The following materials lay the foundation and highlight effective practices for DLLs. They have been purposely selected to work together to help Head Start staff gain knowledge that is culturally and linguistically responsive to the needs of DLL children.
The information in this section provides the context for addressing the unique needs of DLLs. Additional important information can be found in other sections such as Research, Supplementary Materials, and Multimedia. For example, the resources displayed under Multimedia offer strategies and best practices through webcasts, webinars, and podcasts.
