The modular university course “Logopedics” aims to provide students with more in-depth, specialized, applied, academic and practical skills in logopedics. The content is designed around the main objective of imparting current research results and methods required for academic work in logopedics. At the same time, the necessary connection between theory and practice in the application-oriented areas of logopedics is made apparent.
Great attention is paid to the manifold logopedic processes in the areas of diagnostics/therapy and prevention/rehabilitation, consulting, researching and teaching language and speech disorders and disabilities, breathing, voice, oral functions, as well as multi-faceted disabilities arising from hearing impairments.
Students learn both pathogenetic and salutogenetic approaches along with management concepts, academic and analytical concepts in the field of logopaedics (taking into account political and business economics, information technology, legal basics and framework conditions).
The university course targets speech therapists with pertinent professional qualification and is held in German only.
