Summary: An information-rich videofluoroscopic assessment can help clinicians determine which components of the complex oropharyngeal swallow need to be targeted for intervention. Visualizing all of the elements that contribute to a well-integrated or disordered swallow mechanism requires an ordered and disciplined review. This video course demonstrates methods to enhance clinicians' ability to perform a videofluoroscopic assessment and discern the discrete elements of the oropharyngeal swallow. Participants can practice determining the integrity or disorder of the swallow mechanism by viewing and interpreting case study video.

Summary: This webinar will highlight the integration of adult learning and family-centered principles as the foundation for organizing a home visit that supports family decision-making, participation, and parent-provider partnership in early intervention. Family-guided routines-based intervention incorporates a flexible framework for home visiting that includes four components: setting the stage, observation and opportunities to embed, problem-solving and planning, and reflection and review. Within each component, SLPs can incorporate coaching strategies to support the caregiver in embedding communication intervention within the child’s everyday routines and activities.

Summary: Audiologists and SLPs who work with individuals whose primary language is not English may find themselves in a situation where they need to use an interpreter. Being prepared with a plan of action for accessing an interpreter as well as having policies and procedures for the collaboration can ensure the client/patient receives the best possible services. This webinar will describe how to develop a plan of action and offer guidelines for fostering a collaborative and culturally sensitive relationship between the clinician, client/patient, and interpreter.

Summary: Two deficits commonly caused by damage to the right hemisphere are unilateral neglect and anosognosia. Unilateral neglect is reduced attention to one region of space, and anosognosia is reduced awareness of deficits. These deficits commonly co-occur and have an impact on how well a patient participates in and responds to treatment. This webinar will discuss characteristics, assessment, and treatment of both disorders.

Summary: Assessing individuals from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds can be challenging. This webinar will give SLPs the tools and processes needed to confidently make diagnostic decisions for their students and clients from diverse backgrounds. The webinar will evaluate formal assessment tools and describe effective informal assessment approaches that can help SLPs confidently tease apart difference from disorder.

Summary: Adults with post-concussive syndrome often struggle with challenges in work, family, and quality of life. Our professional roles continue to evolve as concussion is better understood at both a physiological and functional level. The diffuse injury that is concussion results in highly variable presentations, and as SLPs we are tasked with being ready for anything. This webinar will briefly cover concussion assessment and then focus mostly on evidence-based intervention for adults. It will consider a breadth of clients, including those with sports injuries and blast injuries as well as those with falls and accidents.

Summary: Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) typically occurs alongside aphasia. Clinicians are often challenged with questions such as, “What should I work on first, and why/how?” and “How can I deliver intensive therapy in today’s healthcare system?” While there are a number of treatment approaches available for AOS, there are very few large-scale investigations of treatment efficacy to inform practice and limited studies that tackle the issues around intensity and concomitant disorders. This course summarizes the pros, cons, and similarities of impairment-based approaches to treatment for individuals with AOS plus aphasia. The outcomes from our latest Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences systematic review on treatment for AOS will be discussed along with more recent work. The course will provide demonstrations and detailed discussion of the rationale and procedures for those approaches with the strongest evidence to support clinical use, so that participants can immediately begin implementing these techniques in the clinic.

Summary: Differentiating apraxia of speech (AOS) from other acquired speech and language impairments is important clinically as it provides a framework for understanding the signs and symptoms of the disorder, which in turn influences which specific treatment method will be applied. However, diagnosis remains challenging since it hinges on expert-based judgment of speech features, with minimal guidance on the frequency, severity, or clustering of features required for positive diagnosis. This course provides a brief overview of the current diagnostic method and its limitations, followed by discussion and demonstration of effective objective and semi-automated speech measures for identifying acquired AOS in both stroke and progressive forms. Video case examples and demonstrations of these measures will be provided so that clinicians can immediately begin putting this knowledge into practice.

Summary: With all the developments and changes in aphasia therapy, clinicians can have difficulty keeping abreast of the latest and greatest tools and techniques to ensure they are selecting the best evidence-based treatment option to fit a particular client’s needs and language abilities. This video course uses the ASHA Practice Portal and other resources to explore case studies and apply aphasia interventions to achieve functional goals for adults of all ages. The course identifies candidacy requirements for numerous aphasia interventions, reviews the procedures for using them, and discusses how to fit them into required goal statements and outcome measures.

Summary: Early intervention supports a child and their family by promoting the child’s learning and development within the context of the family’s everyday routines. One crucial piece in successful early intervention is building the family’s capacity to engage in activities that foster communication development in the child. In this course, Dathan Rush provides the purpose, rationale, and protocol for coaching parents of young children in natural learning environments to foster speech and language development. Using video analysis and discussion, the course demonstrates how to implement the five evidence-based characteristics of the coaching interaction style with parents of children receiving early intervention services. You’ll walk away with tools for implementing coaching strategies with families on your caseload.
