Meeting Description:

policies which reflect bilingual situations when planning assessment, treatment
and placement of migrant children with specific language impairment (SLI) in
appropriate educational frameworks. These needs are best served by studying SLI
in the bilingual context. The main objective of this workshop is to bring
together researchers who study linguistic and cognitive abilities of bilingual
children, children with SLI and bilingual children with SLI across different
migrant communities to discuss the linguistic and cognitive nature of bilingual
