Course description

This course is designed for speech and language therapists/pathologists, linguists, psychologists and other professionals with a relevant background and special interest in Speech Sound Disorders and their link to literacy difficulties. You can study part-time by distance learning or full-time.

  • knowledge of current research into spoken and written language development and difficulties
  • understanding of the impact of Speech Sound Disorders on an individual in terms of school, home and social life, as well as employment and relationships
  • knowledge of a range of technical and research methods used in the investigation of speech and literacy difficulties and evaluation of subsequent intervention programmes
  • knowledge of current assessments and interventions for children with speech and literacy difficulties
  • competency in quantitative and qualitative research design and methods relevant to analysing and carrying out intervention for these disorders

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we’ll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption. We are no longer offering unrestricted module choice. If your course included unrestricted modules, your department will provide a list of modules from their own and other subject areas that you can choose from.

Full-time students may also attend lectures, seminars and practical workshops offered in the division and the Health Sciences School.
