Speech Pathology Clinical Practice 6 (HEASP4063)

This course is the final of six professional practice courses in the Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Hons) program that consolidates and provides direct evidence of achievement of Professional Standards required by Speech Pathology Australia for entry into the profession. Speech Pathology Australia requires that Professional Standards (2020) are achieved, demonstrated and consolidated whilst working across the population lifespan in final 4th year professional practice placements. Consequently, in this course, students will work in a range of practice areas and with a different population than in the previous professional practice placements. During the previous five professional practice courses, students have progressively increased their independence and ability to manage complexity, and skills in assessing, interpreting, diagnosing, planning and implementing interventions and services as well as evaluating professional practice. In this course, students will engage in professional practice placements across one or more of the Speech Pathology Australia range of practice areas of speech, language, voice, fluency, swallowing,and multimodal communication. Entry level skills for beginning speech pathologist, knowledge and attitudes are fostered throughout the course, as students prepare for transition to the workforce. On completion of the course, students will be expected to demonstrate advanced level competency in accordance with the Professional Standards of Practice for Speech Pathologists for all domains of the profession. The course will provide a minimum of 240 hours (six weeks at 40 hours/week) of supervised professional experience practice placement (PEP) with flexible support from the university.
