How Language Learning is for All:

  • Students with various exceptionalities may benefit from learning a new language.
  • Learning two languages may not necessarily cause additional delay in terms of language development for students with special education needs.
  • The language-learning challenges faced by children with exceptionalities are often not significantly different from those of typically developing children.
  • Interventions used to teach second languages to students with exceptionalities may also benefit typically developing children.

The above statements come from the Literature on the Impact of Second-Language Learning (2017).
