Part 3 will build upon the skills learned in Parts 1 & 2 through the following: Participants will view a three-way communication interaction between two Deaf-Blind people and one sighted individual, observing how Pro-Tactile strategies are applied to assist a constant stream of backchanneling that supports the speaker and the listener throughout the exchange. Participants will also see how to apply Pro-Tactile skills to real-time interpreting experiences when the presenter is Deaf-Blind. Incorporation of visual environmental information throughout the exchange will be demonstrated. Time will be devoted to Q & A at the end of the session.
