Communication: Supplementary Materials

Welcome to our supplementary materials section. This section highlights a variety of resources on communicating with Dual Language Learners (DLLs) and their families. Head Start staff may find this information helpful.


While we do not endorse any of these resources, we value their information. 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.
