With the advent of broader scientific and socio-educational motivations across the globe, cross-cultural and cross-linguistic inspirations are increasingly prevalent in the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology. This essay presents a sketch of a multilingual community, India. An overview of the general educational structure and the special education system has been presented to acknowledge the sensitivity of the government and non-government sectors towards multiple languages. Finally, an attempt has been made to present some socio-linguistic questions that are inherently tied to potential globalization of the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology.
