Educazione linguistica e disturbi della comunicazione in bambini di origine bangladese
Uno studio di caso e alcune implicazioni glottodidattiche
In this paper I present a case study conducted between October 2018 and October 2019 involving Bengali children aged 4 to 6 with migration background who live in Venice. These children may have special educational needs, communication disorders or language acquisition delay because they neither speak Italian L2 fluently at school nor Bengali, their L1, at home. On the basis of neuropsychiatrists’ hypotheses, I investigate the quality and type of language input they receive at home and in different social contexts, as well as the external factors that can impact acquisition of both the L1 and L2.
