Global Initiatives: Considerations for Best Practice (WEBS1721705)

Course Description


These Perspectives (SIG 17) articles discuss different aspects of international practice, including work with immigrant and refugee families. Baigorri, Crowley, and Bukari provide a service delivery model for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and professionals working in low-and middle-income countries. Chakraborty, Schwarz, and Vaughan discuss a major consideration for ASHA to cultivate cultural sensitivity and competence in its largely female (95.30%), monolingual (93.46%) and white (92.10%) workforce. Chu et al., discuss the challenges that SLPs face when providing speech and language therapy in Malaysia and issues that need to be addressed for continued growth of this profession. Maldonado, Ashe, Bubar, and Chapman explore the experiences of monolingual, American, English-speaking SLPs and Clinical Fellows who worked with immigrant and refugee families within a preschool context.Staley et al., consider the literature on international student placements to contextualize and describe a 10-year relationship which enabled speech language pathology students in their final year of study at a Canadian university to complete a 10-week clinical placement with a non-governmental organization in Kenya.
