Summary: When individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) experience changes in speech, they often look to SLPs for guidance and hope. SLPs have many tools at their disposal that can make a dramatic difference in patients’ quality of life. This on demand webinar will describe practical, patient-focused methods for AAC assessment and implementation for individuals with ALS that are based on an individual’s current strengths and needs.
Presenter(s): Brent E. Archer, PhD, CCC-SLP, LSVT Certified; Jamie Azios, PhD, CCC-SLP; Suma Devanga, PhD, CCC-SLP; Julie A. Hengst, PhD, CCC-SLP; Marion C. Leaman, PhD, CCC-SLP; Paul Prior, PhD; et al.

Summary: This course explores Innovating & Situating Practice in Rich Environments (InSPiRE), a novel approach to aphasia intervention. InSPiRE works with clinicians to recognize discourse patterns typical of restricted and rich environments and to apply discourse practices strategically, both to enrich clinical activities and to promote improved communication between individuals with aphasia and their everyday communication partners. The speakers discuss interactional research and practical strategies for topic management, contingent responses, shaping conversational narratives, creative use of collaborative referencing techniques, and other methods for creating rich communicative environments. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 2: Neurogenic Communication Disorders.

Summary: This course addresses assessment standards for confident diagnosis of exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) for clinicians across settings. Speakers discuss differential diagnoses and complex, co-occurring conditions as well as provide an update on terminology used to describe variants of what used to be commonly known as paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM). The speakers use case examples and research summaries to discuss current, evidence-based, behavioral methods for remediation and resolution of these conditions. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 3: Voice and Upper Airway Disorders.

Summary: This course explores the use of oral motor exercise in the treatment of children with resonance and/or compensatory speech errors. Speakers discuss theoretical, developmental, and other data sets, with a focus on how to apply critical thinking to treatment planning. Speakers present treatment examples as well as research and its clinical implications. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 5: Craniofacial and Velopharyngeal Disorders.

Summary: This on demand webinar will demonstrate how to incorporate cultural and linguistic diversity in an authentic way when teaching basic speech science courses. Speakers will provide examples of teaching activities for speech science, anatomy, and phonetics courses to expand students’ perspectives on foundational science concepts and help them develop an appreciation for the diversity present in speech production. The webinar will address dialects in American English (phonetics), anatomical correlates versus learned behaviors associated with gender differences (anatomy and physiology), and acoustic measures associated with sexual orientation. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 19: Speech Science.

Summary: This webinar will review the current state of hearing loss and hearing health care among individuals living with dementia, with an emphasis on addressing existing care disparities. The speaker will discuss the association between hearing loss and cognition, its impact on individuals living with dementia, and opportunities to expand access to hearing care through community-delivered approaches. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 7: Aural Rehabilitation and Its Instrumentation, SIG 8: Audiology and Public Health, and SIG 15: Gerontology.

Summary: This on demand webinar will explore service delivery modifications as well as evaluation and treatment principles for velopharyngeal dysfunction in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic. Speakers will address service delivery considerations during the pandemic for individuals with cleft palate and associated craniofacial or velopharyngeal conditions who may experience resonance, speech sound production, voice, feeding and swallowing, dental and orthodontic, hearing, and psychosocial difficulties. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 5: Craniofacial and Velopharyngeal Disorders.

Summary: This on demand webinar will explore the use of videostroboscopy and videoendoscopy to inform assessment and management of voice disorders (e.g., identification of physical factors, vocal technique factors, hygiene issues, stimulability testing, etc.). The speakers will describe stroboscopic technique, including scientific underpinnings and limitations, as well as discuss rating forms/scales, assessment protocols, and practice ratings to support clinicians’ decision-making regarding videostroboscopy. The webinar will also include a practice activity. This webinar – part of the SIGnatureSeries – was developed by SIG 3: Voice and Upper Airway Disorders.

Summary: This on demand webinar will highlight the vital role SLPs play in improving outcomes for African Americans with aphasia who are recovering from stroke. The webinar will explore how using the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (WHO ICF) framework and the concept of health-related quality of life (HRQL) to determine intervention targets can improve outcomes. The speaker will also discuss how SLPs can address health disparities, including in health literacy, that affect African American stroke survivors with and without aphasia. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 2: Neurogenic Communication Disorders.

Summary: First, Julie Case and Maria Grigos provide a review of speech motor control literature in childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and give clinical implications to the assessment and treatment of CAS. Second, Kristen Allison reviews approaches to measuring speech intelligibility in children with motor speech disorders. Third, Tricia McCabe, Donna Thomas, and Elizabeth Murray describe Rapid Syllable Transition Treatment (ReST) as a treatment for CAS. Fourth, Nancy Tarshis, Michelle Winner, and Pamela Crooke explore how communication challenges in CAS impact social competency and how speech motor challenges impact social development. Finally, Nina Benway and Jonathan Preston evaluate if features of CAS in the literature could be replicated in a sample of school-age children. Readers will describe how speech motor skills have been found to change with practice in CAS, list the linguistic factors that can influence intelligibility, describe the quality of the research that supports ReST, explain ways to consider social cognition in therapy for CAS, and rank the speech features that distinguish the narrow phonetic transcriptions of children with CAS and speech sound disorders.
