Description

Students will learn to apply evidence-based practice and the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to differentially diagnosing the presence, extent, and nature of aphasia; and to planning their assessment approach; establishing suitable goals for intervention; and constructing appropriate management plans when working with clients with aphasia across the continuum of care.

Whakamahuki/Course Description

The overall goal of the course is to develop students’ ability to provide holistic evidence-based assessment and intervention for clients with aphasia, dementia, or traumatic brain injury and their whānau, across a continuum of care.

More specifically, students will learn to apply evidence-based knowledge and the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to differentially diagnose the presence of language and other communication problems; plan their assessment approach; establish suitable goals for intervention; and construct appropriate management plans when working with clients with aphasia, dementia and traumatic brain injury. Students will also learn about culturally responsive approaches to supporting clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds including Māori and Pasifika clients.
