Culturally Responsive Practices in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences" is the only textbook to focus on cultural competence in the field of communication sciences and disorders. It is imperative for speech-language pathologists and audiologists to be aware of diverse aspects of globalization, how these aspects may affect service provision, their clients' lives, as well as their clients' relationships to service providers. The purpose of this text is to develop the skill of cultural competence.The text presents a conceptual framework to guide speech-language pathologists and audiologists towards cultural competence by becoming critically engaged users of culturally responsive and globally engaged practices. The text is focused on speech-language pathology and audiology, but also draws from theoretical frameworks in other disciplines for an inter-professional, transdisciplinary and macro practice perspective. This will help students build their own conceptual framework for providing culturally and linguistically responsive services, and to engage with others globally.Key features include: case studies to facilitate students' knowledge and skills regarding culturally and linguistically responsive practices; journal activities and discussion questions that challenge students to use critical and dialectical thinking; real-life activities that students can complete inside or outside the classroom; suggested readings from the current literature in cultural and linguistic responsiveness, cultural competence, and global engagement in order to build knowledge and skills, and to affect student attitudes; a PluralPlus companion website with supplementary resources for students and instructors. "Culturally Responsive Practices in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences" is intended for courses on cultural competence in speech-language pathology and audiology programs. It is also appropriate for general multicultural courses in speech-language pathology programs. Students in speech-language pathology programs are required to gain knowledge and skill competencies pertaining to culture, cultural competence, cultural bases of normal and impaired communication development, cultural correlates of various developmental and disordered categories, and cultural/linguistic backgrounds and influences of clients and their families. This textbook may also be used as supplemental material in language acquisition courses in communication sciences and disorders programs, and in special education courses that teach special education teachers about working with children who have communication disorders.
