The purpose of this INSTRUCTOR-LED LIVE WEBINAR is to provide awareness training about the particularities of interpreting for children by helping interpreters understand the importance of addressing language barriers.

There are many aspects to the interpreter’s job that require more than simply conveying what words and grammar say.

Chapter 3: Adult’s role and responsibilities
Chapter 4: Reasons for going to the court - Explanation to children
Chapter 5: Testifying - Direct examination - Cross-examination
Chapter 6: Hearing and anxiety - Interpreter‘s scope of work
"At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to ..."
1. Identify and categorize the steps in children’s development.
2. Define the aspects of the adult’s role in children’s life.
3. Analyze and develop potential interventions as an interpreter.
