There are many differences as well as similarities in speech-language pathology education and services around the globe, as is evidenced in reports by Hegde (1992), Navas and Pinho (1993), Schwartz and Most (1993), and Tuomi (1994) . Another source of information about speech-language-pathology education worldwide is An International Directory of Education for Speech-Language Pathologists (Speech Therapists/Logopedists/Orthophonistes) (Stewart, 1994). The Directory represents a collaborative effort by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics. The Directory describes professional education programs in 60 countries. However, it only includes descriptions of educational programs in six Latin-American locations: Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Mexico, Peru, and Puerto Rico. Our purpose is to acquaint readers with speech-language-pathology education and services in another Latin-American country, the Dominican Republic.
