Practitioners have a responsibility to support bilingual children’s language development. Children who speak two languages should be supported and able to access the same opportunities as their peers, however, this can be difficult if neither language spoken is English. A child who has little to no English-speaking skills can struggle to communicate, creating barriers to supporting the child.
