Bridging Communication Gaps: Language Access in the DD Community
For those who belong to linguistic and cultural minority groups, language access plays a fundamental role in ensuring the ability to communicate effectively and access support services in their preferred language. Accessing language support is a critical factor in a person’s overall well-being. Anthony will discuss the importance of language access in historically excluded and underserved communities and strategies to support them.
