The likelihood of encountering multilingual individuals, non-English-speaking individuals, and non-native speakers of English in the clinic is becoming more common. As audiologists are working with linguistically diverse populations, they may find themselves asking, “How should I evaluate speech perception in my patients who are not monolingual speakers of English? Which speech materials should I use?” This webinar will review the current literature on multilingual and non-native speech perception and discuss approaches to best serve patients from diverse linguistic backgrounds.
You will be able
- Explain the challenges that non-native English speakers face when listening in noise
- List suggested guidelines for working with multilingual patients
