For those seeking training for home language interpreters for families at IEP meetings, Wisconsin DPI has partnered with WI FACETS, LEAs, and other organizations to develop a one day training for home language interpreters who interpret for families at IEP meetings. The training provides increased awareness of state and federal laws, regulations and policies related to the educational rights of students who receive special education through an IEP and who may also be English Language Learners. The training also provides increased knowledge of legal responsibilities and requirements related to translation and interpretation of special education, terms, concepts, tools and resources for interpreters. Finally, the training supports improved skills to handle common ethical considerations while interpreting IEP meetings.
