Self-Assessment for Cultural Competence

Demographic and caseload changes related to culturally/linguistically diverse (CLD) populations require cultural competence in order to provide clinically competent services. ASHA resources were developed to help you reflect on your current level of cultural competence to increase and improve service delivery.

Cultural Competence Checklists

A series of checklists were developed to heighten your awareness of providing services to CLD populations. There are no answer keys and no "right" answers.

Cultural Competence Awareness Tool

An interactive web-based tool was designed to help you evaluate your cultural competence. Percentages and scores are provided in each subtest in order to help you determine your level of knowledge of specific topics. They should not be used as absolutes. They should be used to determine which areas may need some further development.

NOTE: Please use your ASHA web username and password.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send a message to multicultural@asha.org.
