Supporting Multilingual Students with Disabilities: Teacher Session

January 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

In this workshop, the presenter provides an overview of critical issues regarding language acquisition, disability status, and identification processes. Participants will have the opportunity to explore an evidence-based assessment tool used to comprehensively evaluate and untangle language impairment, language acquisition, and other language-related needs. They will then practice scoring and interpreting assessment results using a case study. To investigate the next steps after identification, participants will discuss instructional strategies, assistive technology, and classroom cultural practices used to support multilingual students with disabilities. Then, participants will observe how widely-used communication and grouping strategies, such as turn-and-talks, can be adapted to support and accommodate for the complex needs of students with disabilities and, when applicable, their technology. Participants will also observe new approaches and strategies for integrating assistive technology and language-related supports to promote communication and language development for these students.
