As CLD numbers increase nationally, SLPs are being called upon to answer questions and provide services to students learning English as a second language, with little if any, formal training. This session (part one of a two-part series*) is designed to provide SLPs with vital skills and knowledge needed to respond to the unique needs of CLD students. SLP roles and responsibilities will be examined within the context of legislation, ethics, and scope of practice. Second language acquisition stages and characteristics, as well as acculturation, are the focus for this session.

As an ELL District Coordinator who also is an SLP, it was interesting to hear this term CLD, a term that is never used in the ELL literature for ELD teachers or classroom teachers...that was my take away.
