Swallowing and Neurogenics 1 - CSCD5023

Year - 2018

Students will acquire the knowledge and skills to conduct clinical assessment and management for clients with speech motor and motor programming disorders such as dysarthria and apraxia as well as assessment and management of feeding and swallowing impairments in adults and children. Students will learn to describe, evaluate and conduct and justify interventions for these populations. A focus on case problem solving will be emphasised to achieve integration of theory and practical skills. This unit of study prepares students to conduct appropriate and evidence based clinical assessment and management for these populations.
