  • RST 535
    Pediat Speech & Lang Disorders
    3 cr

    This survey course covers terminology, assessment and intervention for children from birth to age 21 years who present with spoken and written language disorders, including language impairment associated with other developmental disabilities, in particular, autism spectrum disorders.
