A Double Helping: Serving Dual Language Learners
January 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Identify common patterns and influential key factors of dual language development
Apply understanding of patterns and key factors of dual language development and evidence-based strategies to distinguish between “language difference” and “language disorder.”
Learn how to dynamically apply and individualize evidence-based best practices to identify the unique strengths of dual language learners and effectively support them.
Important Session Information:
This accelerated course is designed to support educators (e.g. speech-language pathologists, intervention specialists, psychologists, ESL support staff, general education teachers, etc.) in the school-based setting in appropriately supporting, assessing, and treating dual language learners (i.e., children who are learning a language in addition to English). The course discusses types of bilinguals, language difference vs. disorder, response to intervention, assessment, and treatment of these diverse learners.
This course will be online and can be taken at participant’s own pace. There is an average of one module per week.
