About

Overview

As speech-language pathologists care for more clients from culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) backgrounds, there is a growing need for strategies to provide successful and appropriate assessment and treatment. While no single source can cover every linguistic and cultural difference, this new text provides specific knowledge on the major cultural and linguistic groups an SLP may encounter, as well as best practices to assess and work effectively with any CLD student or adult. For practicing clinicians and speech-language pathology students alike, this is an excellent resource to help provide the most effective and appropriate services to all clients.
