SLPPG 508: Culture and Communication

Credits 1.0
Communication is shaped within a cultural context. Children understand and produce the language system to which they are exposed, and many learn multiple languages simultaneously. People routinely find themselves in the position of needing to learn a non-native language. This course will address the challenges of multilingualism or second language learning, and will review best practices in assessing and treating individuals who do not use English as their primary language.
