In these articles, the authors explore augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) that are bilingual and use English as a second language. Authors also reflect on the cultural and diverse children that use AAC. McNamara considers the established research in bilingualism in the typically developing population and those with speech language disorders to propose guidelines for best practice in bilingual AAC. Yu reviews topics that include studies comparing the developmental outcomes between monolingual and bilingual children on the autism spectrum and studies on the role of home language development in English acquisition. The purpose of Mindel and John’s article is to increase the competency of school-based speech language pathologists who are increasingly working with culturally and linguistically diverse student populations using AAC. Johnston, O’Neill, and Schumann’s article provides interventionists with a strategy for comparing the efficiency of initial graphic symbol acquisition in an individual’s first and second language for English language learners who use AAC during functional communication training. McNamara considers the established research in bilingualism in the typically developing population and those with speech language disorders to propose guidelines for best practice in bilingual AAC. Wagner outlines some commonly heard questions and concerns professional and families share with regards to bilingual AAC intervention and shares some resources for selecting, customizing, and designing robust bilingual AAC system, strategies for teaching core words each month and ways to incorporate both paper-based and electronic-based AAC tools. Solomon-Rice and Soto discuss project scholars who receive evidence-based training in AAC assessment, AAC intervention, collaborative teaming, AAC applications supporting the language and literacy of culturally and linguistically diverse children, and professional development in collaborate AAC settings.

The first article discusses how electrophysiological measures can supplement traditional audiometric evaluation in assessment of age-related hearing loss (ARHL). Perceptual consequences of ARHL in part, can be attributed to a reduced ability to accurately process temporal and frequency cues of speech. The frequency following response and cortical-auditory evoked potential measures may be used to identify deficits in the neural processing of speech and guide management of ARHL. The second article shares current evidence supporting an association between cognitive impairment and hearing loss. Research is ongoing to determine whether management of hearing loss with amplification devices and auditory rehabilitation reduces the risk for cognitive decline. The third article highlights a novel pharmaceutical intervention for ARHL. Specifically, the paper focused on AUT00063, a small molecule that modifies a critical ion channel, Kv3, involved in repolarization of a neural action potential within the central auditory pathway. The final article focuses on the aspects of cognition that are most relevant to behavioral auditory research and provides an overview of cognitive hearing science, auditory neuroscience, and electrophysiological measures ideal for studying how the brain processes speech.

The article provided affiliates with novel information relevant to speech science, specifically room acoustics. In both practicing audiology and speech language pathology, as well as in speech and hearing science research, the space where the work is done is an integral part of the function. Hence, for all of these endeavors it can be important to measure the acoustics of a room. This article provided a tutorial regarding the measurement of room reverberation and background noise, both of which are important when evaluating a space’s strengths and limitations for speech communication. As the privacy of patients and research participants is a primary concern, the tutorial also describes a method for measuring the amount of acoustical insulation provided by a room’s barriers (walls, windows, and doors). Several room measurement data sets—all obtained from the assessment of clinical and research spaces within the authors’ department—are presented as examples in the article.

Hurting, Alper, and Berkowitz discussed the financial and ethical implications of preventable adverse events. The authors stress the need to use a multipronged approach, which increases awareness of and support for speech-language pathology services. Ogletree, McMurry, Schmidt, and Evans considered the three realities facing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) providers. These included: (a) users who are not homogeneous with respect to culture and language, (b) a traditional team-based AAC assessment process that may not be the preferred route, and (c) assumptions about AAC symbol transparency that are not supported by data. Caron, Holyfield, Light, and McNaughton explored displaced talk using video visual speech displays (VSDs). The findings revealed that there is potential in utilizing video VSD to support participation for displaced talk in individuals with autism spectrum disorder. When using VSD’s, the individual in the study takes more communication turns and is more engaged in his social interactions.

Telepractice can be a helpful tool in connecting remote and diverse communities to the specialized services they need. As telepractice expands access, it also increases the need for clinicians to be prepared to provide appropriate services to clients with a wider variety of cultural and linguistic influences. Additionally, service-providers must consider the interaction of the telepractice environment and a client’s cultural perceptions and needs. This Perspectives explored the theme of culturally and linguistically-responsive services through telepractice. The featured authors described a teleaudiology program in remote, Native Alaskan communities and shared an overview of policy, research, and resources to inform cultural considerations in speech-language telepractice services.

This Perspectives focused on the current cochlear implant candidacy for adults with hearing impairment. We reviewed factors such as bilateral implantation, bimodal stimulation, surgical improvements, MRI compatibility, insurance coverage, and cosmetic considerations. We discussed the benefit of preserving low-frequency hearing loss with the hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implant. Moreover, we examined potential contributors for loss of residual acoustic hearing with hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implantation in a subset of patients. Etiologies such as mechanical damage to cochlear structures, inflammation and apoptosis of hair cells, and alterations to blood flow were discussed. Audiologists should stay informed on implantable solutions to hearing loss and should recommend cochlear implant evaluation for patients that fit the expanded candidacy criteria.

We examined measurement techniques used to separate the transient-evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) response from the stimulus, and discussed how the nonlinear differential and the double-source, double-evoked techniques affect TEOAE characteristics. The significance of measuring the short latency component of the TEOAE was discussed. We explored the effects of oxaliplatin, cisplatin, and carboplatin on objective and subjective high-frequency auditory measures in adults. We shared how distortion-product otoacoustic emission (DPOAEs) and ultra-high frequency, pure-tone audiometry can be used to obtain a more comprehensive hearing profile and treatment plan for adults receiving platinum chemotherapies. Finally, we reviewed standard single- and multi-frequency tympanometry measures and wideband acoustic immittance (WAI) measurements, including wideband energy reflectance and wideband absorbance tympanometry. Normative and pathological findings WAI findings were shared. More detailed middle-ear assessments can be used as a screening and a diagnostic tool for middle ear disorders and for newborn hearing screening. Audiologists should include otoacoustic emission testing and multifrequency and wideband tympanometry in their clinical “toolkits.”

These two articles provide affiliates with novel information relevant to speech science research and education. Alison Behrman discusses how “research into speech production and perception of nonnative speakers has contributed to increased understanding of how we measure and interpret intelligibility, as well as the role of intelligibility in clinical decision-making.” She provides a brief overview of indexes of intelligibility and a summary of some of the research on the relationship of intelligibility and accentedness in nonnative speakers. Jennifer Dalton and Louise Keegan describe “the application of speech analysis software to increase students’ ability to discriminate and identify distinct dialectal differences between two dialects of English, Southern-American accented English and Irish-accented English. Students utilized both auditory-perceptual as well as acoustic data to reveal their own perceptual biases.” They report that the students “contextualized their findings by identifying potential cultural influences that were predictive of the accent differences [and that students] reported that this experience increased their awareness of cultural and linguistic differences and served as a precursor to their development of clinical expertise in determining dialectal difference versus disorder in individuals with potential communication disorders.”

The first three articles of this Perspectives focused on skills involved in formulating and documenting the execution of a dysphagia plan of care. These topics will not only serve as a best practice update to practicing speech-language pathologists (SLPs), but will also be of significant value to students learning dysphagia best practice. Patrick Henley leads the discussion on the SLPs skills in utilizing both behavioral and physiological frameworks in the formulation and documentation of a dysphagia plan of care. Nancy Swigert elaborated on the professionalism and skill that clinicians must practice when documenting their sessions with patients so that their notes can provide justice to the excellent, high-quality of care that they strive to provide to their patients. Advocating for, addressing, and treating feeding and swallowing disorders in a school setting can be supported significantly by the approach clinicians take to document services provided. Emily Homer and Christine Faust described this viewpoint in the second article. Finally, Carly Barbon, Dr. Andrew Hope, and Dr. Catriona Steele kept us abreast of the most updated synopsis on the utilization of radiation therapy and its characteristics as it relates to the treatment of head and neck cancers and guided clinicians on how to best utilize this knowledge and understanding in managing dysphagia, specific to each patient.

These three articles provide affiliates with novel information relevant to speech science research and education. Turner et al. present their investigation into the relationship between different levels of background noise and articulatory contact pressure (ACP), the latter representing one aspect of physiological effort during speech production. They report that physiological effort as indexed by ACP did not increase with increasing intensity. They provide both a detailed methodology for researchers interested in replicating the study and clinical implications for professionals interested in employing ACP in therapeutic intervention. Finan and Meinke report on their development of an interdisciplinary (speech-language pathology, audiology, and music) undergraduate-level course covering the physics and biophysics of sound production and reception with emphasis on music and speech, which incorporates issues related to auditory and vocal injury prevention. They provide a detailed description of the course’s learning outcomes, structure, and projects. They conclude with a discussion of the challenges and benefits of implementing this interdisciplinary course for instructors and students. Boyce describes the different vocabulary/terminology traditions that have the potential to cause serious confusion in students’ understanding of key clinical concepts. The author discusses three of the many vocabulary conflicts she has encountered as a teacher of speech science to undergraduate and graduate students: resonance, constriction, and aspiration. She argues that advising students of vocabulary conflicts ahead of time reduces wrong answers on tests, enables instructors to unravel the source of vocabulary misunderstandings, and increases students’ mastery of speech science concepts.

This Perspectives focused on cognition and hearing abilities in adults. We shared how working memory capacity and attention should be considered when selecting and programming amplification and providing aural rehabilitation for individuals with hearing loss. Individuals with higher working memory capacity are able to utilize fast-acting compression settings to aid in speech understanding in complex listening environments, while those with lower working memory can experience negative repercussions from such settings. Additionally, clinicians can counsel on cognitive effects on speech understanding and involve top-down strategies in their auditory training. We also examined the effects of aging on psychoacoustic performance, noting an association between cognition and discrimination abilities in older adults. Factors like impaired temporal processing and reduced frequency selectivity impact hearing abilities of adult clients in the clinic, but are rarely assessed in a standard hearing evaluation. Finally, we examine why pure-tone threshold testing is insufficient at predicting hearing handicap in the adults with minimal to mild hearing loss, and how to assess which of these individuals would benefit from rehabilitation and/or amplification. Factors such as previous noise exposure, age, working memory, ability to use conversational context, and speed of auditory processing are important to consider.

This Perspectives focused on minimal to mild hearing loss in infants and children. We summarized how mild transient hearing loss, when induced during a developmental critical period, can cause lingering impairment in auditory perception. An animal model was used to study how hearing loss affected cellular mechanics and processing in the auditory cortex, and how these changes resulted in perceptual deficits. We shared the current opinion on implications of minimal to mild permanent hearing loss (MMHL) in children, and how to determine the optimal management approach. Use of FM systems for MMHL and fitting recommendations were discussed. Finally, we presented how to determine whether hearing amplification is appropriate for an infant with mild bilateral hearing loss and discussed recommendations for fitting the hearing aids. We discussed additional factors of concomitant handicap, mobility considerations, listening environment, and family readiness and motivation, which should be considered when determining the optimal hearing management approach for an infant with mild bilateral hearing loss.
