Parent Involvement: Supplementary Materials

Welcome to our supplementary materials section. This section highlights a variety of resources on how to involve parents of Dual Language Learners (DLLs). Head Start staff may find this information helpful.  

While we do not endorse any of these resources, we value their information and find it useful for programs to know that they are available. These websites are constantly changing and adding new information to support teachers and parents of all children, including DLLs. Check back often to find new resources.
