I attended a workshop today and the presenter shared these resources with us for screening and identifying gifted/bilingual students. These came from a Javits Grant they wrote, and are for Spanish Speaking parents, but I would think you could translate the to what you need.

Hope these are useful to some of you. I am really excited about the identification instruments for using with our ELL students!

Great info. I've been working w/ ELL in mind a lot lately. I'll have to take some time to really get into this info. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing these! What a great resource! I work in a largely Spanish-speaking community so these will definitely come in handy!

In particular, I have a student who is at grade level, but not necessarily gifted. His parents are convinced that he is gifted but I haven't seen the signs of "giftedness" in him. The printables on these pages will help them understand the differences between 'at grade level' and 'gifted/talented'.
