Summary: This course presents a study that examined the effect of auditory status on emotion recognition and the link between emotion recognition to social well-being in adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) or typical hearing (TH).

Summary: This quartet of SIG 13 articles provides information regarding managing and treating dysphagia in the adult population. Caileen Harvey, Rachel Flemming, Julia Davis, and Victoria Reynolds investigate International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative implementation issues by surveying health care professionals in health care facilities in rural Upstate New York. Ankita M. Bhutada, William A. Broughton, Brenda L. Beverly, Dahye Choi, Sandip Barui, and Kendrea L. (Focht) Garand aim to identify the prevalence of dysphagia and reflux reported symptoms in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and determine associations between symptoms and demographic and clinical variables. Stevie Marvin summarizes published research on screening, evaluating, and treating post-extubation dysphagia in the intensive care unit. Rebekah Guastella, Stefania Oppedisano, Luis F. Riquelme, and Ashwini M. Namasivayam-MacDonald study bolus location at swallow onset, stage transition, pharyngeal transition duration, pharyngeal response duration, and pharyngeal phase duration between cued and uncued swallowing conditions in patients with dementia.

Summary: This session discusses the latest advances and updates in cochlear implant technology, including electrode array design, approaches to preservation of residual hearing, the variety of processors and compatible approaches to successful bimodal use, wireless technology, and the array of accessory options available for optimal listening. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: These three articles describe current issues and advances related to hearing diagnostics, treatment, and prevention. The first article is a detailed description of the impact that COVID-19 face masks and social distancing regulations have had on speech recognition and how face masks affect the acoustic signal and increase cognitive effort in listeners with hearing loss. Suggestions for mitigating these deleterious impacts on communication are provided. The second article is a research study examining the correlation between self-perceived hearing difficulty, determined using a questionnaire (Adult Auditory Performance Scale), and speech-in-noise performance (Listening in Spatialized Noise–Sentences Test) in listeners with normal pure-tone thresholds. Results highlight the relationship between self-perceived hearing abilities and binaural speech-in-noise performance supporting the inclusion of speech-in-noise testing even in those with normal pure-tone thresholds. The third article is a review of current genetic, stem cell, and pharmacotherapy research for treatment and prevention of hearing loss. Animal models are discussed, as well as steps to translate this research into clinical practice.

Summary: This session discusses presbyphonia—the anatomical, physiological, and overall functional changes to the vocal mechanism as patients age. The speaker presents assessment strategies, with and without advanced instrumental assessment, as well as treatment options. The speaker also discusses case studies to highlight treatment decision-making and interprofessional care for voice issues that accompany aging. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Voice Evaluation and Treatment: Improving Outcomes for Children and Adults.”

Summary: Eligibility for speech-language services in schools must adhere to the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA). This session explains IDEA requirements, including eligibility criteria, use of standardized and nonstandardized assessments and classroom observations, and team decision-making. The presenter shares strategies and addresses eligibility concerns related to unique populations as well as presents tips to enhance deliberations by interprofessional teams when making eligibility decisions.This course is a recorded session from the 2022/2023 online conference "Assessment, Eligibility, and Dismissal in Schools: Strategies, Tools, and Decision-Making."

Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session presents a study of 19 children ages 5-7 with inaccurate /r/ who were followed every 3 months until they acquired /r/ or turned 8 years old, whichever came first. Acquisition was determined for three separate allophones of /r/: vocalic, prevocalic, and postvocalic.

Summary: Medical professionals who use hearing aids can face challenges when they need to perform auscultation (listening to sounds from various organs, most often with a stethoscope) as part of their job. While the options may not seem straightforward, audiologists can play a key role in helping these medical professionals find an amplified stethoscope solution. This on demand webinar (available beginning March 21, 2024) will discuss key considerations, potential options, and practical steps for helping medical professionals with hearing loss obtain the best solution.
Presenter(s): Devin L. McCaslin, PhD, CCC-A
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: This session will examine the diagnosis and treatment of persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD). The session will explore the recently defined criteria for the presentation and symptoms of the disorder as well as describe current and emerging research that is helping clinicians and researchers better understand it. The speaker will also discuss how chronic co-morbid disorders such as migraine and Meniere’s disease should be factored into the treatment of this disorder.
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.15
Summary: This session provides insights and resources from two companies that have employed SLPAs in a variety of ways. The speaker discusses the necessity and appropriate utilization of professionals at this level of service and explores ideas for integrating SLPAs in private practice. This is a recorded session from ASHA’s 2020 Private Practice Connect conference.
