Whitaker, Joseph H.; Prieto, Alfonso G.
Focus on Exceptional Children, v21 n5 p1-10 Jan 1989
A review of studies investigating the effects of bilingualism on the cognitive and academic performance of language-minority students indicates both negative and positive effects. Compared with monolingual students, differences favoring bilingual students are found in studies utilizing Piagetian measures, which are not heavily language dependent. Educational considerations are discussed. (JW)
