Enrolment is restricted to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Speech Pathology,

This subject is comprised of two modules: Stuttering and Counselling. The Stuttering
module will provide the theoretical foundation and professional skill base necessary
for competent practice in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment/management of stuttering
disorders across the lifespan. Epidemiological, aetiological and contributing factors
will be discussed. Current methods for assessment, diagnosis, prevention and intervention
will be described, demonstrated and evaluated with respect to evidence-in-practice
principles. The impact of stuttering on activities and participation will also be
a focus for discussion. The Counselling module will provide an introduction to the
principles and practices of counselling for speech pathology.
- demonstrate knowledge of the theories and processes underlying: the development and
progression of fluency, dysfluency and stuttering; approaches to assessment, diagnosis
and intervention; and the limitations and restrictions that stuttering can impose
on the activities and participation of people who stutter;
- demonstrate competency in basic counselling skills;
- demonstrate competency in diagnostic and management processes for people who stutter
by: selecting and administering appropriate assessments; analysing and interpreting
assessment results; identifying further information and referral requirements; selecting
and planning an intervention approach; and appropriate reporting.
