Summary: This SIG 19 activity bundles four articles providing perspectives on a broad variety of topics in speech-language pathology. First, Holt provides an overview of current and historical discussions of gender and race, challenging the reader to accept that one’s perspective is indebted to a specific belief system. Readers are to evaluate how gender and race are used to categorize people and examine whether a member of a marginalized or minoritized group affects that person’s access to or use of intervention services. Next, Cox and Koenig define speech privacy and provide a brief history and applications in the health care setting. A general perspective is outlined, including threats to speech privacy, and speakers who use an electrolarynx are used as an example to highlight specific issues clinicians may encounter. Ramanarayanan et al. discuss the use of speech as a biomarker in therapy and research. In summary, robustness of analytics—specificity, diversity, and physiological interpretability—must be further developed. Finally, Weerathunge, Tomassi, and Stepp review a number of populations with voice disorders that have been studied using altered auditory feedback. Many have hyperactive auditory feedback responses and the differing underling reasons are reviewed. Therapy considerations are also described.

Summary: It is well known within our field that identifying voice and upper airway specialized training opportunities and subsequent positions is challenging, competitive, and sometimes elusive. In this SIG 3 activity, various pathways to specializing in voice and upper airway disorders are explored from the viewpoint of different authors at various stages of their careers. The hope is to make the process of specialization more transparent and share components that have contributed to success, while also highlighting the diversity of training and experience that is so important in our field.

Summary: The articles in this journal self-study focus on the characterization and clinical management of aphasia, one theme that researchers explored in the 2020 Clinical Aphasiology Conference (CAC) forum. Published in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, these articles present cutting-edge research and discussion on word finding difficulties, sematic processing, and spoken discourse.

Summary: Many clinicians find themselves responsible for supervising students, externs, clinical fellows, other clinicians, or support personnel, but have little or no training on clinical education and supervision. This course presents an updated version of the nine core "building blocks" that are essential elements of every supervision experience.

Summary: This session explores effective techniques and resources to help children with selective mutism (SM), an anxiety-based disorder that significantly impacts a child's ability to speak in certain contexts, make progress in school and beyond. The speaker reviews myths and facts about SM and explores the SLP's role in working with children with this disorder. The session includes assessment tips, evidence-based treatment strategies, and ways to support carryover of skills to other contexts and with caregivers and school staff.

Summary: This session explores how hearing level, device use, and room acoustics alter the potential for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing to have auditory access to classroom instruction. The speaker focuses on how access to instruction for children who are who are Deaf or hard of hearing changes with social distancing and mask-wearing and shares creative solutions to real-life barriers to implementing strategies that improve communication.

Summary: Due process hearings are legal procedures established in special education to provide for resolution when the parents and school personnel disagree. This session reviews ethical principles associated with due process and the legal responsibilities associated with being a witness in a due process hearing. The speaker shares strategies for preventing and resolving disputes and representing ourselves, our students, and our profession equitably when called into a hearing.

Summary: This session explores assessment and treatment of executive function deficits in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) utilizing a language-based approach. The speaker presents research-based strategies that help SLPs view executive functioning deficits-and how to effectively treat them-from a new perspective.
Presenter(s): Christina D Bradburn, MS, CCC-SLP

Summary: This session shares easy-to-implement strategies for more diverse service delivery models, including classroom-based services. The speaker explores flexible scheduling examples, using the curriculum to target speech and language targets, and the art of collecting authentic data in integrated settings. Participants will leave this session with "use tomorrow" strategies as well as the confidence to make classroom-based service delivery work for clinicians and students.

Summary: This session explores clinical considerations for successfully evaluating and treating phonological awareness deficits in children with speech sound disorders. The speaker identifies various phonological awareness skills and shares ideas for how to successfully integrate phonological awareness practice into speech intervention sessions and classroom-based lessons, particularly for children with speech sound disorders.
