Gesture Use in Young Children With Atypical Language Development
Format(s): Journal (Online)
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.

Variations in Language Skills in Children and Teens With ASD
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs:
0.4
4.0
While social communication deficits are prominent in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), both spoken and written language are also often affected. These language difficulties can be marked or subtle and can affect academic and social success. This journal self-study explores the ways that language deficits may present in higher-functioning children and teens with ASD and how the presence of autism may lead to differences in gesture use, making inferences from text, vocabulary, storytelling, and conversational skills. Clinicians working with children and adolescents with ASD can use this research to better identify variations in these skills and plan interventions to address the differences that impact school and interpersonal performance.

Tools for Assessing Tinnitus
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs:
0.35
3.5
Tinnitus, commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” occurs for a variety of reasons and may be temporary, intermittent, or constant. The presence of tinnitus may have a significant life impact, depending on the severity of the tinnitus, personality factors, and other issues that affect the person’s daily activities. As there is no instrumental method to assess tinnitus at this time, questionnaires are commonly used to determine the presence and severity of tinnitus and to inform intervention. This journal self-study explores a number of tinnitus screening tools that have been developed to improve existing evaluation processes and increase assessment options. Audiologists who work with adults with tinnitus will learn more about available instruments, including how to access them, if possible, as well as factors to consider when counseling individuals with this disorder.

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.

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.

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.
