The Effect of Cultural Influences upon Classroom Behavior

Differentiating language differences from language disorders is one of the biggest challenges facing the public school speech pathologist and his/her team. This presentation will discuss the ten cross- cultural continuums (Callis-Buckley) as they apply to our observations of behavior in the mainstream U.S. classroom. The presenter will include examples from real life assignments in the public school setting.
