This performance-based clinical subject further develops the clinical knowledge, skills and professional attributes developed in SL2011, as outlined in CBOS 2011 with an emphasis on client centred and evidence-based approaches to the management of communication difficulties. Students will continue to apply the principles required for speech pathology assessment and intervention including integration of prior learning. Students will undertake clinical placements under the supervision and guidance of clinical educators and will have the opportunity to work directly with paediatric clients with speech and language impairments, activity limitations and participation restrictions. A range of settings, both in the internal clinic and external facilities will be used to ensure that students have the opportunity to develop clinical competence with a variety of clients.
