This is a clinical placement unit that builds on skills developed in the previous clinical placement. Students will have the opportunity to use theory, the ICF, and interpret and analyse evidence-based research to develop holistic client centred assessment and treatment plans. Students will develop approaching entry level clinical skills in assessment and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders and develop a further understanding of interdisciplinary practice.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Assess clients with increasingly complex communication and swallowing disorders using informal and formal tests/tasks, with some supervision, assessments to determine the need for speech pathology services;

2. Interpret assessment results to diagnose and treat clients with a range of communication disorders;

3. Develop holistic and client-centred therapy for children or adults with a variety of communication disorders that are supported by theory and the critical appraisal of research;

4. Apply the ICF to assessment and treatment of clients with a range of communication disorders; and

5. Evaluate interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary practice.
