FREE MISC. LESSON – “English Learners and Specific Learning Disability CHECK LIST”

by Fun To Teach
Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

This is a freebie from a blog post I wrote on English Learners and Specific Learning Disability.

As ESL ELD teachers we are always worried about misidentification of English learners. Specific Learning Disability (SLD) is a language and literacy-related disability referring to a psychological processing disorder. If focuses on understanding or using spoken or written language. Determining whether an ELL’s learning difficulties are from language or something else is a tangled web.

As teams of educators ponder how to work best with English Learners they can reflect on a many different approaches. Here is a preliminary list of considerations I offer our staff.

I hope this offers some guidance for your school teams that work with English Learners.
