Description of Resource

This manual is designed to provide assessment and eligibility determination guidelines to special education professionals. These guidelines can be used where traditional evaluation procedures may not be appropriate. The guidelines reflect a broad view of connections between ELL programs and special education. The manual's conclusions are based on specific aspects of diversity such as race, culture, the acculturation process, high mobility among families and poverty rates.  (Description from source.)
