Cultural and Linguistic Competence Assessment for Disability Organizations

The National Center for Cultural Competence is pleased to announce its newest self-assessment instrument and guide.  We thank TASH and other partner organizations for providing resources, wise counsel, and enthusiasm  in the development and pilot test process. Please disseminate within your networks.

While there are many tools and instruments to assess organizational cultural and linguistic competence, few have been developed to address the cross-section of organizations concerned with disability. The Cultural and Linguistic Competence Assessment for Disability Organizations (CLCADO) was developed specifically for this purpose.

The CLCADO is intended to support organizations to (1) plan for and incorporate culturally and linguistically competent values, policies, structures, and practices in all aspects of their work; (2) enhance the quality of services, supports, and advocacy provided to diverse and underserved communities; (3) effect change in education, training, technical assistance, research, and public policy; and (4) advance cultural and linguistic competence as an essential approach to address racial and ethnic disparities and promote equity for people who experience disabilities and their families.
