Providing Culturally Sensitive and Linguistically Appropriate Services: An Insider Construct

This article is written by an Aboriginal speech-language pathologist to provide an insider perspective on assessment and intervention practices relevant to Aboriginal communities, in particular the Ojibway-speaking Anishinaabe people of the Great Lakes region of Ontario. The author presents information about dialect differences in these communities and describes a therapeutic approach for working with children who speak a First Nations English Dialect (FNED). Culturally sensitive practices are also outlined with specific suggestions for appropriate service delivery to this population.
