The Talking Brain: Typical and Disordered Communication

Have you ever wondered how communication is actually accomplished or who rehabilitates it when it breaks down? This class provides an introduction to the underappreciated processes of speech, language and hearing and the research approaches used to study them. We will also explore disordered communication and the role of the speech-language pathologist and audiologist in facilitating communication. Learn about brain injury, hearing loss, autism, stroke, stuttering, literacy, research methods and more. Discover why communication is an art and a science.
