Welcome to Plural Publishing's companion website, intended to enhance your use of the text Culturally Responsive Practices in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences by Yvette D. Hyter and Marlene B. Salas-Provance.
About the Book
Culturally Responsive Practices in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences is the only textbook that provides an innovative perspective 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 their own knowledge, strengths and biases, service provision, their clients' lives, as well as their clients' relationships to service providers. The purpose of this text is to facilitate the creation of knowledge, and the development of attitudes and skills that lead to culturally responsive practices.
