The course includes information about the various types of communication disorders and how they are diagnosed and treated.

This course will allow students to develop an understanding of evidence-based practice in the modern health care arena. This course offers a unique opportunity to learn critical thinking skills, evaluate scientific inquiry and discern information that has evidence from that with no support. The ability to evaluate ideas, and in particular, distinguishing scientific evidence from fiction is critical to success in any scholarly discipline, different ideas, such as perpetual motion machines, cold fusion, homeopathy, the role of media in spreading voodoo and scientific misconduct will be explored. Many of these have started out as sincere attempts to understand various phenomena, but at some point were found to not be supported by evidence. Unfortunately, these ideas continued to be promoted for a variety of reasons including financial gain, professional name, or social prominence and as such became fraudulent. As part of this course, we will study evidence-based practice in health care in relation to Voodoo Science.
