FREE Parent Workshop – Bilingual Language Development

An Evening with Ashley Dowler, MS, CCC-SLP
Thursday, February 5, 2015, 6:00-8:00pm

Learning language is a complex task which children seem to do with ease. Learning more than one language is easier for children than adults, but it does add a level of complexity to the task and can prompt further questions. Please join us for an informative night with Spectrum Pediatrics’ speech-language pathologist, Ashley Dowler, as she provides information on the basics of bilingual or multilingual language development. A portion of the presentation will address how speech and language evaluations can consider bilingual development in the assessment to make appropriate recommendations. Parents will leave the session with some general strategies to encourage listening and speaking skills across multiple languages, insight into different methods of language learning and how speech and language evaluations can consider bilingual development in the assessment. A question-and-answer period will also be included at the end of the workshop to target questions specific to your family’s needs. We hope to see you there for this enlightening presentation!
