If you are a bilingual clinician, your services may be in increasing demand. Consider including your bilingual abilities in your listing in ASHA’s ProFind referral service, the directory of more than 15,000 ASHA-certified audiologists and speech-language pathologists who are accepting referrals.
There are many advantages to identifying as a bilingual service provider:
  • Increased marketability with a distinct competitive advantage.

  • Serving clients/patients who may otherwise have challenges accessing appropriate service.

  • Potential for increased earnings.

Identifying as a bilingual service provider also indicates to employers and potential clients that you are uniquely qualified to help underserved communities, serve as a community resource, and provide care to clients in their native language.
