Summary: When an SLP first meets an older adult with dementia and a cognitive-communication disorder, many questions arise. What is the nature of the person’s communication problems? What are the causes and contributors to the problems? How are the problems affecting the person’s ability to participate in everyday life activities? What is the most effective, evidence-based, and person-centered approach to answering these questions? This video course will discuss cognitive-communication disorders related to dementia and provide ideas to help SLPs select the most appropriate screening or assessment for individual clients.

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: This course includes four recorded sessions from the 2018 online conference “Improving Functional Outcomes in Aphasia.” Two of these sessions address strategies for working with special populations of people with aphasia and two other sessions explore modifications to technology and coding/documentation that may need to be made when working with individuals with aphasia. The conference included a total of 15 sessions, giving a comprehensive view of the current landscape of aphasia intervention as well as related subjects, including medical management, neuroplasticity, life participation, assessment, and more. Sessions explored practical treatment strategies to meet the needs of patients across the severity spectrum and in various treatment settings, as well as the unique needs of a range of patient subgroups.

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.

Summary: Pediatric traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are underreported, which means that many children and teens are not getting needed services to help with post-injury cognitive issues that, though often mild, can cause academic and other difficulties. This webinar will discuss recent advances in the characteristics, recovery trajectories, assessments, and interventions for children and adolescents with TBI. Discussion will include evidence-based approaches to assessment and treatment that SLPs can implement immediately in clinical practice. The speaker will also discuss the important role of the SLP as a multidisciplinary team member treating this patient population and advocating for patients/clients/families.

Summary: Clinicians who work with individuals with dementia are well aware of the need to address memory and other cognitive issues. However, there are other potential problems that may co-occur with dementia or happen as a result of the disease progression. This journal self-study explores some of these issues, including ways to improve the use of compensatory swallowing strategies, the impact of hearing amplification on cognitive performance, how motor speech may be affected by dementia and other progressive disorders, and how auditory processing may be affected by cognitive impairment. Clinicians can use this information to improve how they manage patients with dementia.

Summary: People with Parkinson’s disease (PD) often present with dysarthria and reduced intelligibility. Understanding the nature of these speech deficits and how they affect the individual will improve treatment and speech outcomes. This journal self-study explores how aspects of both the individual (such as native language and experiences with speaking) and treatment conditions (such as task or cue types) affect speech production and intelligibility for people with PD. SLPs can use this information to improve intervention for people with PD and individual perceptions of speech production.
