for fluency disorders across the lifespan. Module 2: Counselling will provide an introduction
to the principles and practices of counselling for speech pathology. Module 3: Clinical
Practicum, students will work directly, with support from clinical educators with
clients with a range of impairments, activity limitations and participation restrictions
