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.

The Code: an analytical approach
Dates: June 10 – July 8, 2015
CEUs: 1.0 (RID approved Professional Studies)
Limited to 30 participants
Sign Language interpreters make crucial decisions all the time. We are in the business of facilitating the most personal and private communications. Using the RID/NAD Code of Professional conduct, as a guide, we navigate through some of the most difficult judgment calls. “The Code: an analytical approach” is a five week course involving video lectures and activities you do in your own home or work space. We are offering 1.0 CEUs to each person that completes the five-week course. At the end of the course, participants will have a clearer understanding of Value Systems and what role they play in making value judgments in the context of the Code of Professional Conduct. It is hoped each participant will be able to ascertain which interpreting assignments or situations can be embraced and those that should be avoided.
Here is how it works. Beginning Wednesday, June 10th the instructor, David Hylan, MS, CI/CT will post a weekly video lecture for you to watch. At the end of the lecture you will be given an activity to complete. You will email your activity to David so he can provide you feedback, if appropriate. You will also be given a topic to discuss on the virtual classroom message board. You are expected to make at least two posts on the message board for each topic. At the end of the five weeks you will have completed five lectures, five activities, and at least five topic discussions – one each week.
The last day to register is June 7, 2015. This class will be limited to the first 30 people that register.
REFUND POLICY: No refunds are available.
David Hylan holds a Master of Science degree in Deaf Education and a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech, both from Lamar University. He is currently working on a doctorate in Educational Leadership Studies (Non-profits) at Louisiana State University Shreveport (LSUS).He has been employed at the Betty and Leonard Phillips Deaf Action Center for the past 28 years and serves as the Center’s Executive Director.
