Students with Visual Impairments in a Dual-language Program: A Case Study
Abstract: Dual-language education, or dual immersion, is an educational model that is used in public school districts in the United States to provide education to English-speaking and non-English-speaking children with the goal of having each group of students learn a second language. Over the past 30 years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of dual-language programs in the United States. Information collected by the Center for Applied Linguistics (2004) indicates that there were only seven dual-language programs in 1979, compared to 304 programs in 26 states and the District of Columbia in 2004. The Center for Applied Linguistics also reported that while most of the programs are English-Spanish programs, a total of 287, there are other language combinations, such as English-French, English-Chinese, English-Korean, and English-Navajo.
