NURIEC is committed to work with Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) providers in order to promote and realize effective utilization of interpreter services by professionals when working with their deaf and DeafBlind consumers.
NURIEC provides webinars to VR personnel to promote effective utilization of interpreting resources. With advisory and outreach support from Regions I and II of TACE, the webinars have addressed topics on VR interpreter needs assessments and implications, the Deaf Self-Advocacy Training curriculum, how to work effectively with interpreters, and the Deaf interpreter.
A new NCRTM site is in development. It will feature robust search capabilities, a star quality rating system, enhanced usability and accessibility, and most importantly, new resources. Site content will include high quality training materials that cover a range of topics relevant to the rehabilitation and education communities. Additionally, while the new clearinghouse will focus on current materials, an archive of NCRTM resources dating back to the 1960s will remain available. Links to archived versions of the webinars listed above will be provided once the site goes live.
Our LPN includes VR personnel who actively advise our activities and their evaluation.
