Abstract

Students who are learning English is one of the fastest growing groups of students in U.S. public schools. Evidence suggests that students learning English are often placed in segregated special education classrooms seemingly contradicting the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act mandate for the education of students with disabilities to occur within the least restrictive environment including modifications and adaptations to the general curriculum. Successful inclusive practices for students with disabilities who are learning English highlight and build on the cultural, academic, and linguistic strengths students bring to the classroom. This special issue features a variety of articles focused on collaborative, inclusive practices that build on the cultural, academic, and linguistic strengths of students with disabilities who are learning English. The issue focuses on two themes: (a) instruction and support and (b) collaboration and partnerships.
