We partnered with ABC HSS to provide a dual-language ++ program in their summer camp. In our little group of children, more than 10 languages were spoken: Punjabi, Somali, German, Harari, Tagalog, Tamil, Bambara, Urdu, Malayalam and French. Amazing! #MultilingualismIsNormal #UAlbertaCSD @UofARehabMed
C’est avec plaisir qu’on partage notre Guide du Programme StimuLER: Un programme communautaire de soutien au développement langagier des enfants réfugiés ou nouveau arrivants.
At the @MultilingFamLab, we are committed to supporting the mother tongue(s), or first language(s) of multilingual families. Around the world, about 40% of children do not have access to an education in a language they speak or understand.
For their capstone project, SLP students McCleary, White & Piquette completed an scan of needs for dual-language stimulation in Edmonton and pilot our program. Parent perspectives indicate that a mixed-delivery approach would cater to unique community needs during the pandemic. We obtained #SSHRC funding to pursue this work. #UAlbertaCSD @UofA_RehabMed
