Summary: This on demand webinar focuses on case examples that demonstrate a language-based approach to managing echolalia, from delayed echolalia to self-generated language. Using video clips and language sample excerpts, the speakers describe the stages of gestalt language development, illustrate the varieties of echolalia, and review case examples of the successful use of the Natural Language Acquisition (NLA) protocol to support gestalt language development in three individuals. The speakers also propose transparent terminology that can be used to help explain NLA to colleagues and families.

Summary: This course explores the most commonly fit devices for patients whose hearing is significantly poorer in one ear than the other (e.g., single-sided deafness or asymmetric hearing loss) and identify factors that impact device selection and hearing management. Using data analysis and case examples from their clinic, the speakers discuss management options for asymmetrical sensorineural hearing loss, including traditional hearing aids, Bi-CROS devices, bone conduction devices (BCD), and cochlear implants (all with or without assistive devices).This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 6: Hearing and Hearing Disorders: Research and Diagnostics.

Summary: This course features moderated discussions among a panel of clinicians who collectively provide cochlear implant auditory rehabilitation (AR) to patients of all ages. Topics and discussions demonstrate the need to expand and differentiate intervention approaches based on the unique needs of individual patients with cochlear implants. Panelists review recent studies, present translational applications, share case studies and examples, illustrate multidisciplinary professional roles, and discuss evidence-based assessment and treatment. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 7: Aural Rehabilitation and Its Instrumentation.

Summary: This on demand webinar (available beginning November 21, 2020) will explore how the history of African American Language (AAL) relates to culturally sensitive and responsive practices in communication disorders. The webinar will feature first-time screenings of several excerpts from “The History of African American Language,” one episode of a documentary series sequel to the Emmy Award-winning “Talking Black in America.” During the webinar, sociolinguist Walt Wolfram and African American Language scholar and SLP Orlando Taylor will discuss the impacts of the history of African American Language on clinical practices for professionals working with individuals who speak AAL. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 14: Cultural and Linguistic Diversity and SIG 17: Global Issues in Communication Sciences and Related Disorders.

Summary: Developmental trauma has deleterious effects on social skills, cognitive abilities, and learning due to changes in the brain in response to these experiences. This on demand webinar will discuss relevant research and speech-language treatment approaches for children and adolescents who have experienced developmental trauma. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 1: Language Learning and Education.

Summary: This webinar explores the nature and typical development of speech sound production in children under age 3 with and without language delays or disorders. The speakers discuss best practices for assessment of speech abilities in young children as well as family-centered strategies to facilitate speech sound development within everyday activities and routines in early intervention.
Presenter(s): Lillian Stiegler, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
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: Early intervention programs and technological advances have made it possible for children born with hearing loss to attain levels of spoken language proficiency not previously possible. But these children need appropriate intervention to acquire spoken language at their optimal level. This webinar explores six principles of intervention that can effectively facilitate the acquisition of spoken language. Speaker Susan Nittrouer discusses relevant research and case studies to support the six principles and their role in maximizing outcomes.

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.
