Effective Interventions for English Language Learners
Format(s): DVD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
It is more important than ever for speech-language pathologists to facilitate native language development in English language learners (ELLs), even when these children attend English-only schools. This self-study video outlines intervention principles, as well as factors to consider when planning intervention programs for ELLs—such as cultural identity, academic achievement, home communication, cross-linguistic transfer, and facilitation factors. The prioritizing of intervention goals is explored through case studies. Specific areas of language intervention for ELL children with language disorders are discussed, including vocabulary, grammar, story structure, and phonemic awareness, in addition to preventive techniques for the classroom and home to address ELLs’ general language needs.
