Identifying Developmental Language Disorder in Linguistically Diverse Schools
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Although clinicians have long understood the risks of misidentifying an English learner or nonmainstream dialect speaker with language impairment, research to date has lacked a more nuanced view of assessment within diverse populations. Specifically, practitioners need the knowledge and tools to diagnose “disorder within difference,” a concept that is introduced and then exemplified in this journal self-study course, based on a Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools clinical forum. The authors of the articles examine a variety of assessment and screening tools used with children of varying linguistic backgrounds, including speakers of rural southern dialects, speakers of African American English, and Spanish-English bilingual children.

Transgender Voice and Beyond: Voice and Communication Training for Gender Expression
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Voice modification services for transgender individuals or those with gender-diverse identities is an emerging area of practice for SLPs.

This webinar will explain the cultural and clinical factors involved in gender-based voice and communication services and describe inclusive practices to support individuals with unique perspectives and concerns. The presenters will share research and clinical cases to illustrate best practice standards for assessment and intervention. Rationales for these standards are based on research regarding communication factors that influence gender attribution by others, factors that influence speakers’ own perception and satisfaction with their voice, and effects of treatment.

Collaboration With Interpreters: Securing Positive Outcomes
Format(s): Streaming Video
Collaborating with interpreters is often an important step when working with individuals who speak a language other than English. Although bilingual SLPs and audiologists may be familiar with an individual’s native language, a skilled interpreter may be helpful to assist during the evaluation process. There is almost no research on collaborating with interpreters in audiology and speech-language pathology, and most professionals have not been adequately trained to collaborate with an interpreter. In this session, Henriette Langdon offers SLPs and audiologists helpful, evidence-based strategies for working with interpreters, based on research that has been conducted in other fields, including medicine and law, as well as across disciplines at international conferences. You will walk away with practical strategies to ensure that your time with clients who require interpreters is used effectively.
Practical Assessment and Treatment Strategies for English Language Learners With Language Impairments
Format(s): Streaming Video
Many SLPs face the challenge of assessing and evaluating English language learners (ELLs) whose primary language they do not know in order to ascertain whether students are manifesting a language difference or a language impairment. There are no formal tests to administer to ELLs who speak a language such as Vietnamese, Tagalog, or Russian, but SLPs must find a way to evaluate the student in a legal, nonbiased manner. In this session, Celeste Roseberry-McKibbin provides practical tools that SLPs can use with ELLs ages 3-18 from any language background. The course also touches on intervention, specifically language of intervention and practical strategies for increasing the vocabulary skills of ELLs with language impairments.

Language Assessment of Bilingual Children: Evidence and Implications
Format(s): Streaming Video

Serving Clients From Diverse Backgrounds: Speech-Language Difference vs. Disorder
Format(s): Streaming Video
Currently, more than a fifth of school-age children speak a language other than English at home, and the population of English language learners will continue to grow. SLPs need to conduct assessments that will determine whether speech-language production errors are indicative of a disorder or the result of the normal process of second language acquisition. We must then provide treatment that supports the needs of diverse learners. This course will provide an easy-to-use framework to distinguish speech-language disorders from speech-language differences as well as introduce practical interventions SLPs can use immediately to support English language learners.
Professional Diversity: How Your Unique Perspective Can Improve Clinical Decision-Making
Format(s): Streaming Video
What are your proudest professional accomplishments? Which clients have you affected most significantly? What distinguishing personal characteristics allow you to make a difference for your clients? Each of us has a unique clinical perspective – informed by our individual background – that can be the critical factor in solving client needs. When we collaborate with colleagues and other professionals, we use diverse perspectives to ensure the best outcomes. The more diversity of backgrounds we have within the professions, the abler we are to serve an increasingly diverse population – and the better our collective clinical decision-making can be. This course will address how the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of SLPs and audiologists can enhance problem-solving and service provision. The course will also discuss the value of ongoing self-assessment and continuous expansion of our own diversity and cultural knowledge.
