This report addresses effective strategies to promote early math learning for dual language learners (DLLs) in educational settings and at home. The report begins with an overview of the importance of early math learning and math achievement among DLLs nationally and in California. Existing evidence of effective and promising practices for supporting DLLs' early math learning in school and for engaging their families in early math at home is examined. Two profiles of organizations exemplifying the lessons the authors identify for supporting DLLs' early math achievement are presented. This report highlights research, policy, and practice gaps and opportunities related to promoting early math for DLLs. Finally, the authors offer recommendations for opportunities for improving support for DLLs' early math achievement through research, policies, and practices.
