The Bilingual Authorization is an added authorization to a basic or initial credential to provide specialized instruction to individuals for whom English is a second language. Specifically it authorizes instruction for 1) English Language Development (ELD) in preschool, K-12, and adults (restrictions apply to holders of Children's Center Permits, Child Development Permits, and Designated Subjects Teaching Credentials), 2) Specially Designed Academic Instruction delivered in English (SDAIE) in the subjects and grade levels authorized by the prerequisite credential or permit, and 3) instruction for primary language development and content instruction delivered in the primary language in the subjects and grade levels authorized by the prerequisite credential or permit.
