This workshop will explore the importance of maintaining professional boundaries when working with the Adult Education population. We will discuss the dilemma of maintaining boundaries inherent to Adult Education, define boundary role violations vs professional relationships including the role of influence and power and “the slippery slope” of boundary violations. The workshop will end with concrete suggestions for maintaining clear boundaries and professional competence.

Statewide Disability Workshop-Recognizing Disability in English Language Learners (ELL) - C.E.S. Trumbull

Free

with Laura DiGalbo

Calendar Apr 30, 2020 at 9 am

Some of our ELL students have difficulties beyond what is expected of a student learning a new language. Often times these students may show adequate or excellent skills in oral English but can not read or write in English. While others may be able to read English out loud but not comprehend the meaning of the passages and still others may have more personalized difficulties. When we are unable to find a way to influence their learning, we feel stuck. We and our students are frustrated.

This workshop will explore signs of disability vs lack of education in their native language and English, the dilemma of unavailable assessments for possible disability issues and finally universal designed strategies to help these students without obtaining diagnoses.
