Abstract

Aims:  In order for speech-language pathologists to work better together with CBR workers, there is a necessity to understand what they perceive as their training needs for people with communication disability (PWCD).

Method:  In 2013, a cross-sectional written survey was conducted with 421 Malaysian workers, using convenient sampling and a mixed-method approach. 

Results:  In-depth information on training needs from descriptive analysis of quantitative data and content analysis of qualitative data were obtained and discussed. 

Conclusion:  This study, although not generalizable, builds up the literature on worker training needs in developing countries, and would be of benefit for speech-language pathologists and worker trainers.
