Guilty until Proven Innocent: Evaluating Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners for Special Education - 29609

Evidence might suggest that the future is unclear for students identified as CLDs. In addition to having among the highest dropout rates and retention rates of all youth, other influences from society affect their educational experiences. These factors include the availability of appropriate language supports and limited understanding from educators and evaluation staff on how to discern cultural/language differences and actual disabilities. This session will present an overview of the characteristics of diverse learners and students with disabilities who need additional support to make adequate progress in the general education environment.
