The course gives an advanced study in the area of cognition, communication and disability, on the basis of current research. The course begins with an overview of different memory systems and how these relate to communication ability. Memory and language are studied around different themes, such as hearing, reading, writing and development. The course highlights typical and atypical neurological, cognitive and linguistic development. The basic concepts and theories that are highlighted during the course are applied on patient groups such as cerebral paresis, autism, CI, learning disability and language disorder. Clinical applications, such as testing and assessment from patient case are an important part of the course.
The course contains lectures, clinical laboratory sessions, demonstrations, seminars and literature studies.
The course is examined through an individual assignment that focuses the course contents from a patient-centred interdisciplinary perspective, and is presented at a seminar.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
