Rapidly identify speech-language patterns related to second language acquisition to distinguish difference from disorder.

Determining whether a student’s speech and language errors result from influences from their native language or whether they are indicative of speech or language impairment is a challenge many educators face. One in every five children in the United States comes from a home in which English is not the primary language.

In this book, we:

  • Cover the 12 most common languages and AAE!
  • Explain how to analyze two languages
  • Compare and contrast phonology
  • Share articulation targets for both languages
  • Identify common syntax and morphological differences
  • Help to identify appropriate goals

Take a Look:

The framework used to distinguish language differences from language disorders is beneficial for all educators, and the use of this framework will result in improved instructional targets for culturally and linguistically diverse students in the general education classroom, as well as more appropriate referrals for special education evaluations.

Difference or Disorder? Understanding Speech and Language Patterns in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students

Rapidly identify speech-language patterns related to second language acquisition to distinguish difference from disorder. Determining whether a student's speech and language errors result from influences from their native language or whether they are indicative of speech or language impairment is a challenge many educators face.

Our goals are to:

– Help teachers know when a referral is needed
– Equip speech-language pathologists with information they need to accurately analyze speech and language samples
– Get students the support they need
– Reduce disproportionate referrals of culturally and linguistically diverse students for special education services

The development of this book stemmed from the needs of a group of speech‐language pathologists evaluating the speech and language skills of children from many different linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The framework used to distinguish language differences from language disorders is beneficial for all educators, and the use of this framework will result in improved instructional targets for culturally and linguistically diverse students in the general education classroom, as well as more appropriate referrals for special education evaluations.
