An Awesome Resource on Supporting Students with Disabilities
If you are working with a student who is struggling to make progress, you may wonder if that student has a learning disability. While there is no official diagnostic test for learning disabilities in adult English learners, there are strategies you can try to see if they help.
These strategies can be found at the award winning PANDA website: http://mn.abedisabilities.org. On this site, you will find a section called Adult Learner Intervention. You can answer a series of questions to see if the resources might be right for your student. If you answer yes to most of the questions, you can find strategies by using the menu on the right of the page and proceeding to Step 1.
This site also includes valuable information on additional topics such as mental health, vision and hearing loss, and brain injury. Be sure to check it out!
