Dual Language Learners and Special Education

Facilitated by Maria Wilson-Portuondo, Phyllis Hardy and Maria Campanario

Date: August 17, 2017

  • The interplay of 4 key factors that impact the development of IEP goals and instructional planning for a Dual Language Learner Student With Disabilities.

Teachers in Dual Language Programs struggle with IEP’s when planning instruction for DLL SWD.  The current IEP does not clearly present linguistic and socio-cultural factors of DLLs often resulting in an ineffective planning and monitoring tool. Facilitators will map out the interplay of four key factors (linguistic, socio-cultural, academic factors and disability) necessary in the development and implementation of goals and benchmarks.  As a result, participants will understand how the four factors impact the student’s ability to access curriculum, which in turn can assist teachers to develop and plan for instruction.  Participants will be able to revise existing measurable annual goals and benchmarks that address both language and disability needs.
