New Online Seminar that Addresses Language Acquisition Versus Learning Disability

ELT is now offering a 5 hour online seminar, Intervention and Identification: Supporting ELLs with Ability Differences, that is perfect for teachers, school counselors, school psychologists, and social workers who are questioning whether to recommend an ELL for special education services.

Although all students demonstrate a wide range of strengths, needs, and social characteristics, the increasing diversity among English language learners (ELLs) presents puzzling questions for education professionals. This is especially true of ELLs who, despite receiving appropriate language-related supports and services, still do not demonstrate adequate growth or achievement in school. In these cases, we ask the question: Is this issue related to language acquisition or to disability? In this online seminar, you will explore critical issues related to interventions for ELLs who present unique learning challenges, as well as the assessment and disability identification processes which occur once intervention is proven ineffective.

Register now for this online seminar that is only available for NYSUT members. ELTs online seminars are convenient and flexible to accommodate the needs of busy educators.

This online seminar can be used toward meeting the Language Acquisition requirement and fulfilling Continuing Teacher & Leader Education (CTLE) requirements as NYSUT ELT is an approved provider.
