SPEECH PATHOLOGY PRACTICE A

HCS5SPA

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Students attend 12 days of clinic in either an adult or a paediatric setting. This may be through the La Trobe Communication Clinic or at an external facility. The placement may take place 2 days/week over 6 weeks or 1 day/week over 6 weeks plus 2 days/week over 3 weeks. Students begin to refine the clinical skills acquired over the previous two semesters, applying these more independently as the subject progresses. Students develop specialist clinical skills related to particular work settings and develop their clinical management skills further. Through block placements students develop an understanding of, and participate in, the broader range of roles and activities of a speech pathologist across a working week. Students monitor their progress in obtaining the desired level of professional competency and devise a plan of action to address competency gaps. Students are expected to achieve intermediate level on the COMPASS® assessment by the end of the subject.
