In this session, Dr. Espinosa will briefly describe a new report from the National Academies of Science, Fostering School Success for DLLs Birth to Eighteen. She will then review what is known about best practices for young DLLs, birth to five, and provide classroom examples of research-based strategies to support the development and achievement of children who are not native English speakers.

New research is shedding light on how to capitalize on DLLs linguistic knowledge and reduce the achievement gap at kindergarten entry this setting the stage for life-long learning.
