I speak Spanish, so I have an idea of how learning two languages impacts your learning. What really pushed me to do the program was that I wanted to have the background, and actual credentials, to be able to better meet the needs of bilingual students. So having all this information about preschool, typically developing kids, and children who may or may not have disordered speech, it’s very helpful to see different levels of skills and be able to compare them to the kids that I’ve seen in the past and the kids that I have now.
I am putting into practice everything I have learned regarding ethnographic interviews and dynamic assessment, in order to paint a true picture of a child. The program is well organized, interconnected, and interactive. From the first to the last day, I felt supported by professors and my mentor, who answered all my questions and provided feedback on my assignments.
