Instruction to support the acquisition of mathematics and vocabulary for young English Language Learners with Developmental Disabilities
This session will present the preliminary findings from a research designed to determine the efficacy of a validated instructional routine on the mathematics and vocabulary acquisition of English language learners with developmental disabilities using word problems based on Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Learner Outcomes: • To learn several techniques on how to integrate vocabulary supports in mathematics instruction; • To learn components of an intervention package designed to increase math and vocabulary outcomes for students with ELL and DD; and • To understand how careful selection of vocabulary and sequencing of problems can help ELLs with DD attain a higher proficiency in English and mathematics.
