Dear Illinois Mano a Mano members please read below:

Note: (time change)
Illinois Mano a Mano presents: 
Trilingual Certificate Program
Presented by: Esteban Amaro, NIC, EIPA 4.2, TX BEI: Trilingual Advanced
There is a large and growing population of D/deaf or hard of hearing people who are Latino and for whom the primary language spoken by their families is Spanish. This population often requires language services in ASL, Spanish, and English to fully participate in today’s society. The Trilingual Certificate Program was created to ensure that certified Trilingual Interpreters (ASL, Spanish, and English) meet the minimum proficiency standards. This workshop will provide an overview of the testing and certification processes. Participants will have the opportunity to take a mock TSP (Test of Spanish Proficiency) and performance exam. Resources will be given to attendees to become candidates for the certification.
-In order for participants to take full advantage of activities, having a working knowledge of ASL, Spanish, and English is recommended but not required.-
Date: Saturday, June 9th, 2012
Time: 9:30AM- 2:30PM
