SCS 319 - Bilingualism and Speech-Language Disorders


This course offers an overview of bilingualism and bilingual language acquisition from a linguistic, sociolinguistic, and speech language pathology perspective. The course explores various aspects of bilingual behaviors, such as code switching and language mixing, in terms of their social functions within the bilingual community as well as in terms of neuro-linguistic organization in the individual speaker. The course will prepare speech-language pathology clinicians to work with bilingual children with language impairments, and it will help them acquire the tools to perform accurate language assessments on bilingual children avoiding all possible misdiagnosis.
