What are CSDs?

What are communication sciences and disorders? 

How are they caused?

What type of college curriculum is nessessary to teach about these disorders?

These are some of the questions I will strive to answer over the course of this blog. I want to learn more about the profession I will be pursuing in order to write a compelling research paper about it.

According to the MUSC College of Health Professions:

“Communication disorders are caused by differences in biologic structure and function, as well as social, and psychological factors. For this reason, the Communication Sciences and Disorders curriculum emphasizes the scientific bases of speech, language, cognitive and swallowing disorders, as well as the medical, social and psychological context of these disorders and their treatment.

The program integrates evidence-based practice principles and strives to develop sound clinical reasoning in students with the ultimate aim of preparing speech-language pathologists who are knowledgeable and ethical interdisciplinary team members and competent, independent practitioners in culturally diverse medical, rehabilitation, and school environments.


Because this is on the website of a respected college of communication sciences and disorders, I believe that the information is correct.

The study of communication sciences and disorders includes two disciplines, audiology and speech-language pathology. I will go into these further in other posts.
