In this episode, Michelle is joined by Rabab Rangwala, M.S., CCC-SLP & Kinnari Satra, M.S., CCC-SLP, cohosts of the “Made in India SLP” Podcast! Rabab and Kinnari share experiences and evidence for improving cultural competency when completing assessments and treatments for individuals with both language and swallowing disorders…even including details on how to create a dynamic and authentic assessment for data collection and report writing! The ladies then share strategies for how to make teletherapy more inclusive for the children and their families that we work with…specifically targeting the early intervention and school-aged children. It’s a fabulous day when two podcasts collide to offer creative solutions for improving the cultural competency of our professional skills! Enjoy the episode and be sure to check out “Made in India SLP” too!
