Cleft Palate Speech: What Do I Hear? What Do I Do? (On Demand Webinar)
Format(s): On Demand Webinar, On Demand Webinar (Group)
Children with cleft palate often require speech intervention post-surgical repair to normalize their phonological learning of the high intraoral pressure consonants. In many cases, SLPs may find it challenging to differentiate between speech characteristics that are a result of persisting velopharyngeal insufficiency and those that are learned, habituated speech behaviors. This webinar will address both structural and speech challenges that can co-exist in children with repaired cleft palate so that SLPs in all clinical settings can help these children achieve their best outcomes for speech production.

Exposing Hidden Hearing Loss
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Noise exposure and aging are common causes of acquired sensorineural hearing loss, marked by damaged hair cells and evident in threshold audiograms. Recent studies have shown that well before overt hearing loss is apparent, a more insidious process frequently occurs, one that doesn’t kill hair cells, but instead permanently interrupts their communication with cochlear neurons. This cochlear synaptic loss can be dramatic, even in ears with normal threshold audiograms, where it has been called “hidden hearing loss.” This webinar will review hidden and overt effects of noise and aging on the ear and hearing, focusing on documented synaptopathic and neurodegenerative outcomes and predicted functional consequences, including speech-in noise difficulties, tinnitus, and hyperacusis.

Unilateral Neglect and Awareness Deficits After Right Hemisphere Brain Damage
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Two deficits commonly caused by damage to the right hemisphere are unilateral neglect and anosognosia.

These deficits commonly co-occur and have an impact on how well a patient participates in and responds to treatment. This webinar will discuss characteristics, assessment, and treatment of both disorders.
Assessing Acquired Apraxia of Speech: Practical Solutions to Common Challenges
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Differentiating apraxia of speech (AOS) from other acquired speech and language impairments is important clinically as it provides a framework for understanding the signs and symptoms of the disorder, which in turn influences which specific treatment method will be applied. However, diagnosis remains challenging since it hinges on expert-based judgment of speech features, with minimal guidance on the frequency, severity, or clustering of features required for positive diagnosis. This course provides a brief overview of the current diagnostic method and its limitations, followed by discussion and demonstration of effective objective and semi-automated speech measures for identifying acquired AOS in both stroke and progressive forms. Video case examples and demonstrations of these measures will be provided so that clinicians can immediately begin putting this knowledge into practice.
Treating Acquired Apraxia of Speech: Practical Solutions to Common Challenges
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) typically occurs alongside aphasia. Clinicians are often challenged with questions such as, “What should I work on first, and why/how?” and “How can I deliver intensive therapy in today’s healthcare system?” While there are a number of treatment approaches available for AOS, there are very few large-scale investigations of treatment efficacy to inform practice and limited studies that tackle the issues around intensity and concomitant disorders. This course summarizes the pros, cons, and similarities of impairment-based approaches to treatment for individuals with AOS plus aphasia. The outcomes from our latest Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences systematic review on treatment for AOS will be discussed along with more recent work. The course will provide demonstrations and detailed discussion of the rationale and procedures for those approaches with the strongest evidence to support clinical use, so that participants can immediately begin implementing these techniques in the clinic.

The webinar also will explore recent research into the associations between hearing health and other conditions such as cognitive decline, depression, falls, and diabetes, and the valuable opportunities these findings present for audiologists to fundamentally and effectively redefine the nature of the patient-provider relationship. Lastly, the webinar will conclude with an evidence-based list of the “top 10” best practice strategies that audiologists can put into place right away to redefine their practice and successfully face future challenges.

School Service Delivery: Practical Tools for Assessing Your Results
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
All areas of speech-language pathology practice require practitioners to demonstrate their value and contributions with specific, measurable outcomes. Preschool and K-12 school settings are no exception. Indeed, the call for results-driven educational practices, systematic methods of measuring educational outcomes, and accountability has never been greater. This webinar will present practical tools for determining outcomes in school speech-language programs so SLPs can advocate with administrators, modify intervention practices, and improve communication with educators and parents. The framework emphasizes three interrelated areas of service delivery: (1) student outcomes, (2) interprofessional collaboration outcomes, and (3) systemic outcomes. Participants will focus on their own programs while learning to apply several practical outcomes-measurement tools – including satisfaction surveys, feedback forms, performance improvement plans, team assessments, progress monitoring, and more – that can improve their services for the benefit of their students.
Strengthening the Breadth and Depth of Your Collaboration With School Professionals
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
SLPs who work in preschool and K-12 school settings engage in interprofessional collaboration since they regularly partner with other professionals – teachers, assistants, school psychologists, occupational therapists, and others – to deliver services to students. In some cases, SLPs may find that these collaboration efforts could be enhanced. This webinar will present a fresh approach to planning and offering integrated, classroom-based services. The approach allows school clinicians to transform their programs by strengthening their relationships with fellow school professionals and improving the breadth, depth, and quality of collaboration that is already happening. The course will describe a unique, six-stage collaboration process that fosters a common frame of reference and meaningful relationships with education colleagues. Each stage incorporates a goal, ready-to-implement strategies, and interactive tools and resources SLPs can employ to encourage buy-in and engagement. Throughout the webinar, participants will be guided to think about the process from the perspective of their own role, organization, school culture, school partners, student population, services, and goals. Participants will create an action plan for reframing their own programs.

Grand Rounds in Cochlear Implant Candidacy
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
Over the years, cochlear implant candidacy has changed dramatically. When devices were first introduced, only patients with little to no ability to recognize speech were considered. Advances in technology and evolving ideas about who can benefit from a cochlear implant have expanded the candidate pool, which now can include adults and children with greater preoperative residual hearing, nontraditional candidates (such as those with additional disabilities), and “off label” patients who do not meet the approved indications for the device but could benefit nonetheless (such as those with single sided deafness or asymmetrical, progressive hearing loss). This course explains the candidacy changes in greater detail and provides guidelines to help professionals determine if a referral to a cochlear implant center is appropriate for a particular patient. The webinar outlines the roles of audiologists and SLPs in making these recommendations and also discusses how to counsel patients regarding their possible candidacy for a cochlear implant.
