Summary: These Perspectives (SIG 19) articles focus on perceptual considerations and the use of a system to investigate lingual coordination as a clinical tool. In the first article Rakerd et al. review the resonant effects of performers, resonance associated with nasality, and resonant voice for both normal and disordered populations. In the second article Grover et al. use the bubble noise method, which places noise randomly in time and frequency with “holes” or “bubbles” that give glimpses into the target signal, to determine what is perceptually important in the speech signal for native/first language listeners versus nonnative/second language listeners. In the final article, Dugan et al. review TonguePART, an image processing system used to track the tongue surface, as a reliable, fast method to track articulatory movement of the tongue for syllables

Summary: These Perspectives (SIG 15) articles discuss issues related to dementia care, student supervision, and the home health patient driven groupings model. Warren describes the rational for the development of a new payment system, how it will be changing, and what speech-language pathologists can do to be prepared and successfully navigate the transition. Davies explores the relating concepts of participation and communication in dementia care research and to propose future avenues of research within the field of communication disorders. Bice and Smith discuss current issues found in external clinical placements, their possible causes, and offers practical solutions for assisting students to benefit from their experiences.

Summary: SLPs frequently evaluate and provide rehabilitation services to patients with sudden changes in cognitive status. This session will provide a foundation for understanding delirium—one of the most common reasons for acute cognitive change among older adults. As a symptom of other underlying medical issues, delirium frequently goes unrecognized or is misattributed as a mental health or primary neurologic issue, which leads to inaccurate treatment and recovery approaches. This session will help SLPs recognize delirium and improve early detection and treatment for patients in hospitals and nursing home settings.

Summary: This on demand webinar focuses on effective assessment and treatment of communication challenges in adults with diagnosed mental health conditions, a growing and often underserved population. Speakers Shannon Liem and Jessica Pranke explore how disease progression and medication can affect an individual’s behaviors, social interactions, and communication. The speakers also discuss the roles, responsibilities, and contributions of SLPs working with patients with communication challenges and mental health diagnoses.

Summary: This session shares low-cost and accessible methods for voice measurement that clinicians in any work setting can use as part of a voice assessment for adults and children. These assessment methods address the impact of vocal issues on activities of daily living, allow individuals to report voice changes over time, and aid clinicians in developing treatment goals and measuring outcomes. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Voice Evaluation and Treatment: Improving Outcomes for Children and Adults.”

Summary: This session examines best practices for working with performing artists, a special population that on the one hand has unique stressors and needs but on the other hand shares many issues and concerns with the broader community of patients with voice disorders. The speaker discusses how clinicians can ensure that the therapeutic process is effective and relevant for vocal performing artists. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Voice Evaluation and Treatment: Improving Outcomes for Children and Adults.”

Summary: This session discusses presbyphonia—the anatomical, physiological, and overall functional changes to the vocal mechanism as patients age. The speaker presents assessment strategies, with and without advanced instrumental assessment, as well as treatment options. The speaker also discusses case studies to highlight treatment decision-making and interprofessional care for voice issues that accompany aging. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Voice Evaluation and Treatment: Improving Outcomes for Children and Adults.”
