Identifying the Learning Development of Students Who Are Refugees
Tangen, Donna
Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v19 n2 p150-160 Dec 2009
Students who are refugees need understanding and support to settle successfully into mainstream Australian classrooms. Teachers not aware of students' prior learning and the process of second language acquisition may have difficulty providing the most appropriate learning environments to meet these students' needs. This study found that, with no coordination of information on students' learning backgrounds nor of their learning needs and development, students were in danger of being identified as at-risk of having a learning disability, with little support to substantiate such claims.
