2nd Grader with no English or Spanish

Hello

I am new here posting for the first time. I have a new 2nd grader that has no English but can't do anything in Spanish either. His speech in Spanish is awful I am running out of ideas I am pulling him out with two Kindergartners I have that are Spanish speakers only but they don't understand him either.

Anyone has any ideas please please they are very welcomed!!!!

That situation throws up some pretty big red flags for me.

How does he communicate with family? Can his family understand his Spanish? Do they speak Spanish or maybe it's a dialect?

I would have a Spanish speaking speech teacher test him, because there may be some speech issues (or language processing issues).

But I also agree with the PP - if he is unable to communicate in either language well, focus on English until you figure out what is really going on.

I wouldn't let this one drop. I had two students who had similar situations, one ended up having a very very severe speech issue, and the other took two years of speech and is now able to communicate well in both English and Spanish.
