Audio 6.6 Voices from the Field: Irlanda Jimenez


Irlanda Jimenez

Irlanda Jimenez talks about the various ways practitioners can use visual supports to facilitate learning among young children who are dual language learners.  Irlanda empathizes the importance of providing concrete examples of things the child might have experience with—as well as creating that experience, if necessary--in order to facilitate the child’s participation in a given activity.  This clip is borrowed with permission from The IRIS Center.
