Resources to Support the Full Participation of Young Dual Language Learners and Their Families

As part of their Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge grant, the state of Vermont has made a commitment to providing early childhood personnel with professional development that will prepare them to better support young dual language learners (DLLs) and their families. One example of this commitment is an online toolbox of free, high-quality, evidence-based resources called Resources to Support the Full Participation of Young Dual Language Learners (DLLs) and Their Families. If you’re interested in free evidence sources, print materials, audiovisual materials, and online resources, access this toolkit at http://fpg.unc.edu/resources/resources-support-full-participation-young-dual-language-learners-dlls-and-their-families

The toolkit also includes other content sections (e.g., engaging and supporting families, supporting young dual language learners of diverse abilities) and resources that are state-specific.
