Assessment & Intervention for English Language Learners with Language Impairment: Practical Strategies
October 20 @ 8:30 am - 4:15 pm
There is an increasing number of culturally and linguistically diverse students who are English Language Learners (ELLs) in America’s schools. Many professionals experience challenges with differentiating language differences from language impairments in ELL students who are struggling in school. This workshop addresses nonbiased assessment strategies and materials that can be used to differentiate language differences from language impairments in ELL students from any linguistic background. The workshop concludes with a brief introduction to principles of intervention for ELLs diagnosed with language impairment. Applications to children in poverty are discussed.
