Course Content (Syllabus)
This is a survey course examining speech, hearing and language disorders in children and adults. It first examines different models of language disability and then proceeds with a discussion of the physical basis of the communication chain. It provides a classification of linguistic pathologies and examines a variety of disorders including phonological/articulation disorders, cleft lip/palate, voice disorders, disorders of fluency, motor speech and swallowing disorders, developmental disorders, acquired disorders in adults and children and hearing disorders. Issues of assessment and intervention are also examined. The course explores the use of empirical data for a deeper understanding of speech and language disorders.
