Event Date:
9/24/2019
Format(s): Live Webinar, Live Webinar (Group)
ASHA CEUs:
0.2
2.0
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.

While the definition of executive function (EF) varies in the literature, it includes, at its core, the skills people use to plan, organize, problem-solve, and set and achieve goals in their daily lives. EF skills start developing in early childhood, and children with EF dysfunction experience social and academic difficulties. This journal self-study explores issues related to the development of EF skills as well as principles and practical strategies for EF assessment and intervention in preschool and school-age children. It also presents an argument for the role of EF in social communication and discusses ways that SLPs can address these skills in treatment. SLPs working with children with EF deficits can use this information to improve assessment techniques and plan intervention strategies to better meet the needs of these children.

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.

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.

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.

Improving Reading and Writing in People With Aphasia
Format(s): Journal (Online)
ASHA CEUs:

3.5
Adults with aphasia present with a wide array of communication challenges, including difficulty with written language. Written language challenges often do not receive as much clinical attention as spoken language difficulties, but they can have a significant impact on daily activities, such as reading the newspaper or restaurant menus, writing notes, and completing forms. This journal self-study explores treatment approaches to improve reading and writing skills in people with aphasia. The articles explore the use of texting to improve spelling ability, the use of direct attention training to address reading comprehension, strategies for targeting phonological deficits to improve oral reading, and the ever-growing concern about the cost effectiveness of aphasia treatments and how best to demonstrate the benefits of these services to payers and others who request justification.

School Re-Entry After Mild TBI: Helping Students Transition
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
ASHA CEUs:
0.2
2.0
Students who have had a concussion or other mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) often experience cognitive changes that contribute to persistent negative impacts on attention, memory, processing speed, and other aspects of cognition and language. Because these deficits are subtle and frequently under- or misidentified, they can have a significant impact on students’ return to school. This program will provide SLPs who work in schools or health care settings with an understanding of services that need to be provided for the proper identification, evaluation, and management of these deficits in students with a mild TBI. The webinar will review hospital-to-school transition planning, how deficits may manifest within the school environment and affect academic performance, and interventions that may be necessary for successful re-entry into academic settings.

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.
