This issue of Perspectives focuses on the development of clinical competence when dealing with cultural diversity. In particular, the contributors’ objective was to identify cultural issues across the lifespan that may be of importance to practitioners. The United States is becoming increasingly more diverse, and it is likely that clinicians will be seeing clients whose cultural and linguistic backgrounds are different from their own. It is important to understand how these differing backgrounds may affect assessment and treatment of communication disorders.
The first article, entitled Why is Yogurt Good for You?, was written by the ASHA Multicultural Issues Board. It was expressly written for the Special Interest Divisions to stimulate discussion about issues related to diversity.
