Among the sample of respondents who worked in a community setting, only about one third were women.

Community providers across the nation are embracing the transformation from facility-based employment supports to competitive integrated employment.

The contexts explored here, American Sign Language/English interpreting and spoken language interpreting within the European Parliament, show that simultaneous interpreting involves attitudes, norms and values about intercultural communication that overemphasize information and ...
