|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Healthcare Sciences
Enrolment is restricted to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Speech Pathology,
Bachelor of Speech Pathology (IHCAP) or Bachelor of Speech Pathology with Honours
This subject introduces students to speech pathology clinical processes and competencies
through class and experiential clinical activities. In this subject, knowledge, skills
and professional attributes as outlined in CBOS 2011 will be discussed, with an emphasis
on client centred and evidence based approaches to the management of communication
difficulties and on types of hearing loss. Students will be introduced to central
auditory processing disorders (CAPD), hearing measurement and testing, the impact
of loss of hearing across the lifespan and the role of speech pathology in management
of hearing loss. Students will apply basic principles required for speech pathology
assessment and intervention including integration of prior learning (such as acoustics,
phonetics, linguistics and anatomy) to speech pathology assessment and treatment to
understand the principles of speech pathology practice. Students will undertake observations
and clinical placements with supervision and guidance from clinical educators.
- apply clinical reasoning in assessment and management decisions regarding case studies
and clinical activities;
- communicate reasoning, observations and clinical findings verbally and in writing
in an accurate, professional and ethical manner;
- evaluate and employ a variety of approaches in assessment and management of communication
- demonstrate skills in accurate observations and effective interaction with clients
- review and apply the CBOS 2011 (Compentency Based Occupational Standards 2011, Speech
Pathology Australia), the Speech Pathology Australia Code of Ethics (2010), the International
Classification of Function, and the principles of Evidence Based Practice, adult learning
and group work to clinical practice.
