Speech Audiometry for Linguistically Diverse Populations (On Demand Webinar) (PD102336)

Presenter(s): Lauren Calandruccio, PhD, CCC-A
Course Description

The likelihood of encountering multilingual individuals, non-English-speaking individuals, and non-native speakers of English in the clinic is becoming more common. As audiologists are working with linguistically diverse populations, they may find themselves asking, “How should I evaluate speech perception in my patients who are not monolingual speakers of English? Which speech materials should I use?” This webinar will review the current literature on multilingual and non-native speech perception and discuss approaches to best serve patients from diverse linguistic backgrounds.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Explain the challenges that non-native English speakers face when listening in noise
  • List suggested guidelines for working with multilingual patients

"I can use the information learned from this course in to help make recommendations and aid in my counseling with families of children who are bilingual with hearing loss."
