Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
1. Have knowledge and ability to understand the role of the Speech Therapist (SLP) in the fields related to the disturbance of human communication and swallowing;
2. Be able to analyze and reflect on therapeutic activities that are part of the TF activity profile;
3. Collect, select and interpret relevant information, including social, scientific and ethical aspects, according to the presented case studies;
4. Present generic professional skills of clinical reasoning, professional communication, continuous learning and professional behavior.
Syllabus:
I - Analysis of videos of cases followed in Pedagogical Clinic of UFP;
II - Analysis of illustrative videos of different intervention programs;
III - Analysis of reference articles of practices based on evidence in Speech Therapy.
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
Given the CU specificity of compilation and analysis of previous knowledge, has no predefined PC. The contents to be considered by the teacher are defined according to the characteristics and needs of each student, according to the cases that arise in the course of CU in the same semester of Clinical Teaching I. They consist of technical and scientific guidance necessary for the clinical performance , design of the internship plan and preparation of progress reports and final stage. The discussions and analyzes referred to in PC I, II and III guide the student in understanding and adoption of best practices regarding the management of cases that are their responsibility.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Casses are theoretical and practical, focusing on presentation and discussion of case studies, with an emphasis on driving an adequate clinical reasoning to the uniqueness of each case. It is given great importance to the formulation of clinical problems and analysis of different possible answers, based on scientific reference articles, starting from real cases (video, case studies in scientific articles or cases of clinical teaching). It is encouraged the dialogue process.
The students are asked to fill assessment tools regarding communication and language, using case studies on video; Role-play situations (assessment and intervention).

Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The pedagogical implementation of classes arises in a manner consistent with the fundamental objectives of the CU. Thus, in this CU students will learn to observe, evaluate and decide, knowing reasons for its decisions. the course consists of theoretical and theoretical-practical lessons, thus educational methodologies used fall within the best procedures used in this area. So, exposure of the best practices of SLP found in the published research is done by promoting participation and critical analysis by students, accompanied by consolidation exercises. In these classes is intended to develop students' knowledge and increase their awareness of the importance of the issues addressed in the clinical real context, and the visualization of real situations contribute to a better environment and greater ease in perception of the goals to be achieved. Students will learn by observing, analyzing, reflecting and making decisions about the issues and proposed alternatives, improving their skills in the subjects concerned. Given the ecological and holistic dimension of SLP activities, CU search will be essentially to promote capabilities to apply in different contexts knowledge acquired under the influence of different factors and variables, including SLP performance contexts. Verification of the perception of the understanding of the same concepts occur with use of interrogative and participatory method. The development of knowledge and skills of this course will be made by performing small practical work (eg case studies, role-play), exercises in the classroom (eg evaluation reports based on observation of videos) and work independent research and application of acquired skills in a real context. In addition, work will be proposed with the use of specific cases (video and teaching clinic TF UFP) related to the course area. Finally, the evaluation of students will serve to measure the effectiveness of teaching methods developed at UC and, if necessary, in the future it may will make some corrections in teaching methodologies.
