Looking for someone to assist Assistant Professor at College of Rehabilitation Science

Looking for deaf/HOH individual to help me in a practical lab with physiotherapy students at the University of Manitoba, Bannatyne (downtown) Campus.  Accessibility Services at the U of M suggested I reach out to you as they are unable to help me this year.

The task for the physiotherapy students is to teach a deaf/HOH individual balance exercises in standing through an ASL interpreter (we have someone for that role).  The deaf/HOH person’s job is to portray someone (preferably someone in their 20s or 30s) who has recently been diagnosed with MS and has some balance issues. They essentially have a short medical history to memorize and then do the exercises as instructed. Ten groups of 5 physiotherapy students each will rotate through the room every 15 mins. 


We are able to pay $15/hr for this two-hour activity scheduled for Thursday, February 22 from 1-3 pm (next Thursday!).

If you are interested, please email me at Moni.Fricke@umanitoba.ca
