Meeting the Needs of Children with English as an Additional Language in the Early Years


“Young 3-5 year old children who are learning English as an Additional Language (EAL) and their language learning needs are sometimes overlooked in educational texts, as well as in schools and settings, because it is assumed that young children will 'pick up' English naturally and very quickly.”  (NALDIC)


 This 2 hour course will offer you opportunities to:


 ·    gain a better understanding of what is distinctive about EAL learners in the early                 


·     have an increased awareness of the theoretical basis on which principles of best

      practice are based

·     understand the stages of second language acquisition

·     identify effective practical strategies to support EAL development

·     develop ways to foster strong home-school partnerships to ensure continuity for the child

·     SEND in EAL children
