Course Description
Technology advances have made a substantial impact on rehabilitation service delivery over the past decade.  A number of technologies have potential to complement and augment current rehabilitation services.  Limited training in use and selecting appropriate applications of these technologies may constrain their effectiveness.  Speech-language pathologists and related professionals have the potential to maximize their clients' outcomes by using technologies to support evidence-based practices.
