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:

formulate evidence-based speech pathology assessment plans for child and adult clients presenting with fluency disorders

use scientifically supported methods to identify, measure and rate stuttering behaviours and identify the presence of a fluency disorder

analyse speech pathology assessment data to formulate a diagnosis for clients presenting with a fluency disorder

demonstrate evidence-based speech pathology intervention for child and adult clients presenting with fluency disorders
