Limited English Proficient (LEP) Students Many factors must be taken into consideration when referring and evaluating a student with limited English proficiency. At the first level, the SSMT must collect and analyze information in order to determine if, in fact, the student’s problems could be the result of a disability or whether the concerns are primarily due to limited English proficiency or cultural differences. Once it is determined that a referral to the Exceptional Children Program is appropriate, evaluators must ensure that all evaluation components are non- biased and consistent with ethical standards. The attached professional practices paper details comprehensive information when considering referring and evaluating Limited English Proficient students for the Exceptional Children Program. Questionnaires and checklists are included for use with SSMT. **LEP is also referred to as English Language Learners (ELL).
