Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

describe assessment and analysis approaches for children with diverse communication needs in line with the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health Framework and other models

provide feedback on results of speech pathology assessments to the client and/or significant others, and discuss goals and management options
