CSD 1720: Anatomy and Physiology of the Speech System3 Semester CreditsSpring 2012 Patrick R. Walden, Ph.D., CCC-SLP Course Syllabus
The anatomy and physiology of respiratory, phonatory, and articulatory systems as they are used in speech as well as the swallowing system. Introduction to the nervous system, particularly as the controller of the speech/swallow mechanisms. Preliminary information about audition will also be covered.
COURSE OBJECTIVES This course’s objectives include the following:
Students will develop an understanding of the anatomical and physiological bases for respiration. Learning Outcome:
1. Student will be able to identify anatomical structures pertinent to respiration.
2. Student will be able to describe how these anatomical structures are physiologically used for respiration.
Students will develop an understanding of the anatomical and physiological bases for phonation. Learning Outcome:
1. Student will be able to identify anatomical structures pertinent to phonation.
2. Student will be able to describe how these anatomical structures are physiologically used for phonation.
Students will develop an understanding of the anatomical and physiological bases for articulation and resonance.
1. Student will be able to identify anatomical structures pertinent to articulation and resonance. 2. Student will be able to describe how these anatomical structures are physiologically used for articulation and resonance.
Students will develop an understanding of the anatomical and physiological bases for deglutition. Learning Outcome:
1. Student will be able to identify anatomical structures pertinent to deglutition.
2. Student will be able to describe how these anatomical structures are physiologically used for deglutition.
V. Students will develop an understanding of the neurological basis for speech and language. Learning Outcome:
1. Student will be able to identify neurological structures pertinent to speech and language.
2. Student will be able to describe how these neurological structures are physiologically used for speech and language reception and production.

STUDENT RESOURCES FROM TEXT
Your Fuller, Pimentel, and Peregoy (2012) text has several student resources I HIGHLY recommend you use to study. It includes a quiz bank, animations, and videos. Please use these on your own at home.
This course uses blackboard as a means to meet online as well as to communicate with each other. If you do not know about blackboard or do not fully understand how to use it, please see me and we can go over its use. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THIS COURSE WITHOUT KNOWING HOW TO ACCESS AND USE BLACKBOARD!
SPECIAL NATURE OF THIS COURSE This course requires extra effort from students. This course often comes during a student’s first year in the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology major when the student is still acclimating to the major. Students also, for some reason, fear this course. DO NOT FEAR THIS COURSE! But know that you will have to work on the subject matter substantially OUTSIDE OF CLASS. That means you will not succeed in this course unless you take an ACTIVE role in your OWN learning (see below). We simply do not have enough time in class to discuss every aspect of Anatomy and Physiology. YOU must take responsibility for YOUR OWN learning. This course is set up so that you will get a lot of hands-on time with the material and you should feel comfortable with the material at the end of the course if you put in the time outside of class.
You are expected to attend all scheduled class sessions. In the event you miss a class, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with your colleagues to review the session and obtain materials that you did not get. Unexpected events do occur and I will make every effort to make alternate arrangements for make-up assessments after receiving the necessary documentation to excuse your absence. I will NOT arrange any make- up for an absence that is not documented sufficiently to be excused. If you can’t document your absence, you will not be able to make up the assignment. Also, LOOK AT and USE the course schedule. You know in advance when assignments are due and when you have a test/quiz. Schedule your absences around those times.
This course contains five forms of assessment: 1 individual project, a group project, five unit quizzes, a Midterm exam and a Final Exam. NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Individual Project (presentation):
Each student will, present, using OneNote as a presentation tool, on one aspect of audition and describe one type of disorder which may occur within this system. Each student will be assigned a topic. Presentations will be no longer than 20 minutes. It is highly recommended that you discuss the assigned disorder with the course instructor prior to creating the presentation.
You will be randomly assigned to a group. Each group will be assigned a chapter on pathologies associated with a particular communication subsystem (respiration/phonation/articulation/swallowing). This presentation will
be created as a OneNote presentation and shared with the class via a hyperlink. The group will also present their findings during class.
5 Unit Quizzes:
One, in-class quiz will be administered for each system we cover in the course. These quizzes help you prepare for the midterm/final exams. These quizzes have been scheduled in advance (see course schedule). No Make- ups, no exceptions.
One midterm examination will be held during the course. The exam will cover all information from the first one-half of the course. The examination will be taken in class.
One final examination will be held at the end of the course. The exam will cover the topics we cover in the last 1⁄2 of the class. The final examination will be taken in class during the scheduled exam time.

Reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities and language barriers will be made. If you are a person with a disability and desire accommodations to complete course requirements, please arrange to meet with the instructor at your earliest convenience to discuss your request.
Reasonable accommodations will be made in order for students to observe religious practices and beliefs. Please notify the instructor in advance of your intention to participate in religious observation and request an absence.
ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT Acts of dishonesty in any work constitute academic misconduct. The academic disciplinary policy at St. John’s University will be followed in the event of academic misconduct. Please note the policy on academic misconduct in your student handbook.
INCOMPLETE GRADE POLICY
No incomplete grades are given at the undergraduate level.
