Bilingual Phonological Development and Disorders
The population of bilingual children in the United States continues to grow. The assessment and treatment of phonological disorders in bilingual children—especially Spanish-English bilinguals—is often difficult given the lack of information on bilingual phonological development and best practices related to clinical management. The purpose of this program is to provide information on Spanish and English phonology, bilingual phonological development in Spanish-English speaking children, and current approaches for least-biased assessment and intervention.
You will be able to:
- describe theories of bilingual phonological development
- specify bilingual vs. monolingual phonological development
- prepare valid and reliable assessment protocols and intervention goals for bilingual children
