Communicative Disorders Assistant – 12 Months
This Ontario Graduate Certificate program is designed for students who wish to work as a Communicative Disorders Assistant in a supportive capacity with a qualified speech-language pathologist and/or audiologist. This 12-month program runs from September to August and prepares graduates to design and implement programming based on the assessments and treatment plans outlined by qualified speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
Within the three, concurrent terms, and block placements, students will acquire an understanding of physiological and functional speech, language and hearing disorders. Programming skills and communication intervention techniques will be developed through a combination of in-class curriculum, hands-on training, and practical application from experienced faculty members currently working in the field. These skills are reinforced through the students' participation in two practicum placements. The placements provide students with a minimum of 490 hours to observe, learn, practice and apply practical skills and techniques in the field of speech and language and/or audiology within a community setting.
This program is recognized by the Communicative Disorders Assistant Association of Canada (CDAAC).
