This issue contains two articles. First, authors describe a procedure for completing and applying electrically evoked stapedial reflex threshold (ESRT) measures, objective measures that correlates to upper comfort/stimulation (C/M) levels, to cochlear implant programing. The authors explain evidence, research, set-up, equipment, and procedural practices for ESRTs. Next, authors focus on speech, language, and hearing professionals who provide informational counseling for individuals with hearing loss to facilitate success in a variety of settings. The focus and content of the information changes throughout the life of the individual from initial diagnosis through young adulthood. These shifts, guided by speech-language pathologists in collaboration with professionals from multiple disciplines who work with this population, can help to maximize a successful life trajectory.

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.

This Perspectives, shared two insightful articles that could influence clinical care decisions. The first article discussed the ambiguity in the diagnosis of an auditory processing disorder and what to consider when selecting a diagnostic test. This article defined the “gold standard” test and elaborated on diagnostic accuracy research. The second article detailed the prevalence and indicators of dementia. Research suggests that hearing loss is a potential modifiable factor for dementia. This article reviewed considerations for hearing assessment, counseling, and communicating with patients with dementia. Audiologists play an important role in differentiating communicative behaviors associated with hearing loss from those of dementia and can assist in optimizing hearing and safety of persons with dementia.

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.

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.

Many individuals who stutter can learn fairly quickly, often in just a few sessions, how to produce fluent speech. However, the relapse rate is common, and people who stutter frequently complain of being unable to maintain the desired level of fluency once they leave the clinic. In this course, Lourdes Ramos-Heinrichs will present three strategies that SLPs can use when working with adolescents and adults who stutter to help these clients sustain desired levels of fluency and carry over the fluent speech to everyday speaking situations and when conversing with diverse groups. The course will introduce and discuss the use of clinical self-reports as well as techniques from solution-focused brief therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy to help address the affective and behavioral challenges that may interfere with clients’ fluency. You’ll walk away with practical strategies to implement in your clinical practice.

Early intervention supports a child and his or her family by promoting the child’s learning and development within the context of the family’s everyday routines. One crucial piece in successful early intervention is building the family’s capacity to engage in activities that foster communication development in the child. In this course, Dathan Rush will provide the purpose, rationale, and protocol for coaching parents of young children in natural learning environments to foster speech and language development. Using video analysis and discussion, the course will demonstrate how to implement the five evidence-based characteristics of the coaching interaction style with parents of children receiving early intervention services. You’ll walk away with tools for implementing coaching strategies with families on your caseload.

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.

Collaborating with interpreters is often an important step when working with individuals who speak a language other than English. Although bilingual SLPs and audiologists may be familiar with an individual’s native language, a skilled interpreter may be helpful to assist during the evaluation process. There is almost no research on collaborating with interpreters in audiology and speech-language pathology, and most professionals have not been adequately trained to collaborate with an interpreter. In this session, Henriette Langdon offers SLPs and audiologists helpful, evidence-based strategies for working with interpreters, based on research that has been conducted in other fields, including medicine and law, as well as across disciplines at international conferences. You will walk away with practical strategies to ensure that your time with clients who require interpreters is used effectively.

Many SLPs face the challenge of assessing and evaluating English language learners (ELLs) whose primary language they do not know in order to ascertain whether students are manifesting a language difference or a language impairment. There are no formal tests to administer to ELLs who speak a language such as Vietnamese, Tagalog, or Russian, but SLPs must find a way to evaluate the student in a legal, nonbiased manner. In this session, Celeste Roseberry-McKibbin provides practical tools that SLPs can use with ELLs ages 3-18 from any language background. The course also touches on intervention, specifically language of intervention and practical strategies for increasing the vocabulary skills of ELLs with language impairments.

All behavior is learned, and most behavior is communicative. Many learners with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have difficulty communicating basic and complex needs, which often results in inappropriate behavior to convey messages. Professionals can support students with ASD by examining contextual features of inappropriate behavior in order to understand its message and then teaching students how to use more effective and efficient communication skills instead. While seemingly straightforward, this functional approach to improving communication skills requires careful consideration of several critical factors. In this session, Jason Travers will explore the communicative nature of behavior and provide suggestions for simple interventions to support socially appropriate communication that improves behavior and quality of life.

While technology has changed the fabric of modern life, many SLPs have yet to fully realize the benefits of technology in rehabilitation of patients with aphasia. Recent advances in technology – particularly the development of smartphone and tablet apps – have allowed a transition away from the traditional flash card-based therapy for aphasia rehabilitation. Technology also facilitates the collection of remote, periodic behavioral data, giving clinicians better insight into patient outcomes beyond the clinical session. In this course, Swathi Kiran provides an overview of how technology-based treatment options for aphasia are gaining momentum, presents the evidence base, and illustrates how patients and SLPs alike can use mobile apps and other technologies to improve outcomes.

The labels we use to describe the consistency of liquid or the texture of food used in dysphagia management are subjective, but delivering food or water of inappropriate consistencies presents a serious safety risk. Common terminology with clear definitions, and practical measurement guidelines could improve patient safety. The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) provides a new framework for classifying and labeling food and drink consistency as well as simple tests that can be used by clinicians, food service professionals and caregivers to confirm the characteristics of a food or drink item before it is served to a person with dysphagia. The framework facilitates clear communication across clinicians, hospitals, cities, and international borders and illustrates the practical value of international engagement.
