Effective Intervention for Dual Language Learners
Many bilingual children receive intervention services only in English because clinicians – whether monolingual or bilingual – cannot speak all of the non-English languages that are represented on their caseload. This webinar will provide key strategies to support children with both of their languages, even when the clinician does not speak the non-English one. The presenter will review typical language development, growth trajectories, and cross-language transfer of bilingual children and discuss emerging literature on treatment efficacy for these children.
You will be able to:
- Summarize key findings from the bilingual intervention literature
- Describe intervention strategies to promote growth in children’s two languages, particularly when the SLP does not speak the non-English language
- Incorporate key patterns of bilingual language development into clinical practice
