Welcome to Spanish for Speech Language Pathology.
Spanish for Speech Language Pathology provides functional and practical vocabulary instruction for speech-language pathology. Our programs aim to assist the many monolingual SLPs interested in learning or refining their Spanish language skills.
Working as a bilingual SLP, I've noted that some of my SLPs colleagues lacked confidence in their interactions with their Spanish-speaking caseload. While there may be a desire to learn Spanish, they do not have the time or energy it would take to turn their wishes into reality. I wanted to help. So, I took the information, experiences, and tips that I've learned as a second language learner and paired the skills into manageable, engaging programs for my fellow SLPs to explore.
"Speech language pathologists(SLPs) have a unique advantage to studying and learning a second language. SLPs teach others how to communicate, acquire vocabulary, and demonstrate understanding using language facilitation techniques. Together, we can put our knowledge into action. Together we can learn Spanish as a second language."

"For someone who hasn't taken Spanish since high school, the refreshers were vital! Amy has a great energy and was able to guide us through teaching each other and was always open to my many questions!! I love the resources I have now and look forward to future classes!"
"Great, educational course! I learned a lot and liked the variety of information presented, and that various settings and populations were considered."
"Small class size which provided the opportunity to practice my Spanish skills more frequently. The instructor was very knowledgeable and never hesitated to complete further research to provide us with the correct and most appropriate answers!"
It was a great way to learn some basic Spanish words and phrases that I can use during sessions. It has given me the tools to understand Spanish vocabulary said by students. I have used it as a starting point to my Spanish learning and I can’t wait to use it and learn more!
