    About the Presenter:


    Bob LoParo—RID CI, CT, holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Xavier University. He has train ed and interpreted extensively with DeafBlind individuals, Alcohol/Drug Addiction Services, Theatrical/Performance (Juilliard School/Theatre Access Program/Theater Development Fund), cruise vacations, post-secondary settings, and conferences (state, regional, national, and international).

    He has been involved with multiple RID Member Sections since he joined RID in 1999, including ITOC (Region V Representative, 2011), BLeGIT (Region V Co-Representative, 2009), DeafBlind (Vice-Chair, 2015), IEIS, and Deaf Caucus. Mr. LoParo is also the Co-Chair of the Membership Committee for SCRID, Southern CA RID Affiliate Chapter (2013).  Bob was also a member of the SCRID ad hoc Bylaws Committee in 2015.

    Intersectionality, Power/Privilege/Oppression, and minority studies has always been of interest to him, considering his non-traditional background (Irish mother and Italian father–thus the name!) and lack of cultural Asian upbringing, necessitating his personal journey in discovering his roots, values, and identity. He has presented this workshop 3 times in the past 6 months, with multiple requests across the country for future engagements.

    Mr. LoParo has taught at the university level since 2000 and has been an adjunct instructor in the ASL/ITP Department at El Camino since 2008 and the Faculty Adviser for the student-run ASL/ITP Club, Hands Of Friendship since 2011. He enjoys teaching, mentoring, and presenting—assisting all ITP students and practitioners in reaching for ever-higher goals and abilities, while also mutually gaining wisdom and skills from those he works with on a daily basis. Power, Privilege, and Oppression are realistic experiences his students report regularly, so he emphasizes such topics & discussions during class. He is also a crazy-cat owner (4!), and a zombie, sci-fi, and science/technology-phile.

      DeafBlind Way: Modes of Communication

      The DeafBlind and Sighted communities both experience some kind of awkward and uneasy feeling in working together, not sure which and what the best communication method is. This workshop is a perfect opportunity to have a quick preview of the most appropriate communication approach in the community. This workshop will also discuss the ProTactile movement that has changed the DeafBlind community. The workshop will include individual and group activities that would help.


      SATURDAY, 1pm to 3pm (2 hours)

      Visual Description: Culture Sensitivity

      Visual information exposes us to our surrounding in several essential ways, and being able to convey what you see and the impression you get is the goal in working with DeafBlind community. The workshop will discuss visual orientation including mood, style, feeling and culture. With two DeafBlind Persons of Color, the workshop will include culture sensitivity in describing visual surrounding.


      SATURDAY, 3:15pm to 4:15pm (One hour)

      DeafBlind Panel: Embrace our Identities

      DeafBlind individuals will engage in a discussion with the attendees regarding their experiences in various settings, sharing their struggles, successes, and excellent anecdotes that occurred along the way.
