The Hispanic-Latino population is the fastest-growing group in Texas and the country exhibiting great diversity in language, ethnicity and race. Many individuals speak Spanish, English or a combination of both.

Despite similar needs for speech, language, hearing and swallowing services as other backgrounds, the linguistic diversity presents a unique challenge for assessment and treatment of communication disorders. Meeting these needs requires speech-language pathologists fluent in Spanish with advanced training.

The EBSLP track was established in the late 1970s and was the first federally funded bilingual SLP training in the U.S.

Since 1982, over 100 professionals have graduated from our program, contributing to successful careers in speech-language pathology and serving diverse communities.
