La Sopa de la Abuela: Special Education Telenovela

Cultural competence is so important when working with our special education population. This resource created by Arlington Public Schools uses the 'Telenovela' concept to engage Spanish-speaking families into understanding the special education process. It has the drama, the real cultural concerns on assessment and services, and accurate information on the special education process. Check it out and share it with your families.

This series was designed to support the engagement of families in the special education process, share information, encourage advocacy skills, and foster collaborative homeschool partnerships which positively impact student success. Created by a design team that included family and staff members, we hope you’ll join us for the journey of one family as they navigate their emotions, learn about special education, and make decisions.
