Abstract

Developing cultural competence in interacting with people with aphasia representing varied racial, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds is an important goal for all clinical and research aphasiologists. Asian Indians are one of the largest and fastest-growing ethnic minority groups to migrate to the North America, and have a higher incidence of stroke than most other immigrant populations. In this primer, we summarize key aspects of multilingual concerns, culture and etiquette as well as means of addressing cultural and linguistic differences when working with Asian Indians with aphasia, especially first-generation immigrants. Background material, helpful pointers, and resources for aphasiologists are provided.
