A qualified Deaf-Blind interpreter is skilled in conveying visual as well as auditory information to the client. Familiarity with the most common modes of communication used with Deaf-Blind clients are essential:
  • One-handed Tactile
  • Two-handed Tactile
  • Tracking
  • Print on Palm

The key components of working with a Deaf-Blind client(s) are the ability to describe environmental surroundings, to be aware when sign modifications are needed and to be competent with guiding skills.
