Sweden: Communicative Sciences and Disorders

Learn speech and language science best practices this summer in Sweden, a country known for its state-of-the-art approaches. You will learn about cultural and professional issues pertaining to research and clinical practice. You will also learn to compare and contrast motor speech disorders and develop hypotheses, rationales, and priorities for evaluation and treatment. Lund University neurologists, otolaryngologists, radiologists, and speech pathologists will share their expertise, and visits to local hospitals and rehabilitation centers round out the program.
