In this article, researchers focus on disentangling the effects of bilingualism and dyslexia in tasks assessing phonological abilities of monolingual and bilingual, impaired/non-impaired children regarding morphological abilities, grammatical abilities and implicit learning. Results suggest that bilingualism, far from being a disadvantage, can offer linguistic and cognitive benefits that extend also to impaired children. Building on these results, researchers indicate some best practices and recommendations for parents, educators and health professionals that deal with children suffering from specific communicative impairments.
