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 disorders.
In the first portion, interpreters will learn about developmentally normal language acquisition and the roles of SLPs in the assessment and treatment of speech and language disorders. Age-appropriate strategies for working with clients will be reviewed, as will common terminology used in the field of communication disorders.
In the second portion of the workshop, interpreters and SLPs will work together in small groups to discuss case studies of adults and children with known or suspected speech/language disorders, such as an adult with a brain injury or a young child who is delayed in speaking. SLPs and interpreters will work together to identify special linguistic or cultural concerns in the scenario and brainstorm strategies on how to best work together and meet client needs. The final portion of the workshop will include sharing of recommendations with the entire group and a question-and-answer session with a panel of experienced interpreters and SLPs.
