Eligibility of LEP students for special education and related services
The purpose of the intervention and pre-referral procedure manual below is to address the issues and concerns surrounding the eligibility of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in ASD for special education and related services.
This manual is a collaborative effort between the Anchorage School District's bilingual, special education, speech and psychology programs to articulate specific procedures necessary to more accurately identify and assess English language proficiency and acculturation of LEP students prior to considering a special education referral.
