Hearing and Speech Descriptions

1000-level units of study

BIOS1163 Speech Science

Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Dr Helen Ritchie Session: Semester 1 Classes: Three 1hr lectures/week, 2hr practical:tutorials/week Assessment: Mid semester exam (30%), worksheet (5%), end semester exam (65%) Campus: Cumberland, Sydney Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
This unit aims to provide an understanding of the anatomy, physiology and physics of speech. Students will gain a detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck as well as functional activities involving swallowing and speech. In addition student will learn the role of physics in sound production. Control of breathing and respiration in normal and pathological condition is also covered in this unit. Practical classes will take a case-based approach to learning. This unit includes laboratory classes in which human cadavers are studied; attendance at such classes is required.
Students enrolled in Bachelor of Applied Science (Speech Pathology) attend all BIOS1163 classes at the Cumberland Campus (ND-LC).
Students enrolled in the Hearing and Speech major or minor attend all BIOS1163 classes at the Camperdown Campus (ND-CC).
JA Seikel: Anatomy and Physiology for speech, language and hearing 4th Edition
CSCD1034 Linguistics and Phonetics

Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Dr Greg Flannery Session: Semester 1,Summer Main Classes: 2x2-hr lectures/wk, weeks 1-13 Assessment: Transcription exam 1 barrier task (20%), transcription exam 2 barrier task (20%), final exam (55%), 1x1hr research participation (5%) Practical field work: Participation in practical learning Campus: Cumberland, Sydney Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
Note: Speech Pathology students must pass this unit in order to enrol in clinical units in Year 2. Students without a sound knowledge of formal traditional grammar are encouraged to undertake the Grammar bridging course in February. This unit is a prerequisite for CSCD2057 Child Language and CSCD2068 Speech Sound Disorders
Students will explore the nature of language: introduction to phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics and orthographic systems, , with a clinical focus. Particular emphasis on grammar, phonetics and articulation assessment and intervention. Analysis of language for clinical purposes (especially grammar transcription and phonetic transcription skills). This unit of study prepares students with the necessary background knowledge to undertake phonology, language and clinical units later in the course.
