2019 Bilingual Symposium for Service Providers with Bilingual Populations
Bilingual service providers don’t always have many options for continuing education opportunities that focus on bilingual populations. This was a concern for us at Bilingual Therapies, as we predominately work with bilingual professionals, so we did something about it…
“Since 2001 we have been organizing this unique symposium that brings together researchers and practitioners to provide us with the most current resources for bilingual assessment and intervention.”
Are you a speech pathologist, audiologist, school psychologist, or student who supports or would like to serve bilingual clients? Are ready to earn CEUs in a stunning location where you can dip into the ocean after your sessions? Whether you want to explore the historic and ecological wonders or indulge in the sounds and tastes of the island, this location has it all! Start planning your trip to the 2019 Bilingual Symposium today.
Our Symposium will be held from June 20-22, 2019 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Our 3-day event hosted in this exciting city is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn new skills for evaluating and supporting your bilingual clients and network with other service providers from around the country. This year our symposium presenters will walk you through two case studies that will highlight how professionals collaborate across disciplines to best assess and create intervention goals for culturally and linguistically diverse children.
