Over the last decade, we have been focusing on the analyses of narratives of Spanish-English bilinguals for research and clinical practice. Collaboration between researchers from Temple University and the University of Wisconsin at Madison has resulted in SALT (Systematic Analysis of Language Transcripts) transcription-entry and coding developments designed specifically for Spanish and Spanish-English language sample analyses. This article is intended to provide clinicians with a brief overview of the protocol both authors have used to assess narratives of Spanish-English bilinguals in clinical settings and for research purposes. It is important to note that there are other collaborative efforts to develop SALT transcription-entry and coding developments designed for languages other than Spanish or English (Miller & Acarlar, 2006).
