Multilingual parenting as a migrant in Ireland: Finding your way
12th October 2021, 8 pm
Are you raising your child bilingually as a migrant parent in Ireland?
Is it challenging for various reasons to find appropriate support when you need it?
In this interactive webinar for parents, Dr Carmen Kealy from the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre at NUI Galway will talk about her work on creating a better understanding of migrant parenting among support services. There will be an opportunity for parents to share their experiences on parenting and help-seeking in Ireland to inform a more effective support provision.
