These post is a link to a live chat for Understood.Org, a division of the National Center for Learning Disabilities. Understood.org is a website for parents who have questions about their children who have learning and attention issues. The website conducts daily webinars and chats in Spanish and English on critical topics for parents. It is a great resource for parents and the link to their main page.
This post is sharing the live Spanish chat I conducted for Understood.org on the special education process for parents and how to know whether a bilingual child is having difficulties in schools due to the English language learning process or because of a potential disability in both languages. The chat is in Spanish and parents can access it at any time. Click here to access the recorded live chat.
