Dual language learners are children learning two or more languages at the same time, as well as those learning a second language while continuing to develop their first, or home, language.  The Dual Language Learner Institute seeks to provide the tools needed to effectively support and engage children as you ready them for school and for life by showing the important links between language development, social-emotional development, cognitive development, and school readiness. This webcast will be useful to any Head Start employee unable to attend the Dual Language Learner Institute. In the following videos, you will be introduced to the developmental areas  that can be enhanced through a better understanding of the various cultures and languages being served in the Head Start community, contributing to better school readiness.
