Learn about our programs:

Certificate in Bilingual Speech-Language Pathology for Practitioners (for practicing clinicians)

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:

  1. To educate all clinicians with essential information on relevant topics in our field related to bilingual service delivery.
  2. To foster the development and growth of relationships within our clinical community.
  3. The improve the quality of service delivery to underrepresented communities.
