Description


Distinguishing Between Typically Developing English Learners (Els) and Students with Reading Difficulties


*This is an online Course


Audience: K-Grade 12: General and Special Education Teachers, EL Teachers and Tutors; Reading Specialists, Literacy Coaches, Student Support Services Professionals, Directors/Supervisors of Special Education, and Principals

Description:

English learners (ELs) and students learning English as a second language need to simultaneously acquire interpersonal communication skills and respond to the demanding oral language requirements of academic language involved in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. This awareness-level online learning module will explore the factors related to distinguishing between below-level linguistic proficiency and a disability, including SLD/Dyslexia, to ensure that an appropriate determination has been made and to provide the student with an effective instructional plan.

Participants completing this online module will be able to: describe the factors that contribute to an EL’s difficulty meeting general education literacy standards; summarize the learning skills that transfer across languages; and outline the types of reading instruction that are most effective for ELs with reading difficulties, including SLD/Dyslexia.

For registration and content questions, please contact Bianca Irizarry SERC, (860) 632-1485, ext. 216 or irizarry@ctserc.org.
