Aims

Acquired motor speech disorders:

To integrate and use knowledge and skills from previous and concurrent modules, as well as knowledge and skills gained in this module, in order to recognise, differentially diagnose and treat acquired neurological speech disorders.

Pragmatics:

To introduce the clinical presentations, assessment and differential diagnosis of pragmatic disorders in children and adults and apply known problem-solving methods to the design and conduct of treatment for such cases.

Outline Of Syllabus

Theories and models of speech motor control; neurological, linguistic, acoustic, articulatory persoptual appraoches to explanation and classification; Intellgibility testing and relationship to listener and speaker variables; physical assessment and relationship to intelligibility; differesntial diagnosis of disruption to the speech signal and of underlying causes; goal setting, outcome measures and treament methods for acquired sppech disorders; assessment of dysphagia.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship

Class book presentation: to examine in detail an aspect of clinical theory/ assessment/ treatment and convey this to other members of class in a clear concise manner through written production and for some students (depending on topic) by oral practical demonstration
Class test: aims to cover basic knowledge base and to problem solve selected scenarios relating to decision making in assessment/ differential diagnosis and treatment planning.

Case Management Plans: Assess the students ability to apply the knowledge they have learned and PBL techniques, in order to appropriately diagnose and plan treatment for a new case.
To integrate and apply knowledge acquired from class sessions and group work to real clinical data in a problem solving approach.

Assessment Methods

The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
