Childhood Bilingualism from the Perspectives of Research and Clinical Practice

May 30, 2019

6:30pm–7:30pm
Lecture
Details

Many children across Canada and the globe grow up learning more than one language in their homes. Parents and educators often wonder whether bilingual children follow typical developmental patterns. Speech-language pathologists also struggle to identify language disorders in this group of children because the assessment tools aren’t specifically designed for multi-language settings. In this talk, we will share recent research findings on bilingual language acquisition and how it is informing caregivers and speech-language pathology practice today.


This is a free public lecture from our "May is Speech and Hearing Awareness Month" series.
