Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students attend 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 specialist nature eg. a specialised voice clinic, intensive fluency , paediatric feeding clinic, etc. Students will attend 12 days at one facility. This may take the form of one day a week, for 12 weeks, or consist of a more intensive period proceeded by follow up sessions. Students begin to refine the clinical skills, acquired over the previous three semesters, applying these more independently as the subject progresses with the aim of achieving entry level on the COMPASS® assessment by the end of the subject. Students develop specialist clinical skills related to particular work settings and develop their clinical management skills further.
