SPEECH PATHOLOGY PRACTICE D

HCS5SPD

2015

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

In this subject students will complete 33 days of clinic, in either an adult or paediatric setting, at La Trobe's Communication Clinic or an external facility. 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. Through block placements, students develop an understanding of, and participate in, the broader range of roles and activities of a speech pathologist in 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.
