Practical Assessment and Treatment Strategies for English Language Learners (ELLs) With Language Impairments– Many SLPs face the challenge of assessing and evaluating English language learners (ELLs) whose primary language they do not know in order to ascertain whether students are manifesting a language difference or a language impairment.
