Soliant Health’s Bilingual Therapies Division Announces 10th Annual Bilingual Symposium

Symposium For Bilingual & Monolingual Speech - Language Pathologists To Be Held July 15-17, 2010 In Las Vegas, NV

Atlanta, GA (May 11, 2010) Soliant Health, the specialty healthcare staffing division of Adecco Group, today announced that its Bilingual Therapies unit will host its 10th annual symposium for practicing bilingual and monolingual speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 15-17, 2010. This year’s conference marks the 10th anniversary of this unique symposium that explores how bilingual and monolingual SLPs can better serve the needs of bilingual children.

The Bilingual Symposium is the only American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) approved CE provider conference of its kind, dedicated to helping speech-language pathologists deal with language diversity in schools. Through this symposium, attendees are able to earn up to 1.0 (10 hours) Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) while participating in multiple sessions exploring topics including:

  • Measures and methods that can help identify bilingual children with language disorders
  • Best practices for ELL/ESL students with language and learning disabilities
  • Collaboration techniques for schools with bilingual populations
  • Methods of overcoming limited development resources for bilingual children

“With over 47 million children and adults in the United States speaking a language other than English at home, it’s essential that SLPs uncover new means and methods of reaching this population,” said David Alexander, president of Soliant Health. “Last year’s symposium was highly successful, and this year’s event will continue to provide an opportunity for the foremost professionals and experts in bilingual education to share innovative ways that SLPs can reach children in their communities, and build upon their skills.”

Bilingual Therapies is a leading provider of bilingual speech-language pathology, offering bilingual speech therapists to schools in diverse communities across North America. For more information about the company and the symposium, visit: http://symposium.bilingualtherapies.com.
