What's Different in the Assessment Process for ELLs?

As the number of English learners and bilingual/multilingual students continues to rise in the US, teachers and administrators are in critical need of appropriate and effective processes for assessing the eligibility of students with disabilities who are also English language learners. In this webinar, you'll learn the latest updates on assessing English speakers in four areas: linguistic, cultural, legal & research. A process for distinguishing between second language indicators and learning disabilities is presented that embeds MTSS practices within the process of the eligibility decision-making process. Specific guidance will be presented on development of IEP goals that address English language development and academic needs for English learners.
