Evaluating and treating children with selective mutism (SM) presents challenges. These children have the ability to speak but may not do so in social situations where they feel uncomfortable and are expected to speak. A substantial number of children with SM have speech-language deficits and vocal tension, affecting their ability to vocalize and verbalize. To determine a child’s actual communication abilities and plan appropriate treatment, it is important to conduct a comprehensive evaluation with expressive output. This webinar describes a validated evaluation procedure and treatment methods to improve vocal output, enhance meaningful verbalizations, and expand language in individuals with SM.

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.

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.

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.

The sentence-level framework is based on four key concepts about how sentences work. Each concept represents a “functional chunk” of language – a meaningful unit comprised of multiple words. We will define and anchor each concept using concrete language and visual imagery that aid students’ conceptual understanding. We also will illustrate how each concept can be taught using direct instruction followed by instruction in “real time” that draws naturally from curriculum-based materials.

This webinar will explore an expanded approach to dysphagia assessment and treatment designed to maximize an individual’s eating and swallowing safety, efficiency, and pleasure. Traditional management approaches typically view dysphagia as a mechanical and/or physiologic problem. By contrast, the expanded approach explained in the webinar strives to give the clinician a more holistic portrait of the patient’s lived experience with dysphagia. The expanded approach to evaluation incorporates a wider array of measurement tools from across health care domains while maximizing efficiency so the broader assessment does not require additional time. The expanded approach to treatment includes recommendations for diet changes as well as tips for facilitating the use of evidence-based practices.

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.

Assessing Acquired Apraxia of Speech: Practical Solutions to Common Challenges
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
ASHA CEUs:
0.2
2.0
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
ASHA CEUs:

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.

Grand Rounds in Cochlear Implant Candidacy
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
ASHA CEUs:
0.2

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.
