This section aims to ensure that personal factors and linguistic diversity are accommodated throughout the rehabilitation journey. Follow the links for best practice statements developed in accordance with the most up-to-date research and expert opinion.
In this section you will find best practice statements, resources and information that focuses on:
- Culturally and linguistic diverse populations - including the impact of cultural and linguistic factors on service delivery and modifying assessment and intervention for CALD populations.
- Working with people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples constitute one of the many culturally and linguistically diverse groups within Australia, and indeed include diversity of its own within this ethnic ‘category.’ Their status as the First Australians and their particularly unique socio-political background and currently poor health outcomes require a critically different approach to aphasia management.
