OSEP English to Spanish Translation Glossary

This 2nd Edition of the OSEP Glossary of Spanish Translations of Common IDEA Terms includes over 400 terms related to IDEA Parts B and C.  These terms were selected by experienced translators from parent centers who worked with families with children with disabilities representing the majority of Spanish speaking cultures in Latin America and Spain.

Parents’ thoughts and perceptions of the translations were of major importance to the glossary’s development.  The project received input from ninety (90) parents/caregivers of children receiving services under IDEA through a series of focus groups.  Families from a diversity of Spanish-speaking cultures participated in the focus groups.
