The Mexican American population has increased over the past years and service delivery to this population has become an area of interest for professionals in the field of speech-language pathology. In this study, Mexican-American mothers’ perceptions of their child’s speech and language disorder and treatment services were identified via survey and a descriptive questionnaire that was conducted orally. The mothers completed a survey, which included a 1-7 Likert scale, regarding attitudes and opinions on their sense of responsibility, alternative methods of treatment, relationship with therapist, parental involvement, and child’s progress. The mothers were then interviewed by the researcher using a descriptive questionnaire. The results of the study revealed Mexican-American mothers had a positive perspective on speech language disorders and of the treatment their child was receiving at a pediatric rehabilitation center in South Texas.
