In this paper we demonstrate that American Sign Language (ASL)-English bilinguals should be eligible for classification as English Language Learners (ELL). While this identification should remain optional in order to be responsive to individual differences and preferences, we argue that identification can result in increased educational services and access to appropriately targeted instructional support.
