SLHS 1911: Diversity in Social Communication

3 CreditsFreshman Seminar

Social communication is the process of interacting with others to send a message. It includes speech, language, and nonverbal communication such as eye contact and gestures. Social communication develops from infancy and changes over the lifespan. There are differences in social communication across cultures, generations, genders, and communication disorders. This course will provide students with an understanding of what social communication is and how it develops, how it relates to speech and language, how it differs from person to person, and how speech-language pathologists and other professionals evaluate and treat social communication impairments. The course will focus on neurodiversity related to autism as well as on cultural self-awareness and building cultural competence.
