SPECIAL NEEDS IN THE BILINGUAL CLASSROOM

How to deal with Special needs in the bilingual classroom? What to do in order to ensure that all students have the same opportunity to grow and increase their learning experience? A situation that turns out to be challenging even in a context in which all or most students learn in their own language.

Here are some tips:

1. Be realistic. Your enthusiasm should not exceed real expectations. Set attainable targets ( not many) and move on only if your students are achieving them autonomously. Share those targets with them so they become active and responsible for their learning.

2. Use a wide range of resources. Special needs students will be delighted to see and work with something new.

3. Change your teaching methods. Your students need help, that means, you cannot be just doing what it’s not been working before. Remember, do not limit yourself just to the task teaching style.

4. Open up to the 21st century classroom. Technology can break barriers. Your students will be pleased to reach goals in different ways.

5. Listen . It’s important to adapt all sort of activities, resources, methods, etc, so as to meet your students’ interests and needs.

6. Enjoy the trip. It’s probably one of the most rewarding experiences in the teaching profession.

Good Luck!!!
