Summary: This video program provides comprehensive information about identifying, assessing, and treating bilingual children ages 3–11 who have highly unintelligible speech. The presenter discusses case studies and current research to provide concrete solutions to common challenges such as figuring out where to begin when providing services, identifying bilingual children at-risk for other concomitant deficiencies, differentiating language difference vs. disorder, and selecting the most effective treatments.

Credit(s): PDHs: 3.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.35
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.
Presenter(s): Barbara D. Weinrich, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 3.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.3
Summary: Childhood and adolescent voice disorders are observed in multiple clinical settings, with many professionals having limited background or education to properly treat them. Pediatric voice disorders can have adverse effects on children and teens in classroom and social situations. This video course provides a plethora of practical information based on research and practice in a major pediatric hospital setting. Vocal hygiene, vocal function exercises, semi-occluded vocal tract exercises, and other specific techniques are discussed.

Summary: A thorough cranial nerve examination is an essential part of the speech-language pathologist’s evaluation of every patient. When performed, it is useful in the diagnosis of speech and swallowing disorders, and accurate diagnosis is crucial for development of a targeted, individualized treatment plan. This video course provides an overview of the neuroanatomy and physiology of the cranial nerve examination. Participants will receive detailed instructions for testing and interpreting findings of the cranial nerve examination. The course also describes common abnormalities observed for patients with impairment of cranial nerve function.
Presenter(s): Sheryl Rosin, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 6.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.6
Summary: This course examines The PLAY Project®, an evidence-based home intervention and consultation program for young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The program uses developmentally appropriate, play-based methods and coaches parents and other caregivers to extend treatment beyond the therapy sessions. The presenter explores the program’s main assessment and intervention principles, highlighting specific techniques and activities. The course also presents multiple case studies as useful examples of children's progress in treatment, the practical challenges of implementing a program, overcoming funding obstacles, and the importance of multicultural awareness in ASD intervention, including the adoption of the model for Ohio’s Part C Early Intervention System and a project that implemented the program with a low-income, underserved population in the Caribbean island country Saint Kitts and Nevis.
Presenter(s): Judith Trost-Cardamone, PhD, CCC-SLP

Summary: This is the second in a two-part course is designed to bring you comprehensive information on cleft palate assessment and treatment. With this program, you will gain a comfort level in treating cleft palate/VPI and in working collaboratively with the cleft palate/craniofacial team. You’ll hone your knowledge and clinical practice skills in treating speech disorders, from glottal stops to learned nasal emission. We’ll provide treatment rationales, procedures, and techniques that are supplemented with video clips. You’ll also learn how to distinguish “learned” from “obligatory”/physically based problems.

Summary: This is the first in a two-part course is designed to bring you comprehensive information on cleft palate assessment and treatment. From glottal stops to learned nasal emission, this course will help you hone your knowledge and clinical practice skills in assessing speech disorders associated with cleft palate/VPI. The speaker will discuss procedures and techniques, and share audio and video clips to demonstrate how to assess the variety and uniqueness of speech deviations seen in cleft palate cases. You’ll also learn how to distinguish “learned” from “obligatory”/physically based problems.
