As the demographics on our caseloads continue to diversify, there is an ever-widening gap between workplace demands and the cultural-linguistic backgrounds, interests, and needs of our clients. This presentation will include discussion on content around various inequities that could impact the assessment and treatment processes for speech-language pathologists and audiologists. We will also address what microaggressions are and how it occurs in the communication disorders professions. Several different types of microaggressions occur from micro-assaults to micro-invalidation. This presentation will highlight some of the microaggressions that occur in our profession at various levels that serve as obstacles for the profession and how they impact our connections with our colleagues and clients within educational and clinical settings. Transformation requires a shift in perspective, it also involves appreciating the diversity of our clients. This session will focus on how to identify inequities, microaggressions, culturally responsive assessment, treatment from a cultural humility lens, and how to become advocates for equity.
