[Perspectives on Special Education Services for LEP Students.]
Martinez, Olivia; And Others
Appendixes B, C, and D of the Conference Proceedings relate to coordinating bilingual and special education services in one school district. The first section considers steps in developing a plan for collaboration, noting the importance of dialogue and communication among special educators, bilingual educators, and staff of programs teaching English as a second language. Solutions are offered to situations in which staff do not speak the child's language and existing resources are shared. Guidelines are offered on approaches to identifying and serving limited English proficient handicapped students. A second section briefly summarizes a collaborative approach which features training of credentialed bilingual teachers in special education and recruitment of already trained bilingual special education teachers. A final section compares California state requirements for bilingual and special education in terms of purpose, student identification, assessment/diagnosis, student evaluation, placement, parent rights, and advisory committee function.
