2019-01-18 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Though technical terminology related to the Assessment, Review and Dismissal (ARD) process in Texas public schools will be covered, this 3-hour continuing education course will engage participants in an understanding of the broader scope of this interpreted setting. Beginning with an overview of the history of and legal precedence for special education, as related to limited English proficiency, and continuing with the structure and timeline of ARDs, participants learn best practices (modes, roles and ethical considerations of the interpreter) and ARD-specific terminology that ultimately leads to a group demonstration and application of learned material and skills through role play.

Course Objectives:

  • To provide an understanding of history and legal precedence for public and special education in the US and Texas and how this applies to LEP (limited English proficient) students
  • To examine the modes of interpretation during ARD meetings
  • To offer an understanding of the role of the interpreter during an ARD meeting
  • To familiarize participants with school administrator/faculty/staff expectations during ARD/school interpreting situations
  • To make application of material learned, technical vocabulary, acronyms, and proper interpreting procedures in an ARD through role play
