The DeafBlind Camp of Texas armadillo logo is faded into an ancient, worn treasure map. Banner: "DeafBlind Camp of Texas Presents:" A compass rose centers like the Sun between two distant mountain ranges. Title: "Conavigation Crash Course." A red, dotted line leads like a map-route from the compass rose to the left, where two people battle a giant octopus sinking an old fashioned multisail ship. Beneath it, a skull wears a crown. The path continues down to the bottom-left of the page, where it crosses a mountain forest featuring a mysterious tiki totem. The path continues to the bottom-right corner of the page, where two people march together toward a lighthouse on a paradise island, encountering a giant, overflowing treasure chest, marked on the map by a large red X. Text: "In this workshop, Kevin Richmond and Jen Borland will lead discussions on the philosophy of Protactile Language and facilitate hands-on activities to apply basic PTL principles and strategies for working with consumers who do not use sign language or have other disabilities. Cost: $20. Approved for 0.4 CEUs. Register Now: DBCTX.org/event-4810667." Text: "Saturday, May 14. 10:00am - 2:30pm. Austin Community College Highland Campus." At top corners, logos: "Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) Certificate Maintenance Program; Associate Continuing Education Tracking (ACET).

Have you always wanted to be a part of the DeafBlind community but lacked an entry point? Or, have you been an avid community member but would like a refresher on best practices? This is the workshop for you! We encourage certified interpreters as well as students and other community members to register.

In this workshop, Kevin Richmond and Jen Borland will lead discussions on the philosophy of Protactile Language and facilitate hands-on activities to apply basic PTL principles and strategies for working with consumers who do not use sign language or have other disabilities. 

*Presenters' Message: While we are not PTL trainers, we are happy to provide resources for deeper PTL training. This is not your average workshop! Come prepared with an open mind and closed-toe shoes, and be ready to move your body! Event will be held at Austin Community College, Highland Campus.
