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:

analyse, interpret, and report speech pathology assessment data gathered from clients with acquired language and/or cognitive communication impairments

plan and justify speech pathology interventions and their implementation for clients with acquired language and/or cognitive communication impairments
