Welcome to MultiCSD! This site summarizes expert information for clinical use by SLPs when serving individuals from diverse language & cultural backgrounds.

We've just added 10 new Spanish Podcasts for the SLP!  


Multicsd was developed at Portland State University in the Speech & Hearing Sciences Department - - by Dr. Christina Gildersleeve-Neumann and 100+ graduate students in the Multicultural Topics in CSD course. It was redesigned and updated by Stephanie Rivera, Jenna Geery, and Jessica Jensen in 2015. While we hope our summaries are helpful, please review our extensive references for in-depth information. Note that the only updates are to the Spanish Podcasts for the SLP.

Contact Dr. Gildersleeve-Neumann at with questions.
