Hello everyone!

I found this very interesting article that I would like to share with you.

Introducing our "special" children to a different language (like we do in our expatCountries) could be confusing for them. Some specialists suggest to use only one language with them, but in this article there are very good reasons to mantain also the mother tongue.

If you like, we can share our thoughts on it.

Thanks Elenaexpat :flowers: for sharing this article. I'm going to read it right now.

In my experiance I am very pleased to see that my special needs daughter :wub: can understand both languages (italian and english) although she is not able to speak yet. I find it amusing! :sorcerer: :sorcerer:
