Abstract:

"Do you worry about distinguishing between learning disabilities and language difficulties among ELLs who are having academic difficulties? Historically in the United States, there has been a tendency to refer English language learners (ELLs) inappropriately to special education. This has led to the overidentification of ELLs as having special education needs and a disproportionate representation of ELLs in special education. With the growing popularity of Response to Intervention (RTI), unnecessary referrals to special education can be avoided. This handbook helps you apply the principles of RTI to ELLs. It shows how to create school-based teams that include ESL/bilingual specialists, special education specialists, and other professionals who collectively have the expertise needed to explore factors that influence an ELL's response to intervention, and then develop culturally and linguistically appropriate RTI systems. These factors include personal and family factors, physical and psychological factors, previous schooling, oral language and literacy development, academic achievement, and cultural differences. The authors provide tools and strategies that teams can use to assess the nature of the ELLs' learning difficulty, collaborate in service provision, create a continuum of interventions, and measure the ELLs' response to those interventions.> ORDER PRINT COPY: $34.95 Special Education Considerations for English Language Learners: Delivering a Continuum of Services Order Now> Print Copy - $34.95 Considering this book for course adoption?
