Learn about our programs:
The Language Diversity Initiative was developed as part of our certificate programs in bilingual speech-language pathology in the department of Hearing & Speech Sciences at the University of Maryland, College Park. This project is intended to provide a means of engagement, discussion, and sharing of information among our community of clinicians who work with clients from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. As a community of service providers, we are equally as responsible for quality service delivery as we are for inter-professional education and advocacy. The goals that we set out to achieve are:
- To educate all clinicians with essential information on relevant topics in our field related to bilingual service delivery.
- To foster the development and growth of relationships within our clinical community.
- The improve the quality of service delivery to underrepresented communities.
