Interpreters and Speech-Language Pathologists
To ensure positive outcomes for the clients, interpreters and Speech and Language Pathologists (SLP) need to successfully collaborate during the assessment and treatment sessions with individuals with communication or swallowing disorders.
In the first portion, interpreters will learn examples of common testing materials and strategies used by SLPs to assess clients of various disorders, and observe several demonstrations such as pre-session briefing and post-session debriefing by experienced SLP/interpreter teams in role-play using scenarios close to real-life sessions.
In the second portion of the workshop, interpreters will participate in small dynamic learning groups led by SLP/interpreter teams to discuss challenges and identify solutions that can be put into practice to best serve clients. Topics for discussion will include terminology and cultural differences that hamper communication, as well as challenges that are unique to medical and educational settings. The challenges and solutions identified in each small dynamic learning group will be presented to the entire workshop assembly.
