Improving English Language
parents of children with disabilities
frequently have difficulty accessing
services and care for their children
due to language barriers.
Without a functional command
of English, these parents cannot
effectively advocate for their
children, be an active partner
with schools to develop their
children's Individual Education Plan
(IEP), or understand their
children's rights and entitlements.
How TEACH Is Helping
TEACH has started to develop
collaborations with agencies serving
children with disabilities and their
families, to provide English literacy
tutoring focused on language skills
parents need to communicate with
schools, doctors and community
resources regarding their
children's disability and needs.
