SPOTLIGHT! On Strategies to Support English Learners with Special Needs

Are you unsure of where to start in supporting English learners with exceptional needs? Many educators do not receive training in this critical and complex area, and it can be overwhelming to try to figure it all out on their own. In TESOL’s new online course, “Supporting English Learners with Exceptional Needs,” teachers can build their knowledge of English learners with disabilities and engage in discussions, activities, and projects that will prepare them to help learners reach their potential.

During this interactive six-week course (from May 18 to June 28, 2020), participants will learn how disability is viewed across cultures. They will be introduced to strategies and practices that support English learners with exceptional needs, as well as assessments, programming, interventions, and services for English learners who have disabilities. By the end of the course, participants will be able to identify types of disabilities and their impact on language learning, select and use appropriate strategies to support English learners with disabilities, apply elements of an effective assessment and evaluation process for English learners who may have disabilities, and recognize key components in the process of collaborative planning to support English learners who may have disabilities. Upon completion of the course, they will earn six Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
