About the Training

A successful SILC must be representative of all people with disabilities in the state, and a strong SPIL must address issues faced by people with disabilities in different communities and of diverse backgrounds. In this training, you learn how a SILC can come to understand and implement cultural and linguistic competence on their Council and in the SPIL. Presenter Tawara Goode is a nationally recognized leader in cultural and linguistic competence. She provides the learner with the best tools, resources, and in-depth information to assess their state and SILC as it stands now and to develop an action plan to achieve and sustain cultural and linguistic competence.
