DOTDeaf is an Erasmus+ funded project providing learning opportunities to a specific group of deaf adults, Deaf Language Specialists (DLSs) and co-working Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs). DLSs are a small group with specialist skills who work with deaf children and adults in educational, social and health settings.
This event is an opportunity to find out about the development of the training modules and how they were adapted to other signed languages and national contexts. We will showcase the online modules developed by project partners and hear from DLS and SLT teams involved in piloting the training.
The workshop will be suitable for: - Speech & Language Therapists - Deaf Language Specialists - Service managers interested in developments in signed language therapy
The project represents the work of representatives from the following organisations: - Joanna Hoskin & Ros Herman, City, University of London (UK) - Arancha Diez Abella, Fundación CNSE (Spain) - Mar Pérez Martin and colleagues, Equipo Especifico de Discapacidad Auditiva (Spain) - Ana Mineiro, Helena Carmo & Sebastião Palha, Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (Portugal) - Felipe Barbosa, Universidade de Sao Paulo (Brazil)
