ACET is excited to announce that evaluator Dan Regnier has been accepted to present at the 2013 ADARA conference to be held May 29 – June 1, 2013 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, entitled “Blazing New Trails.” ADARA allows those who work with deaf or hard of hearing individuals to work together to exchange ideas, suggestions, and critiques about important issues in the field. Dan’s presentation will be joining over 50 other sessions for this conference.
On Thursday, May 30, Dan will be a part of a presentation entitled “What do we know and how do we know it…Improving service delivery for individuals who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing.” This presentation will explore national surveys on the demographics of interpreter practitioners, demand for interpreting services by setting, and Deaf consumers’ needs and interpreter work choices. In addition, using these national surveys as examples, this presentation will explore the principles of quality surveys (item design, response option design, and formatting strategies) and the importance of survey field testing.
We are very proud of Dan’s acceptance to the 2013 ADARA conference! If you will be attending the ADARA conference this year, we invite you to attend Dan’s session.
