Many of you have asked questions about raising kids in a bi-lingual household and have also been interested in developmental milestones as they pertain to language acquisition. This week, we have Olga Chernomaz to the rescue!
Here is a bit about her:
Olga Chernomaz is the director of Dual Language Academy – An after school program, enrichment center, and preschool that enhances children’s education with bilingual immersion. Olga recieved her Bachelor’s of Science with a major in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology. She then recieved a Master of Science in Special Education, Early Childhood Education, and a Bilingual Extension.
After graduation, Olga began providing therapy to children with special needs and developmental delays. A year later, she began to evaluate youngsters to see if they were developing appropriately. After several years of experience, she created a curriculum to enhance children’s education with a bilingual approach.
Dual Language Academy uses this curriculum in each of their programs. Olga continues to administer evaluations for children throughout NYC. You can reach Olga directly at Olga.Chernomaz@duallanguageacademy.com or at 518-595-9352.
