Supporting English Language Learners with Disabilities - 009517
Student performance data shows that students with disabilities and second language learners continue to struggle in general education environments. With this in mind, what does one do when a student is both a second language learner AND a student with a disability? In this two-part ZOOM series with Virginia Gonzalez, participants will explore the unique opportunity these students present and how to meet their needs. Day one will focus on understanding the unique needs of English learners with a disability and how a lack of proficiency in English impacts their ability to access and make progress in the general curriculum. Day two will build on information from day one and focus on the additional steps teachers need to take to ensure an appropriate IEP is developed for these students. Participants will be viewing a statewide broadcast via ZOOM that will be streamed ONLY to each ESC.
