SIG 14 Perspectives Vol. 19, No. 3, December 2012
This issue of Perspectives focuses on clinicians’ use of technology when addressing the health and communication needs of culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) populations. The authors discuss (a) the application of a variety of technologies to practice with CLD populations, (b) telepractice between an SLP and a Vietnamese-speaking mother and child, and (c) African American mothers’ perceptions of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) use with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders.
You will be able to:
- describe how several different types of technology can be used to improve access to care for CLD populations
- discuss how telepractice can enhance treatment of bilingual clients, as well as the challenges technology might present
- discuss the clinical implications of African American mothers’ perceptions of AAC use with their children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders
