This webinar focuses on recent research on the school readiness development of young Latino Dual Language Learners living in the United States. In addition to sharing recent research findings, Dr. Lopez will share research based best practices for welcoming and working with Dual Language Learners and their families in the Early Childhood classroom. Suggestions for developing a culturally and linguistically responsive environment will also be provided.
