Training Description

There is a large need in California for serving monolingual Spanish Speaking LatinX families through service delivery. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough bilingual providers to meet the growing need.

In this workshop, we will review the best practices that the literature addresses when providing linguistically appropriate and culturally responsive services with the use of translators.
