Students learn about language development and disorders in infants, pre-schoolers, school-aged children, and adolescents. They focus on the theoretical frameworks and the research evidence base, guiding methods of assessment, analysis, and diagnosis and the design of interventions, in language domains encompassing listening, speaking, reading, and writing. They also learn about the incidence, prevalence, associated conditions, and impacts of language disorders on children's and adolescents' social participation and learning. Students learn through applying knowledge to make clinical decisions in practical activities and simulated cases. This subject provides essential preparation for the clinical practice subjects in the Master of Speech Pathology (C04386).
