Subject outline

In this subject students are involved in a range of clinical experiences. These clinical placements emphasise the development of independent management of clients who demonstrate disorders in the component processes of communication (speech, language, voice and fluency) and disorders in the process of swallowing. Students experience the real working environment under the supervision of qualified speech pathologists. Students attend more than one clinic and are expected to participate in a variety of professional activities reflecting the Competency-Based Occupational Standards for Speech Pathologists. Students participate in feedback and discussion sessions with their clinical supervisors.
