Language and Literacy Disorders Option
This option prepares students for professional practice in the diagnosis and treatment of language-based learning disorders in school age children. Students learn theory and practice in oral language as it relates to literacy acquisition and learning in the content areas. Practicum experiences in schools are available to enhance applied understanding. Upon graduating, students are equipped to meet the challenge of diagnosing and managing an array of language-based learning disabilities as team members alongside their professional colleagues in regular education, reading education, and learning disabilities. Those interested in obtaining dual certification in reading education and speech-language pathology are encouraged to contact the Education Department.
Students will complete a combination of core, required, and elective courses to earn a minimum of 61 credits. See course descriptions for a list of all CSD graduate courses.
