It is estimated by the U.S. Bureau of the Census (1990)  that a minimum of 25 million people in this country are bilingual, speaking Spanish, an Asian or Pacific Island language, or “other” language in addition to English. It is predicted by some futurists that by the year 2010 the entire Western hemisphere will be predominantly bilingual (Wolf, 1994).

The purpose of this article is to highlight relevant issues for the bilingual speech-language pathologist to consider as she/he interacts with bilingual adults presenting with neurogenic communication disorders.
