This DLL Initiative Family Workshop helps families better understand different strategies for raising a bilingual child, the stages of language and social emotional development for young dual language learners, and tips and ideas for supporting their young DLLs at home.

This DLL Initiative Family Workshop helps families learn more about Dual Immersion or Dual Language Education programs (K-12), best practices of early learning programs that support multi-lingual learners, and ways families and teachers can partner to support children’s culture and language development.
