Psychosocial Effects of Stuttering
Format(s): Journal (Online)
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.

Success for Students With High-Functioning Autism
Format(s): Streaming Video
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
This course focuses on the impact of Theory of Mind on effective social-pragmatic communication for children and adolescents with high-functioning autism. The course describes the typical Theory of Mind deficits among this population – including tact, proxemics, social rules, egocentricity, naiveté, and jocularity – as well as social communication deficits and issues associated with social-emotional regulation that this population often exhibits. The course then explores the unique assessments and interventions that can address the specific deficits and challenges of students with high-functioning autism, which are distinct from those of students with more severe autism. The course discusses in detail best practices in social-pragmatic assessment and evidence-based treatment strategies and techniques that SLPs can put into practice to equip students to overcome social skills deficits.

Advances in Stuttering Measurement and Treatment for Adults
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
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)
CEUs: 0.35
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.

Influences on Social Communication and Interventions for Young Children
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.4
4.0
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)
CEUs: 0.4
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 revising 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.

Improving Reading and Writing in People With Aphasia
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.35
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.

Increasing Oral and Literate Language Skills of Children in Poverty
Format(s): DVD and Manual, Streaming Video
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.

Genetics and Hearing Loss: An Overview
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
This course includes three recordings to expand audiologists' and other professionals' understanding of genetics and its influence on diagnosing and treating various forms of hearing loss. First, we'll walk through the basic building blocks of genetics—DNA, RNA, and proteins—to understand how organisms grow and function, and how traits and diseases are inherited. The course will then cover current information regarding epidemiologic characteristics of hereditary hearing loss, including incidence and prevalence of genetic hearing loss, summary of etiologies, inheritance patterns, proportion of syndromic versus nonsyndromic forms, important nomenclature, and progress in gene identification. The course will also examine pedigree symbols and construction, and address how to use pedigrees as a tool in clinical practice. These recordings originally appeared in the 2014 online conference “Audiology 2014: Genetics and Hearing Loss.”

Assessment and Intervention of Communication in Children Birth–5: A Developmental Approach
Format(s): DVD and Manual, Additional Manual(s)
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
Children learn language in the context of spontaneous, social interactions, making language acquisition embedded in the affective, cognitive, and social domains. However, language comprehension is often overlooked. To develop effective assessment and intervention strategies, it is critical for SLPs to understand developmental communication milestones and rely on a child’s non-verbal behaviors, even though the behaviors may not be a reliable predictor in the context of the child’s full developmental profile.

The Case for the Narrow View of Reading
Format(s): Journal (Online), Journal (Print)
CEUs: 0.4
4.0
The fundamental problem with a broad view of reading is that it conflates two very different abilities—word recognition and comprehension. The narrow view restricts the scope of reading to word recognition, thereby focusing on a skill that can be taught to all students except those with most severe disabiliities. This clinical forum presents a rationale for embracing the narrow view of reading, followed by responses from leading researchers and clinicians.
