what does research say about the effect of balingualism on language learning?
Weegy: Two separate issues related to young DLLs with, or at risk for, disabilities need to be considered. [ The first concern is that young non-English speakers may be wrongly diagnosed as having a disability, particularly given the challenges of assessing their development and language learning. It is difficult for teachers to know, for example, if not interacting with and not talking to classmates, extreme shyness, not paying attention, or even tantrums are symptoms of behavioral problems or typical of young children learning English as a second language (Santos & Ostrosky, n.d.). The second area of concern is adequately supporting DLLs who have disabilities. Often they face difficulties related not only to the disability but also to the widespread notion that these students can or should learn in only one language. All DLLs (including young children with disabilities, who may experience slower language development in both languages) should be given the opportunity to keep their home language while also learning English (Cheatham, Santos, & Ro, 2007). No scientific evidence supports the idea that being bilingual causes or leads to language delay, while there is evidence that children with special needs may be even more likely than other children to lose their home language and the benefits that come from being bilingual (Cheatham, Santos, & Ro, 2007; Division for Early Childhood, 2010). ] (More)
