Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

The OSEP English to Spanish Translation Glossary was developed by the Region 1 Parent Technical Assistance Center@SPAN to ensure that educational terms related to the implementation of IDEA (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) used in documents to promote parents’ authentic participation are translated in a uniform and comprehensible way, across states, geographical regions and communities of Spanish speakers. Included in this glossary are the translation of more than 200 education- and disability-related terms. (posted March 4, 2013)
