How does an SLP determine if an ELL's reading difficulties are due to their second language acquisiton or a disorder?

Make sure an SLP trained in assessment of ELL students has done a thorough language evaluation. (An assessment in both English and the native language may be necessary.)Then, collaborate with a diagnostician who is trained in the assessment of ELL students. Have her assess the student's reading skills and/or academic skills. (Again this may need to be done in English and the native language.) Together you can determine whether reading difficulties are due to the acquisition of a second language or not.
