In this course students evaluate the relative impact of biological, social, cultural, and cognitive factors on speech and language acquisition and critically evaluate theories proposed to account for stages of development. Students compare and contrast techniques of clinical linguistic analysis to equip them to analyse a speech-language sample collected for a case study in order to draw conclusions about the stage of speech/language development reflected by the data.
