Pearson's EBP Briefs: Bilingual Vocabulary Support for Dual Language Learners: A systematic review
Presented by Ulla Licandro, PhD
Text
Course: #8449 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case examined the question, “Would a DLL child (age 2+) with delayed or impaired vocabulary development show gains in both languages when supplementing intervention to his or her second language (L2) with an indirect SLP-supervised or prompted first language (L1) intervention - in comparison to no supplemental intervention in the child’s home language or no intervention - as shown by L1 or L2 vocabulary growth?” The related literature search & analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision & application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals - Fourth Edition, Spanish (CELF-4, Spanish).
