Clinicians who work with children and adolescents must recognize their roles and responsibilities in providing culturally competent intervention and translate that knowledge into practice. One way to achieve a high level of cultural responsiveness is by using multicultural treatment materials. This session will aid SLPs in selecting and creating intervention materials that reflect diversity and multiculturalism. The presenter will discuss methods to infuse multicultural topics and cultural sensitivity into intervention materials.
