Wednesday Webinars 2012
Our Webinar Series is Set to kick off in January 2012!
Gain valuable knowledge to serve Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations
6% of Speech-Language Pathologists are bilingual (ASHA, 2002) while over 20% of households in the United States speak a language other than English. Understanding culture and the interaction between two languages increases the effectiveness of the services you provide.
