your personal use.

The test consists of 177 questions and takes approximately one and a half to three hours to complete. This computer-based test is administered through the Internet. A passing score on the EIPA Written Test is not needed in order to take the EIPA Performance Assessment.

Preparing for the Test

The EIPA Written Test is based on a set of knowledge standards that was developed by a group of experts, including deaf consumers, interpreters, interpreter trainers, deaf educators, and ASL linguistics.

The test is not a factual memory test. In other words, memorization of the knowledge standards only, may not enable you to receive a passing score. Application of knowledge to situations is necessary in order to pass this examination.

The test is also based on the EIPA Code of Professional Conduct for Educational Interpreters. The RID Code of Ethics is not the basis for professional conduct in the EIPA Written Test.
The written test will be given in 2013 during the months of February, March, May, June, September, October and November 1st – 15th, 2013.

Water Kefir Workshop with a short intro to … HEALTHY COOKING!!! Friday, Jun 14 2013 

Water Kefir Workshop

with a short intro to… HEALTHY COOKING
It is time to stop drinking soda (which is bad for you) and opt for something that tastes a million times better, is healthy … and is much more affordable!!!

Instructor: Barbara Lovas, ThD
Date: Saturday, June 15, 2013
Time: 1pm – 2:30pm
Cost: FREE

Location: TBA (location will be given w/ confirmation of attendance — due to limited space)

Ok, it is time for a last minute water kefir workshop. My kefir is growing so fast that I need to give some away!!!

Workshop Part 1

Those who attend will be given some grains and instruction on how to make water kefir. I will include a recipe and resources. Please bring to the workshop a regular canning jar (pint or quart).

I will provide you with all the instructions, ingredients and the recipe needed to make your first batch. So, you will go home prepared to make your first batch. As always, I don’t sell my grains or scobies, but will give them away. Workshop Part 2
We will go over general guidelines to eating healthy. Topics will include homegrown probiotics, fermented foods, and our body’s need for fatty acids. We will also discuss how to make healthy tasty alternatives to replace foods that we need to eliminate from our diets. Of course, you can expect me to fuss a bit about white table salt (poison) and artificial sweeteners (poison) … but I will give you healthy alternatives! In fact, I will give you an opportunity to taste them.

We will make 2 or 3 recipes together. One recipe will be chia pudding. I have not decided what the others will be yet. If you have any preferences, let me know.
NOTE: If you want milk kefir, water kefir or a kombucha scoby, remember those are available according to my supply. That being said; If you ask in advance, I should have some milk kefir grains and maybe some kombucha ready to give away on the day of the workshop.If you are interested in attending this workshop, please reply to this e-mail and let me know you plan to go. Due to limited space at this workshop, I will give you the meeting place location/address with your confirmation. Feel free to invite your friends, just make sure you inform me, so they are added into my headcount.:)

I am looking forward to seeing you there. For those of you who live far away, feel free to ask me for handouts and resources if you also want the information.

Seize the day!!!
