Hanen e-seminar review and discount code
When he was 3, his mother was advised to speak English only as learning two languages might confuse him and further compound his language difficulties.
This true story (and not the only one of its kind) happened many years ago. As a bilingual speech pathologist, I can attest that this advice, thankfully, is no longer the norm and that children with a language delay can learn two languages. Does that seem a bit counter-intuitive to you? As a professional, if you are going to encourage parents to raise their child bilingual in the presence of a language delay, you need solid evidence to back up your recommendations. Enter Hanen’s e-seminar: Boosting bilingual environments for young children: what the research says, a two-hour presentation for speech pathologists, students and professionals who work with children. I was asked to review this e-seminar and I just had to say yes. What’s not to love about on-demand online learning: get comfortable in your own space, pour yourself a cup of tea, get ready to take notes… At the end of this blog, you will find an access code to obtain a 40 % discount on this seminar. Read on to know what you’ll find in this seminar:
In Australia, about 250 different languages are represented. It makes sense to be aware of linguistic and cultural diversity and to support children who learn English as a Second Language.

Thank you to the Hanen Centre for giving me access to this e-seminar. I do not stand to receive any financial benefit from this post and the opinions are all mine.
