A Concentration in Speech Pathology and Audiology Serving the Needs of Teachers of Various Disciplines.
Elizabeth City State Univ., NC.
Elizabeth City State University has established a program concentrating in speech pathology and audiology which is nontraditional in approach. It serves as a support in giving valuable substance and current expertise to those programs already offered in the area of language proficiency. Growing out of the established educational concept that skills can best be taught by those teachers with the specific, detailed knowledge from the discipline that have proven effective in developing expertise in particular areas, the program in speech pathology and audiology was instituted to give teachers the expertise in developing language proficiency. The courses in Phonetics, Introduction to Speech Pathology, Anatomy and the Vocal Mechanism, Pathology II, and Clinical Procedure and Practice, are especially useful in teaching reading skills, designing objectives for remediating basic speech and language problems, and establishing behavioral objectives for language arts. The program is especially useful in designing objectives, procedures and materials to serve the exceptional child, both retarded and gifted, in language growth. All courses are structured to provide expertise in servicing the exceptional child. Opportunities are available for interdepartmental use of materials, equipment, and student-faculty exchange of services. (Author/JMF)
