This module builds on knowledge and skills covered in SLT2304 - Introduction to Clinical Reasoning and Professional Issues in Speech Therapy. Students will continue to grow their skills in clinical reasoning, supported by evidence-based practice, across simple to moderately complex cases through problem-based learning.
Cases will cover the range of practice which may include speech, language, voice, swallowing, fluency and multi-modal communication. The complex cases will also require students to consider and evaluate ethical, cultural, and professional issues. This module will also incorporate contemporary topics affecting speech and language therapy practice.
Students will consider goal setting for therapy and learn to evaluate therapy outcomes. Students will demonstrate good interpersonal communication amongst peers, faculty, and clients.
