In the sixth module in this series, Cate presents research on bilingualism in children 0-3 years of age and explains when a bilingual evaluation is necessary in Early Intervention. She goes over essential skills that every bilingual evaluator should have and talks in-depth about how to work with an interpreter in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way. Finally, Cate presents case studies of bilingual children under the age of 3 that demonstrate the influence of bilingualism on early language development.
This is a module series based on a series of trainings given in March and April of 2016 for the NYC Department of Health and Mental Health Bureau of Early Intervention by Catherine J. Crowley, J.D., Ph.D., a professor of Practice at Teachers College, Columbia University. The purpose of the trainings was to provide information about the NYCDOH Bureau of Early Intervention’s standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate evaluations to EIODs, agency coordinators, and evaluators in New York City.
