Summary
"The volume consists of 10 chapters. Chapter 1 frames the rest of the book by providing an overview of the complex issues that influence the needs of bilingual children, particularly in a country such as the United States. Chapters 2 through 4 discuss cross-language transfer--that is, how the structure of one's native language may (or may not) affect second language acquisition, as well as the biological bases of normative and aberrant language development. These are critical points because a bilingual child's second language acquisition process is informed by prior language learning and neuropsychological processes, all of which can be affected by environmental factors. Beginning with Chapter 5 and continuing through Chapter 10, specific types of assessment are addressed. This section includes chapters addressing the use of norm-referenced measures in bilingual assessment, the use of response to intervention techniques, and social-emotional evaluation in a bilingual-bicultural context. Assessment of acculturation factors is discussed as well. Chapters 9 and 10 review data specific to key areas of learning that may be affected by second language acquisition processes: reading and writing. Finally, Chapter 11 considers the special case of refugee children whose uniquely significant experiences, in addition to requiring specialized consideration in the assessment process, provide an example of the complex interplay between biology, experience, and culture"--Introduction.
