SPEECH PATHOLOGY PRACTICE C

HCS5SPC

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students attend 10-12 days of clinic in either an adult or a paediatric setting, at La Trobe's Communication Clinic or an external facility. This placement may offer students experience of a more specific nature eg. a specialised voice clinic, intensive fluency, paediatric feeding clinic but it is not exclusively a specialist placement. This may take the form of one day per week over 10 weeks, or consist of a more intensive and/or varied period (as in the intensive fluency program). Students begin to refine the clinical skills acquired over their previous placements, applying these more independently, with the aim of achieving entry level on the COMPASS assessment by the end of the subject.  Note this subject will be replaced by HCS5SPE from 2017 onwards (except for students who are repeating SPC or had postponed study in 2015 or 2016).
