This course is an overview of basic human communication sciences and disorders and the related professions. You will learn the development and characteristics of normal communication behavior: nature, causes, signs, symptoms, and interventions for communication disorders of speech, language, and hearing.
I earned by bachelor?s degree in communication disorders from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and my master?s degree from Washington State University in speech and hearing sciences. I spent several years working in the public school system as a speech language pathologist in WA, TX, and MI before joining UWEC in 2001. I teach Introduction to Communication Sciences and Disorders including the First Year Experience and thoroughly love getting students excited about our profession.
