The Dual Language Learners Program Assessment (DLLPA) helps Head Start, child care, and prekindergarten programs ensure the full and effective participation of children who are dual language learners (DLL) and their families. It outlines strategies for a coordinated approach across management systems and program services.

The second webinar in the series focuses on the Education and Child Development Services for DLLs section of the DLLPA. It includes teaching and the learning environment, curricula, and child screenings and assessments. You will discover how programs can use these DLLPA sections to assess their existing systems and services. We will also talk about available resources, including a Planned Language Approach (PLA), that can help you address needs identified in your DLLPA self-assessment.

Topics for the Webinar

  • Exploring the Education and Child Development Services for DLLs section of the DLLPA and the ways it can be used to examine existing systems and services
  • Considering how the PLA can support a coordinated approach to integrating culturally and linguistically responsive practices
  • Learning to implement responsive care, effective teaching, and an organized learning environment for children who are DLLs
