A Parent's Guide to Bilingualism | English


Often times bilingualism is thought out to have a negative impact on students with learning disabilities, speech impairments, autism, etc. Based on countless research on bilingualism, we now know that being bilingual has many advantages & it does not hinder progress, academic achievement and/or language development. However, due to countless myths & misinformation, many parents have questions about bilingualism & it's effects on academic growth & speech development. For that reason, I created an in-depth & research-based resource that can provide parents & educators with factual information about bilingualism as it relates to speech disorders, language disorders, autism, fluency, literacy, & much more!
