This webinar is the second of two webinars specifically designed for the Early Learning Fellows. The demographics of the United States are changing. Along with this change is an increase in the number of children considered Dual Language Learners (DLL) in early care and education programs. There are a number of states that have experienced two-fold growth of dual language learners during the previous two decades.  Learn about the latest in social and emotional development research of dual language learners, which can provide useful guidance for lawmakers when considering policies and understanding practices for young DLL children. There will be time set aside for questions and discussion.
