Increasing SLPs' Cultural Competence
DESCRIPTION:

In an ever expanding culturally diverse world, increasing our cultural competence is even more important now. Learn the evidence behind the why, what and how we can reduce our biases and strengthen cultural competence through interactive learning by listening to a podcast together, sharing experiences, and reviewing ASHA articles. Although this talk is geared towards SLPs, all are WELCOME as we serve as primary service providers in Early Intervention!
