Dr. Christina Kuo is offering CSD 490: Special Studies in Communication Sciences and Disorders this Spring as an elective for CSD students.
This is a 3-credit seminar course, and the topic emphasis will be on intelligibility – the understanding of speech. This is a topic relevant for both speech and language as well as hearing sciences. Communication requires that a person produces speech signals that are sufficient for the communication partner to understand. The underlying mechanisms associated with intelligibility, the theoretical development of a framework for understanding intelligibility, and its clinical relevance will be considered.
