In the United States, approximately 7% to 10% of children are raised in bilingual households. Despite inherent advantages to bilingualism, some bilingual children experience a significant lag in academic success relative to other groups. Bridging the fields of cognitive psychology and education, this volume presents research-based knowledge on language acquisition and learning to leverage the strengths and achievements of bilingual children. By understanding the neurocognitive mechanisms of the bilingual brain and the need for socioculturally inclusive pedagogy, educational researchers and practitioners can better serve this rapidly growing population.
