30 Credits ACADEMIC YEAR



Aims/Description: This module aims to introduce the student to the professional practice of the speech and language therapist (SLT). The module combines students' learning of theoretical knowledge of clinical methods, people with communication and eating, drinking and swallowing impairments and inter-personal and professional skills with clinical placements with children and adults with communication (and in some cases eating, drinking and swallowing) impairments. The module introduces the student to their first clinical placements with children and adult clients across placements in the Philippa Cottam Communication Clinic (PCCC) (the clinic in HCS), plus external placements in the NHS and independent sectors.

Restrictions on availability: Yes. This module is restricted to students completing the BMedSci (Speech and Language Therapy). This is a professional module including placements and therefore not open to other students.
