Disability in the Writing Center: A New Approach (That's Not so New)
MetadataShow full item record
Recently, I met a writing center administrator from a nearby institution at a social event. When she discovered that I am both deaf and a writing center consultant, she became very excited to talk to me. Her institution serves a large population of deaf students and she wondered if I had any tips or advice for working with them. Though her institution offered extra time for these sessions and training on how to work with an ASL interpreter, there were still challenges, she said—like one student who wanted to write back and forth rather than use an interpreter. While it worked, the tutor found it to be cumbersome.
