Class Inside the Lab
Health science students studying speech, OT, and PT all need to understand about the human brain, spinal cord, heart, lungs, and relevant muscular origins and insertions, nerve innervations, and muscle actions.
Speech students will focus on the human anatomical structures as they relate to articulation, phonation, respiration, resonance, hearing, and swallowing. OT students benefit from an in-depth study of the brain, spinal cord, and muscles of the upper torso and extremities. PT students need to learn all of the above as well as the muscles of the core and lower extremities.
All of this content is foundational for future courses emphasizing clinical applications.
