Assessment and Treatment of English Language Learners with a Language Impairment Workshop

Event Details

Description:
There are an increasing number of culturally and linguistically diverse students who are
English Language Learners (ELLs) in America’s schools. This workshop focuses on
practical strategies and materials for monolingual English-speaking clinicians who serve
ELLs. The workshop's contents will help clinicians who serve elementary students from any
cultural-linguistic background.
 
Day One addresses nonbiased assessment strategies and materials that can be used to
differentiate language differences from language impairments in ELL students. Day Two
will focus especially on increasing working memory, improving vocabulary and overall
literacy skills, implementing Common Core State Standards, and collaborating with
classroom teachers.
