Assistive Technology for Students with Learning Disabilities
This course consists of supervised experiences in a clinical setting and seminar sessions that provide preliminary opportunities for application of didactic course work. Emphasis will be placed on the development of communication and interpersonal skills in the clinical setting, as well as documentation and physical therapy skills and procedures that have been introduced in courses. Prerequisite: Successful completion of the first 2 semesters of the DPT curriculum or permission of instructor. CLN.
Assistive Technology for Communication ..
The field of Communication Science and Disorders, or CSD, encompasses the related but distinct disciplines of speech-language pathology (SLP), audiology, and speech, language, and hearing sciences (SLHS). Speech-language pathologists and audiologists are professionals educated in human communication and its disorders. Speech-language pathologists diagnose and treat disorders such as delayed language development, stuttering, articulation, and voice problems. Audiologists specialize in the prevention, identification, assessment, and rehabilitation of hearing disorders. Speech, language, and hearing scientists are professionals concerned with exploring trends in the communication sciences, as well as developing strategies for improving or adding to the knowledge base within the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology.
Many classrooms have access to all types of technology. Classroom computers, interactive whiteboards and calculators offer students alternative ways to access and interact with the curriculum. For some students, access to AT in the classroom is necessary to support their communication and learning. AT can help students with autism…
