Product Description
In this packet you will not only find big visuals, NO PRINT option, and colorful graphics with a great idea, but you will also find evidence-based resources on 2 important questions we face as bilingual SLP’s:

1) Why treat two languages?

-We must support each bilingual student’s connection to their family and their community which is essential in child development.
-We must facilitate and support their social need (even when the student becomes English proficient or has dominance in English, most families will speak the home language).
-The transfer of skills learned from the home language to English is more attainable.
-Existing treatment studies show that small gains in the home language is obtained when treatment of bilingual students is provided only in English.
-Existing data also shows that there is a pattern towards a shift for English dominance after Elementary years with possible plateau or language loss in the home language (Konert, Bates, & Hernandez, 1999). (However, bilingual students continue to need to use the home language as a social need with their families).

2) What are my treatment options?

-Teach skills that transfer such as teaching Meta Skills which may include: comparing and contrasting semantic features, multiple-meaning words, emergent literacy, phonological awareness, etc…(Kelley & Kohnert 2012)
-Provide activities that support cognitive skills such as memory, attention, and processing speed. (Ebert, Kohnert, et al., 2014)
-Look for elements that are shared in both languages.
-Explicitly compare and contrast the difference between languages
