Myths about teaching a child more than one language are plenty. Often parents are discouraged from raising a bilingual or multilingual child because they’re told it can lead to confusion and speech delays, or that they’ve missed the window of opportunity. During this 30 minute webinar, Caroline Erdos, Speech-Language Pathologist, will discuss the most common myths behind raising a bilingual child. Participants will be able to ask questions and chat with Caroline as she discusses myths and shares tips to raising a child to be bilingual.
