Bilingual Children and Misdiagnoses

Original Post: March 12, 2021

Hello everyone!

It’s another FUNetic Friday!

Topic: Lack of understanding and knowledge when assessing bilingual children.

It is important to remember that we are all diverse, even if we speak a shared language! This post shared by Mrs Speechie P acknowledges the reasons why bilingual children are twice as likely to get misdiagnosed with speech disorders. I believe it is important to shine light on areas that need more attention and more understanding, such as this, and hopefully we can move towards improvement for these areas. Thank you Teresita for sharing this post with us!
