A young child has been enrolled in your preschool program. The child is from another country and does not speak English. Because the child cannot respond to simple directions given to the English-speaking children, the teacher begins to see the child as a "special needs" child. Explain why being non-English speaking is not synonymous with having special needs and how the teacher can come to know more about the child's development.

Suggested Responses: Students' responses should reflect an understanding that the term special needs refers only to developmental delays or disabilities rather than to normal cultural variations such as language differences. Students should also indicate that careful observation of the child and using the child's native language or gestures instead of or along with English to give directions will provide accurate information about the child's actual developmental level.
