Abstract: Many researchers have investigated the effect of using graphic organizers on the reading comprehension of general education students and students with a learning disability. There is a dearth of research that investigates the use of graphic organizers on the reading comprehension of English language learners with a learning disability. This case study seeks to extend the literature on graphic organizers by examining their effect on the reading comprehension of one female public middle school student who is an English language learner with a learning disability. In order to maintain a small group instructional setting, two male public middle school students who are English language learners without disabilities were also included in the study. The findings suggest that graphic organizers are an effective reading comprehension intervention for the ELL with LD and ELL participants. Positive teacher perceptions of the intervention are also reported.
