Improving Hearing Aid Outcomes Through Patient Self-Efficacy
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Despite best practices, many clients eventually discontinue using their hearing aids. Though a number of reasons may explain this behavior, declining patient satisfaction is perhaps one of the most significant. The articles in this journal self-study explore ways to improve hearing aid outcomes by targeting patient satisfaction through increased self-efficacy. The first article establishes an overall framework for client satisfaction by identifying essential concepts underlying hearing aid management. The second article describes a new area of research regarding self-fitting, which promotes self-efficacy by involving clients in adjusting their own hearing aids from day 1. The third article examines psychosocial benefits and improved satisfaction resulting from hearing aid trials. The final article empirically tests the connection between self-efficacy of specific management skills and hearing aid satisfaction.

Improving Speech Skills Using Curriculum Content
Format(s): Streaming Video
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Clinicians frequently find that children with speech sound disorders progress in intervention more slowly than desired, or they may make expected progress within sessions but not carry over or generalize improved speech skills to their daily activities. There is some evidence that using normalized speech sound intervention – treatment activities that reflect the real-world activities and interactions in which children communicate – can lead to more rapid increases in intelligibility. This course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to implement normalized speech sound intervention using age and developmentally appropriate curriculum-based learning activities in which the production of speech sound targets is integrated in meaningful verbal and social interactions.

Advancements in Pediatric Single-Word Speech Assessment
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.4
4.0
As caseloads grow and diversify, clinicians may question whether they are equipped with the necessary tools to address changing demands when it comes to working with children with speech sound disorders. The single-word naming task is a basic component of pediatric speech production assessment, but is there an adequate evidence base behind the use of single-word naming tools for all populations served? Are the items found in these assessments necessary and sufficient to diagnose speech sound disorders? The four articles in this journal self-study address such questions. The first article uses item response theory to examine which single-word items in a standardized assessment are most clinically informative. The second article is a systematic review of current speech sound production practices for children with autism spectrum disorder and ends with recommendations for assessment with this population. The third article examines whether assessments that are normed on monolingual kindergarteners are diagnostically sensitive for bilingual children with suspected speech sound disorders. Lastly, the fourth article reviews the relatively new literature on polysyllable assessment and provides detailed procedures for implementation.

Remediating Rhotic Distortions: Moving Beyond Traditional Approaches
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
School-based clinicians generally agree that /r/ is one of the most challenging speech sounds to remediate. Despite research showing how persistent rhotic distortions can affect students’ social, academic, and even future employment prospects, some children are discharged from services because traditional approaches simply fail to work. This journal self-study offers a response to the frustration often experienced by clinicians and clients struggling with persistent errors by showcasing some exciting new methods in /r/ intervention. Three articles describe promising results of different types of biofeedback-visual-acoustic, ultrasound, and electropalatographic interventions that are gradually becoming more accessible to clinicians. These articles also explore how biofeedback methods and other intervention modifications can adapt the principles of motor learning to increase efficacy of articulation intervention. The fourth article is an exploration of self-entrainment theory to promote speech sound change through the use of hand gestures.

Gesture Use in Young Children With Atypical Language Development
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
It is well-established that the use of gesture is a precursor to language development. But what exactly is the relationship between gesture and language, and can the nature of this relationship be used diagnostically to better understand a child’s language development? This journal self-study examines these questions across a few populations. Two articles look at young children with specific language impairment or delay, and the combined results of these studies offer a complimentary view of the relationship between gesture and language based on the observed linguistic deficit (receptive or expressive). Another article compares gesture use between children with impaired hearing vs. peers with typical hearing. Findings from this study not only describe the use of gesture in young children with hearing impairment but also provide clinically useful information about caregivers’ responses to these gestures. The final article examines gesture use in girls with Rett syndrome. In addition to providing a helpful tutorial on a lesser-known population, the authors suggest how factors such as motor skills and genetics also contribute to the relationship between gesture and language.

Stuttering Intervention for Children: Modifications to Two Common Programs
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Stuttering is a particularly challenging speech disorder that can have a significant impact on a child’s self-esteem, social interactions, and academic success. Many treatment programs and techniques exist to address stuttering, and clinicians are always looking for new and better ways to help children with this disorder. This journal self-study explores the use of two specific programs – the Lidcombe and Camperdown programs – in modified situations. Articles examine the Lidcombe Program, designed for younger (preschool and some school-age) children, and discuss how clinicians can adapt the program for use in groups and for webcam delivery. A third article explores the factors that may best predict treatment time and long-term outcomes. The Camperdown Program, a treatment more often used for teens, is studied as a telehealth application to determine outcomes and child and parent reactions. SLPs working with children who stutter will benefit from a better understanding of how these programs work and how they can be adapted for more resource-efficient treatment.

Psychosocial Effects of Stuttering
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Stuttering is a multifaceted disorder that can have a significant impact on people who stutter, one that extends beyond the actual communication difficulties these individuals encounter. Social, emotional, and psychological issues can accompany stuttering, largely as a result of society’s depictions of and reactions to those who stutter. This journal self-study addresses these non-speech factors that speech-language pathologists often address during treatment, including the stigma associated with stuttering, the impact of stuttering on quality of life, and how the use of safety behaviors may actually inhibit the reduction of issues like anxiety. One article also provides an alternative perspective, suggesting that while some people who stutter may experience some of these psychosocial issues, they may not identify them as personally significant or wish to address them in treatment. While most of the information addresses the adult stuttering population, the concepts presented apply to children as well, and clinicians working with people of all ages who stutter will find clinically relevant information that they can begin to incorporate into their client interactions.

Stuttering is a challenging speech disorder that can have a significant impact on the life of the person who stutters. This journal self-study addresses issues that have been identified in the literature regarding how reliable stuttering measures actually are and how clinicians are trained to make these determinations. In addition, this course explores some newer treatment methods, using virtual reality and an approach that is different from the typical prolonged speech treatment often used. Clinicians will come away with a better understanding of the importance of measuring what they intend to measure, how training impacts measurement, and how new treatment options may assist clients who stutter.

Treatment for Acquired Apraxia of Speech: Understanding the Evidence
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:

3.5
Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) is a motor speech disorder caused by brain damage, such as from a stroke, and can range from only slight difficulty saying sounds and words to a complete inability to produce sound. Speech-language pathologists working with people with AOS often struggle to determine which treatments will work best to help those with this frustrating disorder. This journal self-study explores the research behind AOS treatment through an updated systematic review of the literature on AOS and exploration of outcomes of treatment for AOS that has been described in single-subject research. In addition, a discussion of a treatment using auditory masking is included, which builds upon and adds to the research on speech motor control. Clinicians will be able to apply the information in these articles to the treatment they provide and add to their arsenal of evidence-based treatment tools with confidence.

This course includes five recorded sessions from the 2015 online conference “Social Communication: Development, Assessment, and Intervention for Preschoolers Through Adolescents.” Three sessions describe the key characteristics of children and adolescents with social communication disorders and discuss how cognitive, social, and emotional development as well as deficits in social cognition, theory of mind, and executive function contribute to communication difficulties. Two additional sessions focus on interventions for two specific groups of young children – kids with autism spectrum disorder who need help with joint attention and peer interactions, and young children with average to above-average language and cognition who have social-cognitive challenges. The conference included a total of 14 sessions, with the broad goal of giving professionals apply-today tools to assess and treat kids with social communication difficulties.

Methods of Bilingual Language Assessment: Beyond Standardized Testing
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:

4.0
This journal self-study explores approaches to language assessment of bilingual children that attempt to improve and go beyond traditional standardized testing. Articles discuss the use of dynamic assessment, conceptual scoring, and language sample analysis to more accurately identify and diagnose bilingual language impairments. And one article looks at how to revise cutoff scores on standardized tests in English to better identify language impairments in bilingual children. Clinicians with experience conducting bilingual assessments will be able to add these techniques to current assessment protocols, while those with more limited experience will benefit from learning about these procedures and exploring how to incorporate them into the assessment process.

Increasing Oral and Literate Language Skills of Children in Poverty
Format(s): Streaming Video
ASHA CEUs:
0.4
4.0
This session will discuss the effects of poverty on low-socioeconomic-status (SES) children and investigate whether academic underachievement is caused by language impairment, environmental factors, or a combination of both. In order to differentiate language impairment from language difference based on environmental factors, participants will learn how to get away from knowledge-based testing and conduct dynamic assessment of information processing skills. We will address the issue of building oral and literate vocabulary skills in low-SES children and discuss how to build executive functioning skills as well. Increasing academic achievement and helping students in poverty meet new Common Core State Standards in language will be emphasized.
