Speech pathology is unlike any other interpreting domain. Speech and language assessments can place considerable linguistic and ethical demands on interpreters as speech pathologists are interested not only in what the patients are saying but also how they are saying it. They may ask the interpreter to describe the patient’s speech in order to identify deviations from linguistic norms and diagnose a speech or language impairment (Clark, 1998; Gentile, Ozolins & Vasilikakos, 1996; Clark & Hand, 2007).
This webinar aims to provide interpreters with an overview of adult speech pathology with an emphasis on aphasia diagnosis and treatment as well as interpreting practice challenges and strategies.
