Summary:

All speech-language pathology and audiology professionals, whether working in a school, private practice or medical facility in any geographical region of the country, will face more and more situations where they will have to deal with patients who are commonly termed limited English proficient or LEP. While the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) has distinct mandates regarding bilingual competencies in differential diagnostic testing, it is equally important that all practitioners increase intercultural competence to deal with families, caregivers and professional peers.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to improve communication professionals’ ability to care for patients who have limited English proficiency (LEP). After you study the information presented here, you will be able to —
  • Discuss the need for enhanced communication skills across language barriers.
  • Describe strategies for improving communication with LEP individuals and those of diverse cultural backgrounds.
  • Describe strategies for effective use of interpreters.

The information provided is especially important to areas where cultural diversion is only now occurring.These rules are not commonly known in the educational system due to a little or no experience with different cultures.
