Difference or Disability--This presentation provides guidance on the prevention of inappropriate identification of English Learners suspected of having a disability. Over and under identification of English learners is common as many issues in language acquisition can be seen as a disability.  Guidance will be shared on having a strong tier one system of support for English learners as well as developing a model for appropriate referral and assessment.  Best practices for appropriate assessment and test interpretation will be shared. School psychologists, EL coordinators, administrators, Speech Language Pathologists and Special Education coordinators are encouraged to attend. 

Using the Science of Reading to Improve Reading Instruction for English Learners-- What extra supports do English learners need as they learn to read in English? How can insights from the Science of Reading help our ELs? Explore how to teach reading to English learners at different levels of language proficiency. Learn about additional supports needed in phonemic awareness, phonics, oral language development, vocabulary, background knowledge and comprehension.  Teaching reading to newcomers in middle and high school will also be addressed. Join this session for practical strategies. Intended audience includes EL teachers, reading specialists, classroom teachers, literacy coaches,  coordinators and administrators.
