How can you tell if your EL student has a disability or is simply adjusting to a new culture and language? This session will explore the areas of language proficiency, achievement, behavior and adaptation to determine whether or not a student is progressing appropriately. Attendees will leave with information about "red flags" that might indicate the need for further information as well as a list of best practices for supporting EL students in the general education classroom.
