Description

Excerpt from Limited English Proficiency as a Barrier to Health and Social Services The basic issue to be examined through the study was the extent to which persons with limited grasp of the English lan guage gain or fail to gain access to health and social services as a consequence of the availability of cost-effective language services. The intent of the study was to determine the extent to which service providers adapted their outreach and serv ice protocols to meet the needs of clients who seek access to the services. It was assumed that alternative approaches had been adopted by various service provid ers and that, through the study, it would be possible to define and compare the relative costs and benefits of these alterna tive approaches in different types of serv ices and involving different language groups.
