An excellent article from the ASHA Leader, What It Takes to Call Yourself a Bilingual Practitioner, written by Nathan Cornish, M.S., CCC-SLP. This article discusses some of the most important things to consider as a bilingual service provider.
“As the United States grows more linguistically diverse, so does the appeal of identifying oneself to clients as a “bilingual practitioner.” It’s a good way to help those with communication needs in more than one language identify you as a resource, and to serve minority-language communities better.”
Cornish provides detailed answer to some of the most common questions asked by emerging bilingual clinicians. This piece is well worth the read!
