SLPs are working with an increasing number of children and families who identify as bilingual, multilingual, or dual language learners (DLLs). Researchers are exploring strategies that are most effective for treating DLLs with language disorders and are also evaluating cultural differences related to family expectations in order to improve the validity of interventions. This journal self-study explores how family expectations can impact the effectiveness of interventions, how expectations may vary across cultures, and what SLP interventions are considered evidence-based when working with DLLs and culturally and linguistically diverse families. These articles are from a two-part forum – Innovations in Clinical Practice for Dual Language Learners – published in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology.

  • Identify evidence-based strategies for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing and multilingual
