Summary: This session addresses the challenges and opportunities for speech-language pathologists who evaluate cognitive-communication, speech, and language disorders in children and adolescents with TBI. The session includes case studies. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Individuals With Traumatic Brain Injuries.”

Summary: This session discusses various testing options for assessing adults and adolescents with TBI, including self-report measures, standardized assessments, and functional evaluation procedures. The speaker uses clinical case examples across these testing domains to illustrate the usefulness of the tools and how they can help alleviate assessment challenges clinicians often face. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Individuals With Traumatic Brain Injuries.”

Summary: SLP roles, practices, and opportunities when working with children and adults with TBI have transformed over the past two decades. Much of the change has been driven by external forces, including insurance, science, regulations, and more. This session empowers SLPs to drive TBI practice advances in 2020 and beyond, focusing on three key areas: (1) re-imagining intervention for patients with cognitive impairments in acute care and inpatient rehabilitation, (2) defining what we do and how it helps across the recovery continuum, and (3) characterizing “functional” in terms of what it means for people with communication disorders after TBI. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Individuals With Traumatic Brain Injuries.”

Summary: In this audio recording, psychologist Via Strong and SLP Rebecca Politis explore the challenges and accomplishments they had working together to treat conversion disorder in a rehab setting. They discuss how to use a collaborative approach to diagnosis, tips on communicating with school professionals to facilitate a student’s return to school, and what it takes to provide empathetic care to patients with this often-misunderstood disorder. This course is a follow-up to the 2019 webinar The SLP’s Role in Conversion Disorder.

Summary: This journal self-study updates clinicians on advances in the field that can refine current diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). Two articles address assessment: One examines how type of stimuli can affect differential diagnosis of CAS, and the other identifies possible red flags in young children by examining characteristics of speech production in infants and toddlers who were later diagnosed with CAS. Two additional articles address advances in intervention for CAS: One looks at the efficacy of adding prosody as a treatment component, and the other explores a model-based treatment protocol.

Summary: Children with cleft palate often require speech intervention post-surgical repair to normalize their phonological learning of the high intraoral pressure consonants. In many cases, SLPs may find it challenging to differentiate between speech characteristics that are a result of persisting velopharyngeal insufficiency and those that are learned, habituated speech behaviors. This webinar addresses both structural and speech challenges that can co-exist in children with repaired cleft palate so that SLPs in all clinical settings can help these children achieve their best outcomes for speech production.

Summary: Conversion disorder, also commonly known as functional neurological symptom disorder, is a complex and often misunderstood condition that can affect an individual’s communication, cognition, and movement. This webinar will explore all aspects of the psychological disorder, including etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, counseling, and related issues to inform the SLP’s assessment and treatment of the disorder. The speaker will also discuss the SLP’s role specifically in working with children and teens with the disorder as they complete treatment and return to school.
Presenter(s): Lillian Stiegler, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This webinar will discuss all aspects of echolalia, a complex and often misunderstood language phenomenon. The speaker will discuss the origins of echolalia and review the evidence that supports it as a positive indicator of language development. The speaker will describe how to perform ongoing assessment before and during mitigation, and share intervention strategies to facilitate the transition to self-generated language.

Summary: The association between hearing loss and dementia has received significant press coverage. This webinar explores this association and discusses clinical implications. The speaker reviews the literature surrounding hearing loss and dementia to better describe the association, explains potential mechanistic pathways, and describes practical impacts on clinical practice.

Summary: Evaluating and treating children with selective mutism (SM) presents challenges. These children have the ability to speak but may not do so in social situations where they feel uncomfortable and are expected to speak. A substantial number of children with SM have speech-language deficits and vocal tension, affecting their ability to vocalize and verbalize. To determine a child’s actual communication abilities and plan appropriate treatment, it is important to conduct a comprehensive evaluation with expressive output. This webinar describes a validated evaluation procedure and treatment methods to improve vocal output, enhance meaningful verbalizations, and expand language in individuals with SM.
