This course surveys a broad range of communication disorders frequently encountered by speech-language pathologists who practice in medical facilities. The acquired communication deficits associated with aphasia, traumatic brain injury, dementia and right hemisphere brain damage will be explored, along with disorders of voice, speech and swallowing. The nature of these disorders will be surveyed with an emphasis on understanding the underlying bases, and the role of the medical speech-language pathologist in their assessment and management.
