NOTIS Community Interpreters Division presents

Interpreting for OT/PT/Speech Therapies

Have you ever noticed that interpreting for therapies has unique challenges? Where do you stand? Should you use simultaneous mode to keep up? What about all that jargon? In our four-hour morning session we will review interpreting for these three therapies, looking at vocabulary specific to these encounters, and practice role play interpreting scenarios.

Yvonne Simpson is the Medical Interpreter Supervisor at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. She holds a Master of Arts in Spanish (Linguistics) and has significant experience in interpreting, translating, teaching and training. Yvonne is a DSHS Certified Spanish Medical Interpreter and is a Certified Medical Interpreter through the National Board.
