Summary: This course explores factors that diminish the cognitive capacity of communication sciences and disorders (CSD) students, including poverty, racism, and discrimination based on socially marginalized identities, including disability. The COVID-19 pandemic and social unrest have created a daily reality of uncertainty, taking up a lot of bandwidth. Although these issues affect everyone in some way, they impact marginalized groups with greater severity. In this course, the speakers share ideas for the classroom and clinical environments to provide instructors and clinical supervisors with practical strategies to help students recover the bandwidth they need to learn and thrive. Speakers discuss the clinical implications of welcoming a diverse group of students into CSD programs and ways to support them. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 10: Issues in Higher Education.
