Course overview

The module is concerned with the lived experience of disability and/or deafness. Consideration is given to the broad spectrum of disability and deafness across the life course. Reference is made to the human ecology of development and participation at the level of the individual, community and society.

As students from speech and language therapy, education and other relevant educational backgrounds, you are encouraged to critically review your own professional work and to generate new ways of promoting inclusive practice and research.
