This resource guide introduces the WIDA E-ELD Standards and Framework to practitioners, professionals, and parents.

The purpose of the E-SLD Standards is to provide a developmentally sound framework for supporting and instructing emergent bilinguals, ages 2.5-5.5.

The E-SLD Standards Framework supports and facilitates the language development of emergent bilinguals through developmentally appropriate, standards-based content from preschool through Grade 12.
