This module builds upon students' understanding of typical communication from year one of the degree programme and identification of developmental and acquired speech language and communication difficulties in year 2 of the programme. Models of intervention, ethics, outcomes and management approaches will be introduced, along with extension of professional reasoning skills to include intervention planning for individual's difficulties across the range of the speech and language therapy caseload. There will be an emphasis on transferable skills, problem solving, evidence-based intervention and multi professional working. A biopsychosocial approach will be taken, enabling students to understand intervention for, and impact of, communication difficulties from a range of perspectives.
