Perspectives, SIG 6, Vol. 1, Part 2, 2016
Format(s): SIG Perspectives and Exam
CEUs:

This Perspectives focused on cognition and hearing abilities in adults. We shared how working memory capacity and attention should be considered when selecting and programming amplification and providing aural rehabilitation for individuals with hearing loss. Individuals with higher working memory capacity are able to utilize fast-acting compression settings to aid in speech understanding in complex listening environments, while those with lower working memory can experience negative repercussions from such settings. Additionally, clinicians can counsel on cognitive effects on speech understanding and involve top-down strategies in their auditory training. We also examined the effects of aging on psychoacoustic performance, noting an association between cognition and discrimination abilities in older adults. Factors like impaired temporal processing and reduced frequency selectivity impact hearing abilities of adult clients in the clinic, but are rarely assessed in a standard hearing evaluation. Finally, we examine why pure-tone threshold testing is insufficient at predicting hearing handicap in the adults with minimal to mild hearing loss, and how to assess which of these individuals would benefit from rehabilitation and/or amplification. Factors such as previous noise exposure, age, working memory, ability to use conversational context, and speed of auditory processing are important to consider.

In these articles, authors will explore whether or not the use of neuroplastic principles would improve the swallow motor plan and produce positive outcomes of a patient in severe cognitive decline. Additionally, authors will explain the benefits of computer-mediated cognitive-communicative interventions for residents of Special Care Units with advanced dementia, designed to enhance safety by reducing fall risk and promoting participation in activities of daily living with increased independence. Finally, readers will learn how to effectively approach program policy creation and implementation in the long-term care setting.

This issue of Perspectives focuses on the management of bothersome tinnitus. Fagelson provides a rationale for establishing interprofessional teams and referral networks and the need to prepare audiologists confident in counseling and interprofessional collaboration. Husain, Tai, and Finnegan briefly review literature on the emotional underpinnings of chronic bothersome tinnitus and the emerging evidence regarding therapies that focus on psychological or mental health by incorporating a “mindfulness” aspect, cognitive-behavioral methodology or an exercise regimen for the management of tinnitus symptoms. Newman and Sandridge describe components of an integrated care path developed at the Cleveland Clinic for patients in their Tinnitus Management Clinic (TMC) and demonstrate how interprofessional collaborative clinical practice may be incorporated to achieve best practice outcomes. Wise and Ma review apps currently marketed for smartphones to manage tinnitus symptoms and address the need for research to support their efficacy.

In these articles, authors explore the theme of working with students who are English Language Learners, the first article focuses on the disability perceptions of families of children with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. It provides an overview of the results of interviews with 10 families and reports themes related to diverse beliefs about the causes of disability. It explains how families' perceptions of disability influence their interaction with professionals and access to services. The authors recommend strategies for speech-language pathologists working with families. This Part also provides public school clinicians with information about post-school outcomes for students with disabilities. Transition services and post-school outcomes is another theme of our continuing education topics this year. The article reviews evidence-based practices and predictors of post-school outcomes for secondary students with disabilities. It explains how speech-language pathologists can implement the identified practices in support of post-school outcomes for students with disabilities.

This Perspectives addressed the topic of language assessment through telepractice, which may be of particular interest to speech-language pathologists, clinical training programs, and students. Blaiser shared the results of a survey that looked at the types of evaluations telepractitioners used to assess young children who are Deaf/hard-of-hearing. Sutherland and colleagues discussed the results of an Australian study in which school-age students were administered a formal language assessment. The authors offered recommendations for overcoming barriers to effective remote evaluations.

Susan Brady led with a discussion of adult learning components that facilitate skill acquisition for dysphagia practice. Karen Ball and Dr. Luis Riquelme discussed current trends in teaching graduate level courses that strive to meet the challenges of training novel clinicians to enter the world of clinical fellowship and practice dysphagia management. Elise Wagner and Dr. Georgia Malandraki presented a prototype Dysphagia Research Clinic developed at Teachers College of Columbia University. Wendy Chase and Dr. Lucinda Soares Gonzales reviewed several strategies that encourage a successful health care practicum experience for students. In the final article, Drs. Sia, Halan, Lok, and Crary presented a unique and innovative pedagogic approach that used virtual patient simulation to train clinicians to practice in the area of dysphagia.
