Overview

Using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework, you will interpret assessments, and plan intervention strategies for the management of delays and disorders in this population. Service delivery models that encompass interprofessional practice principles and cross-cultural service provision in metropolitan, rural and remote communities will be discussed.
