This Spanish Glossary Project product would not have been possible, without the commitment to authentic collaboration and consensus-building and the dedication to Spanish-speaking families demonstrated by the members of the Review Panel.  These representatives from 17 Parent Centers serve families with children with disabilities who are from more than forty (40) Spanish-speaking countries.  The members spent numerous hours at meetings and on conferences calls struggling together to ensure that this Glossary would be a high quality document that would meet the needs of Parent Centers and others seeking to inform and engage a diversity of Spanish speakers in improving the outcomes for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities.  The project would like to acknowledge and thank each of the Parent Centers and the team members listed below.
