Interpreting in Speech Pathology Settings (Translating and Interpreting in Healthcare Settings)



In this course, we will have a look at some of the many aspects of the work that Speech Pathologists may be involved in, including some that may involve working with interpreters. Speech Pathologists may work with interpreters in scenarios involving the assessment of children with suspected language delay, and with adults experiencing speech and/or language difficulties after a stroke. Interpreters working in this setting may be asked to provide metalinguistic commentary as to how something is said.
