Whole Child & Dual Language for Young Learners

Nationwide, young dual language learners comprise about 23% of the preschool-aged population. High quality early learning experiences for DLLs require developmentally appropriate practice, as well as the use of intentional and research-based supports for developing English and maintaining home language. This session offers an asset-oriented approach to embracing DLL strengths, needs, and identities in the critical early years.
