IDEA Training Curriculum Now Available in Spanish

October 26, 2009 by cpehrson

The National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities (NICHCY), at the request of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), has produced a Spanish version of a training curriculum on IDEA 2004.

This curriculum is intended to help all those involved with children with disabilities understand and implement the IDEA 2004, the nation’s special education law.  Now it can also help families whose primary language is Spanish.

Building the Legacy / Construyendo el Legado: A Training Curriculum on IDEA 2004,  is organized into modules, most of which are now available in Spanish.  Each module includes:
•    a slideshow for trainers to use;
•    a Trainer’s Guide explaining how the slides work as well as the content of the slides; and
•    handouts for participants.

If the slideshow and Trainer’s Guide for a module are available only in English, trainers will have Spanish-language handouts that they can share with Spanish-speaking participants.

To view the training materials, go to the NICHCY website.
