SIG 14 Perspectives Vol. 19, No. 2, July 2012
This issue of Perspectives on Communication Disorders and Sciences in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Populations focuses on reading skills in children from Spanish-speaking backgrounds and health beliefs in culturally competent clinicians. The authors address: (a) the relationship between culture and health beliefs, (b) a reading acquisition program for Spanish-speaking English learners in Head Start, and (c) factors related to bilingual Spanish/English–speaking children’s reading comprehension.
You will be able to:
- discuss how consideration of health beliefs and cultural variables can help clinicians provide more effective services to those from culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) populations
- describe how speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can influence meaning-based and code-based skills that facilitate reading comprehension of academic texts
- describe factors that might identify potential literacy difficulties in preschool English language learners (ELLs)
