In this column, we look at one university’s approach to the changing trends in training of professionals, particularly as applies to rural areas and culturally diverse populations.
New Mexico has always had a shortage of personnel to provide services to culturally and communicatively diverse people with communication disorders. Rather than develop a curriculum to train speech-language pathology assistants, New Mexico State University, a land grant institution, has had as its mission the training of speech-language pathologists and audiologists within three specific populations: persons previously educated and employed in related fields working within rural settings, such as regular and special education teachers; persons with bachelor’s degrees who currently provide services in the public schools; and persons from bilingual and/or from culturally diverse populations. We believe that such persons will be the most likely to seek or maintain employment in local public schools and can offer expertise most needed by New Mexico’s citizens.
