Supporting Dual Language Learning
Supporting children who are dual language learners in the U.S. is a
critical component of building equitable educational systems.
Speaking two languages is associated with social, cultural, health,
cognitive, and economic benefits. Yet, U.S. educational classrooms
lack adequate resources to support dual language learning. I-LABS
is developing and testing new educational programs that support
dual language learners so children can learn more than one
language and experience the benefits of bilingualism. We are
providing better support for children who are dual language learners
and their families.
