Summary: Audiologists and SLPs encounter individuals of all ages with varying degrees of hearing loss, many of whom utilize or could benefit from cochlear implants (CI). CI technology has evolved drastically over the past 40 years. This recorded session from the ASHA Audiology 2022 Online Conference discusses the history of and current trends in cochlear implantation, including introduction to the 60/60 Guideline and 20/20 Hearing Initiative.

Summary: In clinical and educational settings, audiologists and SLPs are encountering individuals of all ages with single-sided deafness (SSD) or asymmetric hearing loss (AHL). This recorded session from the ASHA Audiology 2022 Online Conference discusses the prevalence of these cases and explores new trends in cochlear implant (CI) candidacy, available interventions, and outcomes for these populations.

Summary: There is evidence that many factors contribute to the varied performance outcomes among pediatric cochlear implant (CI) recipients, including etiology and quality of the electrode neuron interfaces (ENI). This course examines a study that investigated the intersection of these factors by analyzing the records and device settings for 156 children with confirmed diagnoses of either enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) or Connexin-26 mutations.

Summary: This course presents a systematic review that aimed to answer the PICO-format clinical research question: For adults with cochlear implants and severe to profound postlingual sensorineural hearing loss, is auditory training effective in improving listening outcomes?
Credit(s): PDHs: 4.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.4
Summary: These SIG 12 Perspectives articles provide information on current issues associated with display design and image complexity for individuals with cortical visual impairment and an in-depth overview of telepractice for people who rely on augmentative and alternative communication. Readers will be more adept at assessing and assisting children with cortical visual impairment and will have a better understanding of telepractice methods that can be used to improve virtual service delivery.

Summary: In this session, the speaker reviews the characteristics of culturally and linguistically responsive AAC practices and presents evidence-based strategies for culturally appropriate bilingual AAC assessment and intervention. The speaker discusses partnering with families to determine values, needs, priorities, and resources when implementing AAC. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication.”

Summary: Given the landscape of hundreds of apps, speech-generating devices, low-tech options, and no-tech strategies, SLPs who do not typically complete AAC assessments may wonder who to refer for an AAC an assessment and how they can contribute to the assessment process. This session reviews the AAC assessment process, with an emphasis on feature matching and consideration of the individual’s current and future needs. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication.”

Summary: Effective collaboration among individuals who use AAC and their families, communication partners at school/work, and those in the community can promote positive outcomes for the AAC communicators. This session defines what successful information exchanges can look like and explores who in the community an SLP may want to include as collaborators. The presenter shares strategies for effective and efficient collaboration across the AAC communicator’s family, school/work life, and broader community. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication.”

Summary: Having knowledgeable and supported caregivers—including parents, siblings, care attendants, home aides, home nurses, and extended family—is vital to an AAC user’s success. New opportunities for virtual sessions allow a level of home involvement and support previously made difficult by time and logistical constraints. This session discusses practical strategies for teaching and supporting home caregivers. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication.”
Presenter(s): Cynthia J. Cress, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.15
Summary: Learning to gesture or use aided AAC for intentional communication with a partner is challenging for some infants and toddlers with complex communication needs. This session explores a variety of intervention strategies that improve pre-intentional and intentional communication skills using various AAC modalities and some of which incorporate families and caregivers. The speaker shares live illustrations and video examples of young children who have various difficulties with pre-intentional communication and problem solves about how intervention can structure the learner’s experiences to fill in gaps. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication.”
