A Critical Examination of Pathologizing Processes in Language and Literacy Education

Luigi Iannacci, PhD, Trent University

This presentation examines what is possible for young children when their language and literacy learning addresses their assets and is organized in ways that expand their identity options. A critical discussion of the processes and practices that contribute to the pathologization of students learning additional languages is also offered. Literacy curricula Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) students experience is specifically examined to highlight the nature and impact of patholigization. Research currently in progress that examines how patholigization impacts teachers will also be discussed.
