Summary: This journal self-study includes select papers that were presented at the 2017 Clinical Aphasiology Conference in Snowbird, Utah. The articles reflect the wide array of topics presented on aphasia treatment, tools, and outcomes. Also included is an article that ties ideas from the conference keynote to research in communication disorders. Clinicians can expand their knowledge by learning about the current state of aphasia research.

Summary: This webinar will discuss all aspects of echolalia, a complex and often misunderstood language phenomenon. The speaker will discuss the origins of echolalia and review the evidence that supports it as a positive indicator of language development. The speaker will describe how to perform ongoing assessment before and during mitigation, and share intervention strategies to facilitate the transition to self-generated language.

Summary: Simulated presence treatment, in which an individual living with dementia watches a video or listens to audio of a familiar person (a family member or doctor), may reduce agitation and confusion and allow the individual to redirect to meaningful activities. This course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – will guide SLPs through using this tool to help their clients with dementia. The presenter will share examples of the tool and then walk you through creating simulated presence videos using simple technology for your own clients with dementia, including giving you time to practice and reflect.

Summary: This course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – will guide SLPs through the process of creating personalized visual supports to promote meaningful participation in daily conversations and life activities for individuals living with dementia. The presenter will provide examples of different types of communication, memory, and sequencing aids that can be produced quickly using simple technology. Then she will walk you through a step-by-step template for creating these types of supports for your own clients with dementia, including giving you time to practice and reflect.

Summary: Due to their cognitive-communication deficits, people living with dementia often have difficulty participating in daily activities that they previously enjoyed. This course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – will guide SLPs in creating activities to promote recall and increase engagement in daily activities and hobbies, namely memory stations and activities based on the Montessori approach. The presenter will provide examples of these activities and then walk you through a step-by-step template for creating them for your own clients, including giving you time to practice and reflect.

Summary: Person-centered, client-directed evaluations for individuals with dementia lead to personalized, functional intervention goals that permit the individuals to participate in meaningful activities. This course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – will guide SLPs through conducting a person-centered assessment. The presenter will discuss two sample frameworks and case studies for this type of assessment and then take you through a step-by-step template for conducting a person-centered assessment, including giving you time to practice and reflect.

Summary: Children’s verbal skills differ for many different reasons. Some may have a specific deficit in learning language rules and structures; for others, the differences in expression may result from underlying limitations in memory skills, or in the cognitive control and flexibility needed to plan and monitor communication. This webinar examines how limitations in working memory and other executive functions affect language and learning generally. The speaker discusses assessment and intervention strategies related to executive functions.

Summary: Evaluating and treating children with selective mutism (SM) presents challenges. These children have the ability to speak but may not do so in social situations where they feel uncomfortable and are expected to speak. A substantial number of children with SM have speech-language deficits and vocal tension, affecting their ability to vocalize and verbalize. To determine a child’s actual communication abilities and plan appropriate treatment, it is important to conduct a comprehensive evaluation with expressive output. This webinar describes a validated evaluation procedure and treatment methods to improve vocal output, enhance meaningful verbalizations, and expand language in individuals with SM.

Summary: Accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) can be challenging for seasoned and newer clinicians alike. How do we efficiently and effectively assemble and grow our CAS “toolkit”? This webinar will discuss practical tips – rooted in the principles of evidence-based practice – to strengthen SLPs’ diagnosis and treatment of CAS to enhance child outcomes.
