  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students: Best Practice for Cognitive Assessments

    Presenter: Alexander Quiros, PhD

    This 2-hour introductory workshop will cover basic information all psychologists should know about bilingual assessments: proper selection of bilingual assessment, language disorders vs. language differences, use of an interpreter, and important language and cultural issues that should be considered when working with bilingual clients. Although many of the examples will draw from work with Spanish-English bilinguals, the information shared during this presentation applies to all multi-lingual individuals.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Learn about issues unique to cognitive and language development in bilingual individuals with a focus on children.
    2. Learn proper use of assessment tools and results of bilingual individuals.
    3. Learn about assessment tools available in languages other than English.
