Program Description:
Global Issues in CSD: London Perspective

May 5-13, 2018


Program Description 

CSD London Machael Palin Cente

Join us for the CSD in London, England trip abroad during the spring/summer intercession of 2018! Students participating in this 8 day study abroad program to London, England will learn about the delivery of communication sciences and disorder services to individuals with a wide variety of communication disorders such as stuttering, hearing loss, autism spectrum disorder, and language difficulties. Students will observe evaluation and intervention services delivered throughout the London area. Graduate level students from the speech-language therapy (SLT) and audiology programs at University College of London will provide insight into their own programs while USF students participate in lectures provided by the university.  In addition students may participate in a 1/2 day tour and lecture at the Michael Palin Center for Stammering Children where their evidence based programs will be discussed and live therapy sessions may be observed. This opportunity will provide them with skills to conduct treatment with children who have stuttering (called “stammering” in the UK) disorders in a family centered model.  The students can also visit and observe at a public day school focused on students with moderate special needs, including autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities. The school houses preschool aged children through 24 years of age.  Students will also have the opportunity to tour and join lectures related to voice, dysphagia, cochlear implants and aural rehabilitation at the Royal National Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital. A visit to a local charitable organization and private practice center focused on helping those with hearing loss will also be on the itinerary.
In addition to academic centered observations and trainings, many cultural activities will be included in this trip including tours of famous landmarks in London (e.g. Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, The British Museum, etc.) as well as excursions to Stonehenge, the town of Bath and Windsor Castle. Additional options for this trip may also include afternoon tea and a night at the theater.
Major benefits of this trip include the opportunity for students to collaborate with fellow undergraduate and graduate level students studying communication sciences and disorders as well as experience the cultural diversity of London and all that its city has to offer.

London, England- the capital of the United Kingdom. It is among the oldest of the world’s great cities and its history spans nearly two millennia. London's history stretches back over thousands of years, and the city boasts four World Heritage Sites: the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, Maritime Greenwich and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. About one third of London is devoted to parks and open spaces. In addition it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. By far Britain’s largest metropolis, it is also the country’s economic, transportation, and cultural center. London is situated in southeastern England, lying astride the River Thames some 50 miles (80 km) upstream from its estuary on the North Sea. Around 230 languages are spoken there and you'll find a wealth of different cultures and communities throughout the capital.
