1 day course on Childhood bilingualism: issues in language acquisition, cognition and language impairment (Saturday 23 September 2017)
In this one day course, we will discuss the latest research on the acquisition of two languages from birth to 5 years of age. We will introduce participants to the fundamental concepts of language acquisition, and to issues that concern the acquisition of two languages, focusing particularly on the relationship between bilingualism and cognition, language development, and the assessment of language and communication difficulties. The course will include a practical component, in which participants will learn about a) issues and solutions in the assessment of language and communication in simultaneous bilingual children and in EAL children and b) practical advice that professionals should give to parents.
