Description of Resource

This is Chapter 5 of a larger "English Language Learner Companion Manual" that covers the intersection of ELL programs and special education.  This chapter provides information on cultural liaisons (their role, training them, etc.) and much information on interpreters and translators (their role, locating one, steps in working with one, training, etc.).  It also outlines the differences between cultural liaisons, advocates, and interpreters and where their roles may overlap.  Sample forms and a sample code of ethics are included.
