Overcoming Common Misunderstandings about Students with Disabilities Who Are English Language Learners
Cheatham, Gregory A.; Hart Barnett, Juliet E.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v53 n1 p58-63 Sep 2017
Special education programs are increasingly serving students with disabilities who are English language learners and their families. Facilitating bilingualism is an effective practice and aligns with culturally responsive special education service provision. It is critical for special educators and service providers to learn about bilingualism, second language learning, and students with disabilities to responsibly participate in individualized education program team decision making. This column presents five misunderstandings about students who are English language learners with disabilities. Based on the research literature, responses to each misunderstanding are presented and include implications and recommendations for special educators.
