The Bilingualism Matters Milan branch aims at providing information to parents and teachers about all forms of bilingualism. The areas of expertise of this branch are: bimodal education (speech and sign language) in theory and practice; developmental language disorders in bilingual children and children with Italian as an additional language; bilingual literacy and learning to read in two languages. The branch works closely with schools and the education system regarding language acquisition in deaf children and in immigrant children; it also aims at facilitating discussion among practitioners on specific language disorders in immigrant children.
