The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of primary language support on the math skills of English learners with learning disabilities. Twelve EL learners with learning disabilities, ranging in age from 8-10, participated in this study. The experimental group received math instruction in Spanish for a five-week period, while the comparison group received their math instruction in English. Data indicated no significant difference between the groups at post-test. However, further analysis was completed that showed further research in the area of primary language support for math instruction for English learners with learning disabilities is needed.
