Texas School for the Deaf is proud to host the National American Sign Language and English Bilingual Consortium for Early Childhood Education's fourth summit. The theme of the Summit is Building Bilingual Partnerships: Home, School and Community.
The purpose of this Summit is to identify and evaluate the themes, terminologies and forms of discourse in early childhood education. Some issues will be discussed: bilingual acquisition, pedagogies, language and literacy, equity and diversity, and family and teacher education.
We hope to address many of the issues faced by professionals, especially those who are actively involved in the field of ASL/English Bilingual Education such as service providers, childcare providers, deaf mentors, early grade teachers, medical personnel, speech language specialists, audiologists as well as teacher education and staff development programs.
