Additionally, with CART, the student receives the transcripts of the sessions to use as notes.

If the interpreters keeping up with the pace of the class is a problem then you might want to consider having the student try a cart service. This will probably be faster at presenting the dialogue to the student than fingerspelling large anatomy vocabulary words. Using text based transcripts can be challenging for some deaf individuals who have difficulty with written English though.

We have student who uses in-class ASL interpreters taking an Anatomy & Physiology class this semester. Much of the medical terminology is extremely time-consuming to translate, so the interpreters have asked for assistance in creating visual aids that will allow them to keep up with the pace of the instructor's spoken lecture.

I’m currently chasing up sources for high resolution images (of the labeled anatomical diagrams we need) that are suitable for enlarged print. Before I start “re-inventing the wheel” I wanted to reach out to my fellow ATHEN-ites to see if anyone else has ever had a similar situation. If so, how did you provide visual aids to the interpreters?

Thanks! Happy Friday!
