About this Unit
This unit provides an orientation to the foundational concepts that underpin Speech Pathologists’ practice in the areas of communication and mealtimes across the lifespan. The unit will introduce students to core practice areas and explore the role of the Speech Pathologist in working with individuals, families and communities across different clinical contexts. Students will have the opportunity to compare and contrast typical and disordered presentation of speech, language, voice, fluency, multimodal communication and swallowing in both children and adults. Throughout the unit, theoretical approaches to working effectively in partnership with individuals, families and models will be illustrated.
