REISET is a training opportunity offered by William Woods University, the Office of Special Education, and the Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The Office of Special Education funds scholarships for Educational Interpreters to attend skill development training at William Woods University July 8-19, 2013. The scholarship includes training, housing, and meals. The focus of this training is sign language interpreters working in rural areas of Missouri so they can increase their level of certification and licensure to best educate Deaf students in rural areas.
Participants will be immersed in an all signing environment in order to improve sign communication skills. Several faculty members will be teaching sign language and interpreting skills.
Please encourage sign language interpreters to apply. The application can be found at http://mcdhh.mo.gov/documents/REISETapplication2013_000.pdf.
