In the top left side corner, there is a dark green rectangular box frame that has a photo of a Caucasian woman with dark hair just past the shoulder length. Is wearing a purple short sleeved shirt with a pocket on the left-side, has on dangly earrings and is smiling. The background in the photo appears to be blurred out. Underneath the picture reads, Leah C. Geer, PhD Associate Professor & Program Coordinator, ASL & Deaf Studies, Sacramento State.

Underneath is a ACET logo (Associate Continuing Education Tracking) in black and white.

Below it appears the RID logo in black and white. At the bottom left side corner is a small light brown textbox with dark green content that reads: For more information/refund cancellation policies, please contact

To the right of the image and underneath the title is a large light brown textbox with dark green content that reads:

This presentation provides an overview of topics related to ASL linguistics geared toward interpreters.

The presentation will cover domains of linguistic structure -- phonology, morphology and syntax -- as well as language acquisition trajectories for children with exposure to language from birth and those with delayed first language exposure. The workshop will include interactive activities in which participants can reflect on the newly presented material and how it can inform their interpreting practice.

The next line reads outside of the light brown textbox with bold dark green content: Sunday, March 21 st , 2021 | 10am-1pm PDT.
