What If I Am In Special Education And English Is My Second Language?

As an English Language Learner (ELL), you can receive all of the special education services that non-ELL students receive. At the same time, being in special education does not affect any of the services you are entitled to as an ELL student. One such service may be a paraprofessional who speaks your native language and can translate school work for you.
