This item has expired, and will soon be unavailable for viewing

Mother Tongues is offering a new professional development opportunity for teachers and early years practitioners from across Ireland working with migrant children and families. Participants will join a community of practice focused on best practice in supporting multilingual children and their families to improve outcomes for migrant children, prevent educational disadvantage, potential misdiagnosis and social isolation. All members of this online community of practice will be able to access toolkits and videos on best practice and to learn from experts and other practitioners interested in this area.

The main topics discussed will be:

  • Supporting the linguistic development of newcomers
  • Making the classroom welcoming for children and families who are new to English
  • Assessing language development and language difficulties in children who are new to English
