Summary: This webinar examines legal cases from around the U.S. that address common challenges that school-based SLPs face when making recommendations and providing services. The course incorporates the ASHA Code of Ethics to highlight relevant ethical principles and also reviews conflict resolution steps to facilitate work relationships that benefit student services.

Summary: SLPs face busy schedules, varied client needs, and little time to plan. Visually cued instruction is an evidence-based practice that can include using photos and drawings to target a variety of client needs. Images make language more visible to our clients in order to scaffold language comprehension, expression, and other objectives. This webinar will highlight easy-to-use free and low-cost ($5 and less) technology tools, accessible via multiple platforms, that SLPs can use to incorporate images into their clinical practice.

Summary: SLPs who work in schools – particularly those who are less experienced with telepractice – may be concerned about the effects on their students’ outcomes and their own job security if telepractice became commonplace in their district. This course – a recorded session from ASHA’s 2019 Schools Connect conference – explores how services delivered via telepractice and on-site can work in tandem to improve student outcomes and clinician caseloads.

Summary: Do you wonder why you have children on your caseload who have had the same speech sound production errors for years? Do you wonder what you can do to help the 5th grader who continues to have trouble with the /r/ sound? Do you wonder what happens to these children after they are off your caseload? This webinar will discuss these and other questions that the presenter herself had as a practicing school-based SLP and that she now attempts to solve as a researcher. In this webinar, she will explore the factors that influence language, literacy, and cognitive skills for children with early, persistent, and remediated speech sound disorders. Discussion will include how SLPs can help these children more quickly as well as assessment considerations for ensuring the best outcomes from intervention.

Summary: Clinicians frequently find that children with speech sound disorders progress in intervention more slowly than desired, or they may make expected progress within sessions but not carry over or generalize improved speech skills to their daily activities. There is some evidence that using normalized speech sound intervention – treatment activities that reflect the real-world activities and interactions in which children communicate – can lead to more rapid increases in intelligibility. This course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to implement normalized speech sound intervention using age and developmentally appropriate curriculum-based learning activities in which the production of speech sound targets is integrated in meaningful verbal and social interactions.

Summary: As a result of recent laws and regulations, more SLPs in schools are treating children with dyslexia. The journal articles in this self-study – from an October 2018 Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools clinical forum on dyslexia – provide “state-of-the-science” information to help SLPs understand dyslexia in relation to other speech and language disorders, as well as ways to identify, assess, and treat this disorder. Clinicians will find practical tips that they can immediately incorporate into practice.

Summary: A strong vocabulary is essential to social, academic, and professional success. Many people on the SLP's caseload learn words slowly and, as a result, accrue a small, limited vocabulary. The good news is that word learning is a fairly tractable problem space. This webinar explores different approaches to word learning and how best to tailor word teaching to your clients.

Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) can be life-changing for many individuals, but due to its complex and commercial nature, it also comes with a myriad of potential ethical concerns. Clinicians can improve AAC assessment and intervention outcomes for those they serve by being confident they are making ethically informed decisions about AAC use. This webinar uses case studies to discuss common ethical dilemmas encountered in the use of AAC, leaning on the ASHA Code of Ethics for support. The presenter outlines a process for ethical decision-making and shares trends in school and health care settings that affect ethical decision-making as it relates to AAC use.

Summary: Effectively assessing preschool children with emotional and behavioral difficulties can be challenging for SLPs. Typical testing protocols do not always work well with this population, meaning many preschool children with behavioral and emotional needs are not appropriately identified in order to receive much-needed speech-language and other services. This session explores the connections among social, emotional, behavior, and communication difficulties as well as discuss formal and informal assessment that are appropriate for this population. This course is a recorded session from the 2019/2020 online conference “Innovative Methods for Preschool Assessment, Collaboration, and Treatment.”

Summary: Young children with communication impairments, especially language disorders, face elevated risks in developing reading problems. SLPs play an important role in helping young children with language disorders develop foundational literacy skills that can enhance their literacy and reading trajectories. This video course provides evidence-based guidance on how to modify treatment to improve the foundational literacy skills of young children with language disorders.
