The OSEP Spanish Glossary Project: Reaching a Consensus on Translations of IDEA

The brand new web-based Spanish Glossary of IDEA Terms funded by OSEP and developed by the Region 1 Parent Technical Assistance Center @ SPAN. This glossary comes about through the collective and collaborative efforts of eighteen (18) OSEP-funded Parent Centers (PTIs and CPRCs) serving the diversity of Spanish-speaking families with children with disabilities. It is designed to address the need for commonly accepted Spanish terms for translating information on IDEA for families from English to Spanish. While it has been specifically designed for use by parent centers, this glossary is also useful for technical assistance centers in the TA&D network and others who are working with Spanish speakers.
