Standard English Difficulties and Helpful Intervention Strategies for Aboriginal Students

This paper provides a reflective account of difficulties and differences that may cause Aboriginal Canadian students to struggle with Standard English. Special considerations for Aboriginal students and strategies for intervention are described. These clinical reflections are based on twenty years of cultural and working experience as an Aboriginal Speech-Language Pathologist in Central Vancouver Island, B.C., as well as personal observations and interactions with Aboriginal people from across Canada.
