Ochoa, Salvador Hector; And Others
Diagnostique, v21 n3 p19-22 Spr 1996
A survey was conducted of 859 school psychologists who had used bilingual psychoeducational assessment in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The study found that over half had used interpreters, but only 37% of the interpreters had received formal training in the interpretation process. The need for recruiting and training multilingual graduate students is stressed. (CR)
