Research tells us that young children who are Dual Language Learners (DLLs) benefit when they continue to learn their home language while learning English. Early childhood programs can optimize the learning experiences of Dual Language Learners by holding high expectations and capitalizing on their cultural and linguistic strengths.
In this webinar, Suzanne Thouvenelle from the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center (ECLKC), and Jennifer Amaya-Thompson from the Administration for Children and Families, will take us deeper into exploring the Dual Language Learner Toolkit available on the ECLKC. w do program administrators, teachers, caregivers, family service staff, and families effectively support DLLs?
