The increasing attention on supporting young dual language learners (DLLs) often focuses on preschool-aged children and less so on infants and toddlers. In this session, research on the development of the youngest DLLs (infancy to age three) will be presented. In addition, presenters will share innovative approaches for applying this research to early childhood practice, in both family child care and center-based care programs.
