Helping Kids Thrive

May 6, 2021

Guest: Lidiette Hamilton, M.A. CCC-SLP

In US households, over 350 languages are spoken and about 10% of students in US schools are considered English Language Learners. The languages these families choose to expose their children to impact their education, their future, their identity, and their connection with their families. Many of these families have concerns about what their child's language development should look like as they learn two (or more) languages.

In this episode of Helping Kids Thrive, Nicole talks with certified bilingual speech language pathologist, Lidiette Hamilton, about bilingual language development. During this episode, Lidiette addresses several myths surrounding language development for children learning multiple languages at once, gives insight into the research on this topic, and answers questions commonly asked by parents who are concerned about their children's language development.
