Assessing special educational needs in bilingual pupils
When assessing whether a bilingual learner has any special educational needs please always consider factors that may have an impact on the child's rate of progress, including:
- English language development
- learning task demands
- past or present social or emotional stress
- physical or sensory factors.
For information and support with the assessment of bilingual learners who may have other learning needs please contact our race equality and minority achievement (REMA) team.
