Identifying, Assessing, and Treating Dyslexia: What SLPs Need to Know
Format(s): Journal (Online)
As a result of recent laws and regulations, more SLPs in schools are treating children with dyslexia. The journal articles in this self-study – from an October 2018 Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools clinical forum on dyslexia – provide “state-of-the-science” information to help SLPs understand dyslexia in relation to other speech and language disorders, as well as ways to identify, assess, and treat this disorder. Clinicians will find practical tips that they can immediately incorporate into practice.
Capitalizing on Children’s Learning Patterns for Fast, Effective Language Intervention
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Taking into account children’s learning processes is important when SLPs design interventions aimed at teaching new skills or expanding abilities. This journal self-study – based on a special issue of Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools – focuses on the type of learning that happens implicitly and quickly, without effort or even the knowledge that we are learning. This type of learning – known as statistical learning – refers to the way that children recognize patterns in the world around them. As language is full of patterns, this type of learning plays a large role in how children learn sound production, words, grammatical structures, and more. The articles in this selfstudy explore how SLPs can capitalize on implicit learning processes during intervention to help learning happen faster.

Identifying Developmental Language Disorder in Linguistically Diverse Schools
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Although clinicians have long understood the risks of misidentifying an English learner or nonmainstream dialect speaker with language impairment, research to date has lacked a more nuanced view of assessment within diverse populations. Specifically, practitioners need the knowledge and tools to diagnose “disorder within difference,” a concept that is introduced and then exemplified in this journal self-study course, based on a Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools clinical forum. The authors of the articles examine a variety of assessment and screening tools used with children of varying linguistic backgrounds, including speakers of rural southern dialects, speakers of African American English, and Spanish-English bilingual children.
Cutting-Edge Issues in Audiology: Patient-Centered Care and Service Delivery for Older Adults
Format(s): eWorkshop
This course includes seven recorded sessions from the online conference “Audiology 2017: Cutting-Edge Perspectives in Service Delivery for Older Adults.” Taken together, these sessions illustrate the benefits of patient-centered care and how to incorporate this perspective in your service delivery. The sessions also offer other tips and tools for improving service delivery more generally to provide better outcomes for older adults with hearing loss. The conference included a total of 17 sessions, with the broad goal of presenting audiologists with innovative approaches to managing hearing loss and improving service delivery for this population.

Early Identification and Intervention for Young Children With Autism
Format(s): Streaming Video
As the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) continues to rise, clinicians are looking for practical strategies to enhance communication and play skills in infants and young children with ASD. This course explores the characteristics of ASD in infants and toddlers and presents screening and assessment tools as well a framework for setting intervention priorities. You’ll also learn ways to enhance collaboration with caregivers and other professionals.
Specific Language Impairment in Special Populations
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Proper diagnosis of specific language impairment (SLI) in children is essential for elucidating possible causal pathways of language impairments, assessment for identification of language impairments, linguistic dimensions of language impairments, and long-term outcomes. This journal self-study contains articles from a Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research supplement that describe SLI in detail, as well as highlight a few clinical areas in which this approach has been applied. Increased knowledge of SLIs together with evidence-based assessment strategies can assist practitioners in identifying and overcoming challenges faced by children with concomitant health conditions or nonmainstream language backgrounds.
Complex Cases in Adult Dysphagia: Special Populations
Format(s): eWorkshop
This course includes four recorded sessions from the 2015 online conference “Complex Cases in Adult Dysphagia.” These sessions focus on assessment and treatment of dysphagia in medically complex patient populations, including individuals with developmental disabilities, people with severe blast-related traumatic brain injury and polytrauma, and patients who have undergone radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. The conference included a total of 12 sessions, with the broad goal of giving SLPs evidence-based skills to manage tough cases, develop clinical intuition, and determine the most appropriate plan for a patient's individual condition.
