Primary Instructor:

This course focuses on developmental language disorders in young children and acquired language disorders in both adults and children. We investigate these issues in both spoken and signed languages. We will examine these disorders at the sound, word and sentence levels, looking at these impairments in children, as well as in adults who have neurological disorders and traumatic brain injuries. The course also explores how the study of these disorders helps us understand first language acquisition. Some of the questions we will address are: What is a language disorder? Does it manifest differently in speakers and signers? How do speech pathologists treat speech disorders? How does hearing affect articulation? What are the connections between hearing, speech and literacy?

Intended Audience:

No background in linguistics is expected for this course.
