Summary: SLPs who work with individuals with development disabilities across the life span are often confronted with myths that may limit the communication of their clients, students, and patients. This on demand webinar (available beginning August 31, 2023) will examine some of these myths and how they affect the delivery of communication services and supports. The speakers will share evidence and case examples that debunk these myths and explain strategies you may use to change perceptions.

Summary: Down syndrome is a genetic syndrome characterized by unique anatomical and physiological traits; medical complications affecting movement, respiration, feeding, and metabolism; intellectual disabilities; as well as dysarthria and other communication challenges. This on demand webinar shares evidence-based techniques that target motor speech, voice, fluency, and functional language to maximize intelligibility and comprehensibility of speech and language for individuals with Down syndrome.
Presenter(s): Michael G McLeod, MA, CCC-SLP, TSSLD
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session explores assessment and treatment of executive function deficits in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) utilizing a language-based approach. The speaker presents research-based strategies that help SLPs view executive functioning deficits-and how to effectively treat them-from a new perspective.

Summary: This on demand webinar is designed for school-based SLPs who support children with complex oral feeding and swallowing needs. The speaker discusses the components of a robust feeding and dysphagia assessment, and how that assessment informs treatment decisions surrounding a student's feeding needs. The course examines effective and realistic goal development to address feeding needs within the IEP.
Credit(s): PDHs: 5.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.55
Summary: The articles in this journal self-study discuss the literacy difficulties many children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience, with direct clinical implications for literacy assessment and intervention. The articles, which apply to children across the age spectrum, are from a 2021 forum published in Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, titled “Literacy in Autism—Across the Spectrum.”

Summary: This on demand webinar explores provision of SLP services for preschool and school-age children with mild to moderate impairment in their development as a result of early medical diagnoses and experiences such as premature birth, congenital anomalies, and chronic medical conditions. The speakers discuss the impact of early diagnoses or disorders on children’s future development; the developmental outcomes for these children; and strategies and tools to support these children and their families.

Summary: Infants, children, and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) vary greatly in their needs, as the core challenges differ depending upon developmental level, family and child preferences, and more. This webinar illustrates how to use the evidence-based SCERTS framework in assessment as well as intervention planning and delivery to support social communication and relationship development. The webinar focuses on children at three different developmental levels – before using words, emerging language, and conversational.
Presenter(s): Libby Kumin, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This webinar will discuss the anatomical, physiological, neurological, and cognitive factors that affect the speech intelligibility of children and adolescents with Down syndrome. Although there are similarities among people who have this genetic disorder, evaluation and treatment are highly individualized based on specific factors that influence a particular individual’s speech. The speaker will discuss evaluation and treatment planning, including forms that clinicians can use right away in their own practice.
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.
