We are pleased to announce the launch of the DBI Module Series! This online, on-demand, asynchronous module series focuses on DeafBlind interpreting and the culture and linguistics of protactile ASL. Module 1 is now available to the public on DBI Moodle, our virtual classroom space.
About DBI Module 1: The Protactile Movement
This online module provides a cultural understanding of the evolution of the protactile movement. Jelica Nuccio and aj granda share the four fundamental components of protactile: history, philosophy, attitude, and language. This video narrative combines anecdotal stories and personal experiences that highlight the importance of a DeafBlind person’s autonomy, especially in relation to working with interpreters. This content is meant to provide a basic foundation for future modules that will explore more about the linguistic evolution of this emerging language.
