Ethical Considerations for Working with CLD Populations * – new!

Presented by Kate Elahi, M.A., CCC-SLP (90 mins)

Within public schools, our culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students are expected to perform at the same level as their monolingual peers on English-based standards and their home language is often not represented. As SLPs, we must consider the biases that exist in our current system and how they may impact the referrals we receive and our students’ experiences. It is also critical for us to reflect on our own language experience and role within the education system.
