Cultural Adaptation + Translation of Honeycomb Speech Therapy Materials

The Process:

It’s important that all clients in speech therapy have access to person-centered therapy approaches in their language, and include culturally relevant factors. In thinking about making Honeycomb Speech Therapy materials available in other languages, we have decided to follow a heuristic framework as a best practice – this emphasizes cultural adaptation. If you would like to learn about this process, please refer to:
