Twice Exceptional ELLs
Friday, August 2, 2019 from 8:30 AM-1:30 PM
Even if we are experts in serving the needs of our English Language Learners, when another variable is added, it can be a challenge to make the best decisions for students who are ELLs plus. This PD will cover ELLs with Disabilities, ELLs with 504s and Gifted and Talented ELLs. We will explore the national and state regulations for each area and use these to better understand the procedures needed to ensure our ELLs are receiving the support they need and deserve.
Participants will receive a copy of the book Special Education Considerations for English Language Learners by Hamayan, Marler, Sanchez-Lopez and Damico. Register on Frontline/My Learning Plan here: https://www.mylearningplan.com/WebReg/ActivityProfile.asp?I=3095494&D=15197
