Perspectives on Communication Disorders and Sciences in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations, March 2000, Vol. 6, 1. doi:10.1044/cds6.1.1-a
The year 2000 is upon us. As a division, we would like to implement certain plans to set the tone for the coming years. At the ASHA Convention, the issue of specialty recognition was discussed. I brought forth this issue (in response to your requests) to the Steering Committee and to the general meeting. Specialty recognition for us will be a difficult process because we have to cover each disorder area as it relates to multicultural and multilingual issues (e.g., fluency and multiculturalism, language and multiculturalism). It was also discussed that some states, such as New York, are already requiring some form of recognition in order for speech-language pathologists to provide services to bilingual clients. There is no clear path to take on this issue. Hence, what we plan to do is to conduct a formal study, through a survey, in order to poll your opinions. Thank you to Adele Proctor for undertaking this effort.
