    Prerequisite: LING 1F94 or permission of the Chair.

    LING 2P90

    Anatomy and Physiology of Speech Production

Theories and models of speech motor control and speech perception.

    Lectures, lab, 3 hours per week.

    Prerequisites: LING 1F94 and 2P90.

    Completion of this course will replace previous assigned grade and credit obtained in LING 3P99.

    Lectures, 3 hours per week; lab, 2 hours per week.

    Restriction: open to HEAR and SPLS (single or combined) majors with approval to year 4 (honours), HESC and SLSC Certificate students.

    LING 4P21

    Clinical Observation of Communication Disorders


    Directed observation in the evaluation and treatment of speech, language, hearing and/or swallowing disorders. Observation experience may include videotape analyses and visits to off-campus clinical observation sites.
