CSCD5072: Clinical Practice 4 - Adult

Students complete a speech pathology placement to further develop and consolidate their skills with adult clients and services in areas required for competency as an entry-level practitioner in speech pathology. Students develop personal learning goals and use critical reflection to improve their speech pathology practice. They also engage in reciprocal learning with colleagues from other professions and the wider community.
