Summary: Emergent learners who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) – no matter their age – can benefit from literacy instruction. This webinar reviews important elements of literacy and language instruction, especially for those who are early in their AAC use and language development. The presenter discusses the elements of a strong literacy curriculum – including a voice for all, learner engagement, an enthused knowledgeable reader, the alphabet, actual text, and shared environments and experiences – and how SLPs can incorporate them when working with AAC users on language and literacy goals.

Summary: Robust language sampling provides a treasure trove of information about children’s syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic skills. But time is a challenge when completing this form of assessment. This webinar describes strategies busy SLPs can use to squeeze the most information from a language sample in an efficient manner. The speaker reviews five essential language sampling assessment steps: Collect-Listen-Decide-Analyze-Compare.

Summary: Audiologists and speech-language pathologists may or may not be aware that an individual has been exposed to one or more types of maltreatment, including emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse and/or neglect. Maltreatment influences an individual’s neurobiological structure and function; cognitive processes such as attention, memory, social cognition, and executive function; as well as communication development and behavior. This webinar will explore the incidence of maltreatment; developmental outcomes; assessment, intervention, and prevention strategies; and the role of communication professionals.

Summary: Paraeducators are consistent communication partners who can be powerful extenders to support long-term student goals like independence and engagement. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute activities – the presenter will demonstrate an observational process school SLPs can use to support effective collaboration with paraeducators to increase students’ generalization of communication skills. Then the presenter will guide you through actionable steps to put the process into practice and reflect on the outcomes.

Summary: Writing meaningful social communication goals can be difficult, but using a strengths-based framework can make it a bit easier. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute activities – the presenter will utilize a goals rubric to help school SLPs write meaningful and measurable social communication goals that support independence and engagement as long-term objectives. Then the presenter will guide you through actionable steps to use the rubric to write student goals and reflect on the outcomes.

Summary: Dynamic assessment, which seeks to identify a child’s individual skills and learning potential, can be a useful but labor-intensive process. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute activities – the presenter will demonstrate how you can efficiently collect data through dynamic assessment using the META (Match – Extend – Try it – Assess) Map tool to extend and expand on the student’s communicative strengths. Then the presenter will guide you through actionable steps to use the tool and reflect on the results.

Summary: SLPs often operate from a deficits perspective due to the practical need to focus on assessment and qualification for services. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – the presenter will demonstrate how to focus on students’ communicative strengths in order to build rapport with students and foster positive, collaborative relationships with other stakeholders. Then the presenter will guide you through actionable steps to practice using a series of checklists to identify a student’s strengths and reflect on the results.

Summary: Accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) can be challenging for seasoned and newer clinicians alike. How do we efficiently and effectively assemble and grow our CAS “toolkit”? This webinar will discuss practical tips – rooted in the principles of evidence-based practice – to strengthen SLPs’ diagnosis and treatment of CAS to enhance child outcomes.

Summary: This webinar will discuss the anatomical, physiological, neurological, and cognitive factors that affect the speech intelligibility of children and adolescents with Down syndrome. Although there are similarities among people who have this genetic disorder, evaluation and treatment are highly individualized based on specific factors that influence a particular individual’s speech. The speaker will discuss evaluation and treatment planning, including forms that clinicians can use right away in their own practice.

Summary: Voice disorders are a prevalent and persistent problem in older adults. As the number of people over age 65 continues to increase, SLPs likely will see a growing demand for their services to treat age-related communication problems, including disorders related to the “aging voice.” This webinar will explore the typical age-related changes in each of the three major subsystems involved with voice production (respiratory, laryngeal, and resonatory) and explain how these changes affect vocal quality and ability. The presenters also will discuss appropriate assessment and intervention options, providing an overview of medical, surgical, and behavioral treatments.
