Multicultural Populations: Assessment and Treatment Considerations for the Speech-Language Pathologist

# e36   Multicultural Populations: Assessment and Treatment Considerations for the Speech-Language Pathologist

by Ana Paula Mumy, MS, CCC-SLP

0.2 CEUs

$ 39.00

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that there are nearly 50.5 million individuals in the United States who speak a language other than English at home. SLPs can no longer use merely the English language and America's cultural standards to assess the communication competency of those from other language and cultural backgrounds. Written by a trilingual SLP, this online course is designed to enable SLPs to incorporate a new working knowledge as it relates to bilingualism in the assessment and treatment of multicultural populations. The material presented will allow participants to make appropriate placement and therapy decisions with greater confidence and expertise. Offered for 0.20 SLP CEUs – 2.0 Contact Hours. Discussed will be:

  • How cultural differences impact communication
  • Assessing cultural language differences vs. actual language disorders
  • List of phonologic, grammatical, and pragmatic differences between English and other highly encountered languages & cultures
  • The use of interpreters and translators in assessment and intervention
  • Obtaining comprehensive and reliable data for decision making
  • Review of differences in first and second speech/language acquisition
  • A proper referral process for bilingual children
  • Developing appropriate intervention goals and determining optimal modes of service delivery
  • Differences when working with bilingual children compared to adults

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: Text — including examples, linked resource materials, and references.

  1. Define bilingualism as it relates to speech-language pathology.
  2. Explain various phenomena that occur.
  3. Describe a good referral process.
  4. Explain the use of interpreters and translators in assessment and intervention.
  5. Describe how to obtain comprehensive and reliable data for decision-making.
  6. Examine cultural differences as they impact communication.
  7. Review differences in first and second speech/language acquisition.
  8. List phonologic, grammatical, and pragmatic differences between English and other highly encountered languages & cultures.
  9. Establish how to determine acceptable differences that do not constitute a disorder.
  10. Discuss how to develop appropriate intervention goals and determine optimal modes of service delivery.
  11. Explain differences when working with bilingual adults compared to children. 

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order to
