Summary: Beyond the Words is a non-public agency (NPA) that provides Sign Language Interpreter Services for school based services that are identified on Individual Education Plans (IEP's).

Beyond the Words is a company that will be utilized to provide Sign Language Interpreter Services to ensure that all of our needed DHH Services are covered for the 2017-2018 school year. MDUSD Personnel Department and Special Education continues to recruit and hire district employees.
Funding: Special Education Department Program Code 1216 DHH
