SLP Program) the opportunity to demonstrate understanding of multicultural multilingual issues and their application in the assessment and treatment of children with cleft lip and palate to better prepare them for the workforce, contribute to meeting the requirements of American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA), and most importantly ensure that Hispanic children and other culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) children with CLP receive improved services to enable them to reach their maximum potential.
