The Role of the Speech-Language Pathologist in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

You will be able to:
- recognize infant states, cues of stress, and levels of comfort
- utilize appropriate assessment/management methods
- discuss the role of speech-language pathology in interdisciplinary assessment and treatment
