This subject will provide the theoretical foundation and professional skills base necessary for competent practice in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment/management of developmental speech impairments in children and adolescents. Aetiological factors, and models and processes explaining normal speech development and impairment will be discussed. Implications across cultural contexts will be considered. Assessment and intervention methods will be described and demonstrated. Practical opportunities will be provided for students to observe, record and analyse normal and impaired oromotor function and speech, and for students to practice simple assessment administration. The effects of speech impairments on activity and participation in educational and community contexts will be explored.
