Bilingual Therapies Company History
Bilingual Therapies was formed by bilingual speech-language pathologists in 1997. Working in the public school system, our organization recognized the need to support the men and women who served our country’s growing multicultural population. Bilingual Therapies’ mission is to create a network of bilingual professionals who share the goal of providing caring, sensitive services to bilingual children and families.
From our beginnings, Bilingual Therapies has continuously strengthened our network, adding more people and creating new forums for sharing ideas, research, studies and support. In 2000, Bilingual Therapies made a commitment to continuing education, not only for our employees, but for bilingual service providers all over the world. We started an annual Bilingual Symposium designed to expand the knowledge-base of practicing professionals by sharing information on current research on bilingualism and its application to service provision.
Over the years, the ideas and enthusiasm of our staff and employees have blossomed. We began offering scholarships, creating partnerships with universities and developing educational opportunities for aspiring bilingual school service providers. Today, Bilingual Therapies is proud of its legacy as a ground-breaking resource for bilingual professionals to develop skills, commune with peers and grow their careers in a field they love.
