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.

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: Pediatric traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are underreported, which means that many children and teens are not getting needed services to help with post-injury cognitive issues that, though often mild, can cause academic and other difficulties. This webinar will discuss recent advances in the characteristics, recovery trajectories, assessments, and interventions for children and adolescents with TBI. Discussion will include evidence-based approaches to assessment and treatment that SLPs can implement immediately in clinical practice. The speaker will also discuss the important role of the SLP as a multidisciplinary team member treating this patient population and advocating for patients/clients/families.

Summary: Clinicians who work with individuals with dementia are well aware of the need to address memory and other cognitive issues. However, there are other potential problems that may co-occur with dementia or happen as a result of the disease progression. This journal self-study explores some of these issues, including ways to improve the use of compensatory swallowing strategies, the impact of hearing amplification on cognitive performance, how motor speech may be affected by dementia and other progressive disorders, and how auditory processing may be affected by cognitive impairment. Clinicians can use this information to improve how they manage patients with dementia.

Summary: This course presents a practical framework for cognitive rehabilitation for patients suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Clinicians can use the framework to identify functional treatments that are evidence-based, matched to individualized patient needs, and feasible given the time and resource constraints of the current health care environment. The course explores specific cognitive rehabilitation interventions that patients with a brain injury may find particularly valuable and motivating. The presenters use case studies to discuss how to write functional goals and identify optimum outcome measures.

Summary: Research suggests that a key difference between a leader and a manager is the capacity to think and act from a bigger picture and long-term perspective. A key determinant of career success for many CSD professionals is their ability to identify new opportunities to add value in both their organizational and volunteer roles. In this webinar, participants will be introduced to strategic thinking concepts and strategies for identifying and developing innovative new ideas.

Summary: Increasingly, the need to change is the only constant. Organizations that are able to navigate change will thrive. However, the ability of CSD professionals to successfully guide change in their organizations rests upon unique skills and knowledge beyond those needed in times of constancy. In this webinar, participants will gain awareness of their own style in encountering change along with tools and strategies to enable successful change efforts.

Summary: Organizations of all types face an accelerated pace of change that present both threats to their existence as well as amazing opportunities. Before strategic priorities and initiatives can be identified, its essential that leaders are able to use generative thinking mindsets and strategies to explore emerging trends to gain shared understanding of their meaning, underlying cause, and potential impacts. In this webinar, participants will be introduced to generative thinking concepts as well as strategies for applying this powerful tool to organizational governance.
