Sample Hybrid Interpreter Input Form for the Communication Plan

A team of interpreters working at a high school in Marion County created their own form by including some of the behavioral checklist items on the form.  They are pleased to share it with all interpreters (it is in a form that will allow cutting and pasting) in hope of providing quality information to the IEP team.
