How does a student qualify for Special Education services? What is the eligibility process and how are services determined? What are the parts of the MET report and IEP? How does the educational interpreter contribute to these documents? What are the procedures for implementing an IEP?  As an educational interpreter, what should I know about an IEP?  What is the difference between a modification and an accommodation?  These and more questions will be answered to assist educational interpreters in being more effective in their work.
