Language Acquisition vs. Learning Disability
October 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
This workshop will help school personnel learn how to distinguish learning disabilities and speech language impairments from the normal language acquisition process.
Participants will understand the guiding principles that are used when determining an appropriate course of action for English Language Learners (ELLs) suspected of having a disability. Particular attention will be paid to the natural acquisition processes of a second language and on using MTSS to reduce the referrals of ELLs for special education services.
