  • Given the demographic changes currently taking place in the United States, speech-language pathologists increasingly are being asked to provide speech and language services to bilingual speakers. The acquisition of more than one language presents unique challenges to speech-language pathologists in the assessment of and intervention for phonological disorders. This paper provides speech-language pathologists information about common and uncommon phonological patterns across a variety of languages, the influence of the sound patterns of one language on another, and guidelines for assessment and intervention.
