Toolkit for teaching deaf people to advocate for their right to sign language interpreters

Deaf and deafblind trainers can use this toolkit to train other deaf and deafblind people to advocate for their right to a sign language interpreter. The content about U.S. legislation will require significant revision or substitution before use in other countries. However, some of the general content on self-advocacy may be easy to adapt. The videos are in American Sign Language with English captions.  The explanatory text for trainers is in written English.

The web page is mostly accessible for blind people using screen reading software. The toolkit in PDF format is partly accessible, but may have some accessibility issues.
