ENCORE: English Language Learners and IEPs Inclusive Education Project (IEP) Podcast

    • Education

Today's show is a replay of a very popular and informative episode that we hope you'll enjoy.
Today’s topic has popped up recently in some of our cases, and it’s an important one to cover because it is under-supported and often overlooked in the IEP world. We are discussing the ELL designation, which stands for “English Language Learner.” Join us to learn when a child should be designated as an ELL, how things should progress from there, and what the school district’s obligations are when that designation is given. 
Show Highlights:
A student’s ethnicity can prompt false assumptions that come with an ELL designation (which can mean different things in different cases).Understanding the differences in an ELL designation, an ESL designation, and a dual immersion programA student’s language proficiency impacts their ability to learn in different environments–and the IEP should reflect this fact.A student’s primary language can have unique nuances that are very different from English, which greatly affects testing, evaluations, and assessments. Considerations about inherent racial bias in assessments–and why they should be done in a student’s native language
