Description

For clinical neuropsychologists and speech pathologists, a bilingual client presents a difficult challenge. Most clinicians are either monolingual or are not fluent in non-English languages, making it difficult for them to pick up the sometimes subtle cues of various types of aphasias. Furthermore, tests and normative standards are based largely on white, middle class, educated populations, and have not been 'weighted' to account for cross-cultural differences.This is the first book on the market to survey the bilingual literature and features: evidence-based protocols for clinicians and rehabilitation professionals treating bilingual and culturally diverse clients; three main sections - Foundations, Diagnostics, and Treatment; an overview of bilingual speech and language skills; identification of language disorders; and, specific strategies clinicians can use when working with bilingual clients.
