CMDS672-19S1 (C) Semester One 2019

Spoken and Written Language Disorders in Educational Settings

15 points
18 Feb 2019 - 23 Jun 2019

Description

The goal of this course is to extend the proficiency of students in developmental language disorders by building on the knowledge gained in CMDS661 and CMDS665. This course extends prior learning in two key ways: 1) focuses on the nature of language impairment in older children and how that impairment impacts on social and academic outcomes; and 2) requires synthesis of previously learned concepts through application to an older population and educational context. This course introduces students to factors uniquely relevant to the New Zealand educational context, including cultural considerations in assessment and intervention, bilingual educational settings and relevant legislation and government initiatives.
