The linguistic skills a young dual language learner (DLL) acquires are life-long assets. However, all DLL children share a common trait: they are learning at least two or more distinct linguistic systems during a critical and rapid period of linguistic and cognitive development. How do we best support these learners and their families during this crucial stage of learning?

Join the Office of Head Start as it highlights effective DLL teaching practices and the benefits of being a dual language learner. Head Start will offer one interactive e-learning session per day from February 18-21, 2020.
