Hello and welcome to the July issue of Perspectives. This issue delves deeply into the variables related to language and literacy development within bilingual preschoolers and school-aged children. As an affiliate of Special Interest Division 14, you are familiar with the complexities of understanding the typical trajectory of both language and literacy development and the consequential impact that understanding brings to assessment, intervention, and determining best practice for children growing up in a bilingual environment.
Dr. Megan Dunn Davison explores the factors contributing to the differences observed across bilingual language and literacy development. Dr. Davison unravels the importance of considering contextual conditions, such as home language use and the language of instruction at school, as well as age of second language exposure, and the impact these factors have in assessment determinations as speech-language pathologists. Dr. Davison offers clear and compelling directions for future research.
