Description

In this course, students undertake advanced study with a focus on the management of more complex and multifaceted cases. Topics include sourcing and evaluating evidence to support the management of clients for whom there is more than one key factor influencing their management (e.g. presence of more than one communication disorder, psychosocial factors, bilingualism and culturally and linguistically diverse background) and for clients in specialist areas of speech-language therapy (e.g., neurodevelopmental disorders, cognitive communication disorders). Students explore research, client, and practitioner evidence to assess and differentially diagnose the presence, extent, and nature of the communication disorder, and to establish appropriate intervention plans.
