Self-Reported Confidence and Knowledge in Working With CLD Populations and Considerations for Assessment in Individuals Who Speak Languages Other Than English (WEBS1421420)

Course Description

The theme for this SIG 14 activity is self-reported confidence and knowledge between multilingual and monolingual speech-language pathologists in working with culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) individuals and assessment considerations when working with individuals who speak a language other than English. Topics include (a) examining differences between self-reported confidence and knowledge in multilingual and monolingual speech language pathologists; (b) nonword repetition in assessment; and (c) sound sequencing characteristics in words of children who speak German.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • summarize possible confidence-related implications of being a multilingual versus monolingual speech-language pathologist working with clients who are culturally and linguistically diverse
  • describe the various characteristics of nonword repetition tasks including aspects of stimuli and scoring methods
  • identify German consonants for intervention planning for German-speaking children or German–English bilingual populations
