Supporting monolingual speech pathologists' assessment of multilingual children

During 2011 I am very fortunate to be working with Rebekah Lockart, a masters student in the speech pathology program at Macquarie University. Her thesis is titled: "Factors that enhance Australian speech-language pathologists’ assessment of the speech of Cantonese-speaking children".
Rebekah and I will be working on the protocols and procedures for her research over the next few weeks. We are grateful for advice about Cantonese from Dr Carol To (Hong Kong University) and Dr Mun Yee Lai (Charles Sturt University).
