One third of young children living in the United States are dual language learners, and the number of bilingual students is on the rise in countries around the world.* Prepare SLPs and educators to support this growing population with the third edition of this bestselling textbook, developed by three influential experts on bilingual language development and aligned with Head Start guidelines on cultural and linguistic responsiveness.


Updated with the latest research and recommended practices, this book gives a broad audience of future professionals the clear and comprehensive information they need to promote positive outcomes for young dual language learners and make informed decisions about assessment and intervention when a disorder is present. Readers will get up-to-date guidance on a wide range of key topics, including recognizing the typical stages of second language learning, supporting development in both languages, distinguishing a language delay from a disorder, planning culturally appropriate interventions, addressing reading disorders in bilingual children, and more.

With the foundational knowledge in this state-of-the-art textbook—also a valuable resource for in-practice SLPs and educators—professionals will be ready to help young dual language learners thrive, both at home and in the classroom.

Adds a significant layer of depth to our understanding of dual language development and disorders in children as well as how to provide successful interventions for those at risk of language, communication, and reading disorders. Offering a comprehensive, compelling, and accessible discussion of the issues, this volume is essential reading.

Amazingly comprehensive and accessible . . .This new edition brings the handbook up-to-date and secures its status as an essential reference for many more years to come.

Brian Goldstein, Chief Academic Officer (CAO), Executive Dean, College of Rehabilitative Sciences, University of St. Augustine for Health Science - February 9, 2021

An accessible and multi-faceted book on language and literacy development and disorders in bilingual children with critically important theoretical and practical information.

Elizabeth Kay-Raining Bird, School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada - February 9, 2021

The authors once again provide current, clear, and accessible information in a culturally responsive manner. Through interwoven discussions of research, educational and clinical contexts, and illustrative case examples, they skillfully build both a theoretical and practical understanding of the heterogeneous nature of dual language learning and how to support dual language learners with different experiences and ability levels.

Erika Hoff, Professor of Psychology, Florida Atlantic University - February 9, 2021

A wonderful book . . . both scholarly and accessible. The best source for science-based, realistic support for raising, teaching, and treating bilingual children.

Raúl Rojas, Associate Professor, Director, Bilingual Language Lab, University of Texas at Dallas - February 9, 2021

A welcome and important addition . . . masterfully synthesizes the latest evidence base on dual language learners with typical development as well as language impairment. This text should be considered required reading for clinicians and scholars.
