Course Overview

One of the largest demographic shifts in the last decade is the increase in the number of young children acquiring both the language of their family as well as the language of the larger community. Research indicates that supporting bilingualism from an early age can have wide-ranging benefits, but at the same time, data indicates that these children can lag behind in academic achievement. As a professional, it can be difficult to know how to include a second language or what to say to a concerned parent.

This e-Seminar explains how to best support the development of bilingual children by:

  • exploring the latest research on working with children learning more than one language
  • describing how to use this research to support their work and answer parent questions
  • sharing strategies that can be used by parents, practitioners or early childhood educators

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this 2 hour e-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain typical bilingual language development
  • Provide evidence-based information in response to frequently asked questions regarding bilingualism
  • Apply specific interactive strategies to support an additive bilingual environment
  • Describe interactive strategies for parents and early childhood educators
