CSD 300 Developmental Considerations in the Assessment and Treatment of Language Disorders (3)
CSD 300, Developmental Considerations in the Assessment and Treatment of Language Disorders (DEV OF LANG DIS), is a 3-credit course typically offered every Fall semester. For Communications Sciences and Disorders majors, CSD 300 is a required course, requiring a grade of "C" or better, and should be taken during the second or third year (semester standing 3-6). The course is oriented toward students who intend to pursue a career in speech-language pathology and provides the foundation for higher level speech and language courses in Communications Sciences and Disorders. The overall educational objective of the course is to introduce students to child language development as the foundation for assessing and treating children with language disorders. This is done by lecture and active learning experiences so that students understand (a) several theories and information concerning the relations between normal and abnormal language development in children, (b) how individual, cultural, and linguistic differences contribute to language development, (c) the relations between theories of language development and empirical research, and (d) the interaction between normal and abnormal language development in children. Students are required to complete reading assignments and participate in group activities.
