Communiphobia

One of the many great things about the DSS program at GCCC/GCSC is that our interpreters for our deaf and hard of hearing students do their best to be present for the students needs in all facets of their college life here on campus. Our interpreters can be seen interpreting for our students not only in class but also during club and social meetings or outtings as well as during private meetings between the students and their professors, tutors, or other members of staff on campus. The program has worked so hard to make having an interpreter a staple in the college life of a deaf or hard of hearing student, that many people don’t know that there are other methods for which we can provide communication between an individual and one of our deaf or hard of hearing students. One such method is through the use of a piece of equipment called the UbiDuo.

The UbiDuo combines the ease of instant or text messaging with the speed of real time chat and the benefit of face-to-face communication.

Below is a great video that explores both the concerns deaf/hard of hearing and hearing persons have when communicating with one another as well as the barriers that are removed when using the UbiDuo.

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome weblog!
