Topic: Demand Control Schema: An Overview - Strategies for Sign Language Interpreters and Spoken Language Interpreters
2:30pm Pacific / 4:30pm Central / 5:30pm EST
Presenters: Patricia Alonzo, M.Ed, CMI, CHI
Offers IMIA CEUs 0.15 CEUs

The presentation will be an introduction of the Demand Control Schema theory and its benefits. The presentation will focus on explaining the theory and how it has favorably impacted ASL interpreters and now it’s incorporation in spoken language interpreting. The presentation will use direct structure, outline, examples, and practice activities from the Demand Control Schema book and those created by the presenter. It will highlight practices that can be added to an interpreter “toolbox” for application in day-to-day interpreting encounters to ensure the interpreter stays within the scope of his/her practice while serving LEP, Deaf, and Hard-of-Hearing patients. The presenter will highlight how this model can be used onsite, over the phone interpreting (OPI), and in vide remote interpreting (VRI) to the participants can use in any modality.  The intent of the presentation is to bring light on a “new” theory and model to support interpreters within their day-to-day interactions with the LEP, deaf, and hard-of-hearing community.
 

  • The participants will gain an understanding of the Demand Control Schema model.
  • The participants will have a clear understanding of the benefits of applying this model in their interpreting encounters.
  • The participants will learn how to apply the model for onsite, OPI, and VRI interpreting.
  • The participants will learn how American Sign Language Interpreters have embraced and applied this model to their interpreting practice.
  • The participants will learn how they can apply this model to spoke language interpreting and make their encounters more successful.
  • The interpreter will be challenged to participate in small group discussions during the presentation.

 
Patricia A. Alonzo, M.Ed., CMI, CHI.  I am a nationally certified medical interpreter and the Operations Manager at Stratus Video Remote Interpreting for a national team of medical interpreters. I am trilingual (English, Spanish & American Sign Language) interpreter serving the Deaf Latino and LEP community, professionally, since 1998. I worked for a national non-profit organization as the Director of Training for Latinos with disabilities with a primary focus on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community and the disenfranchised population. I coordinated training, advocacy initiatives and educational empowerment for the Latinos disabled community. Taught American Sign Language as a second language in Hillsborough County and was part of the Global Language Committee for text book selection and curriculum development. This participation allowed me to create the ASL curriculum for courses in Hillsborough County Schools. I have mentored and trained interpreters for the CMI certification exam. For six-years worked at a comprehensive cancer center as their trilingual medical interpreters. Furthermore, for over 10 years I was a full-time freelancer in the medical, legal, theater, educational and platform interpreting area in both consecutive and simultaneous modalities. I attended Columbia College Chicago and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in American Sign Language Interpreting. I hold a Master’s Degree in Education from Nova Southeastern University where I am a Doctoral candidate with a focus on Organizational Leadership with a dissertation focus on how medical interpreting impacts health outcomes in the LEP community.
