Accessibility and Accommodations for ELs with Disabilities

Notes: States with active links have policies that address ELs with disabilities. States with no active links either did not have a policy on their websites or had policy information available separately for ELs and students with disabilities. Some states use the terms English language learner (ELL) or limited English proficient (LEP) on websites.
