English-Hmong Dictionary of Special Education (Minnesota Department of Education) 11/18/11


In 1999, the staff from the Minnesota Department of Education worked with a group of Hmong experts to create a glossary of special education terminology. This glossary is not intended for general use and does not include general educational terms. Terms are translated according to their meaning in special education. In 2002-03, a new team of Hmong interpreters led by Mr. Dao Xiong from the PACER Center reviewed and updated the glossary.
