Participants will:
-Learn about language access and the important role it plays within a Children's Advocacy Center
-Explore how to develop an effective plan for working with limited English proficiency and Deaf/hard of hearing clients
-Discuss best practices for working with interpreters

The webinar is designed for any staff or person who works to promote the safety and healing of children, including those who create policy/protocols for the investigation and response to allegations of child victimization.
