Learning Exchange

In Teams of 2, all 3rd year speech pathology students exchange knowledge across a ten week, one day a week interaction with local disability service agencies, and through conversation with local people who identify themselves as having a disability. This is because students need to gain an understanding of health and disability systems and the role of speech pathology within those systems, and to also gain knowledge of the ways in which clients with significant and/or complex communication needs can be assessed and appropriate AAC resources be developed.
