Interpreters in the Special Education Field

This workshop is for current non-English language interpreters and those interested in interpretation. This session will show the importance of accurate, impartial interpretations, discuss interpreting "etiquette," present OSEP-created educational terminology in the Spanish language as a guide for interpreters, and establish the need for Spanish language interpreters to have additional training in the special education process to better understand their role in the case conference.
