Abstract

Communication Disorders' students were assigned to provide services to families or individuals regardless of ethnicity, religion or national origin. Consequently, Communication Disorders students learned to interact with people of diverse ideas, culture and national origin. The specific populations identified to meet this outcome are individuals enrolled in the department's clinical programs for Acquired Brain Injury Resource Program, the Kelly Autism Program and other related programs. Student clinicians assigned to provide evaluation and intervention services provided an in-service to undergraduate students. During the in-service, the clinicians administered a pre-post test to assess the student's knowledge of diverse populations and appropriate intervention strategies and thereby assessed the impact of these programs on training students to provide appropriate services.
