Together Series

The TOGETHER (Targeting Our Goals for Equitable Treatment in Healthcare, Education and Research) Series’ mission is to address the need for culturally responsive care in health professions and research to better serve underserved and marginalized populations.

The virtual series does this by creating a platform for diverse interdisciplinary speakers to present on topics relevant to addressing inequities in health. These presentations are conducted live to facilitate discussion then will be recorded, archived, and shared here.

Live webinars held Mondays from 5:30-6:30 PM CST.

In the U.S. one in five children has exposure to another language in their home or community. As such, patterns of language acquisition can be highly variable. An educational challenge in this population how to distinguish between typical and atypical performance in L1 and L2 use. Comparison to of bilingual children’s language to monolinguals may contribute to high rates of misidentification of DLD. On the other hand, assumptions of a “normal” bilingual delay may contribute to documented delays in identification and intervention. In this talk I will present challenges for assessment of bilingual children and provide emerging solutions to improve our clinical assessment practices.
