Summary: This video course will focus on using evidence-based exercise practices in swallowing rehabilitation. The speaker will discuss the theoretical background and evidence for exercise science and then present exercise-based techniques that SLPs can implement with patients. Specific topics will include motor learning, skill vs. strength training, and muscle structure and function. Specific exercises will be discussed, including isometric lingual strength training, expiratory muscle strength training, chin tuck against resistance, Lee Silverman Voice Treatment, and more.

Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This video course will help SLPs choose the best evidence-based interventions to target cognitive and communication disorders for individual clients at different stages of dementia. The speaker will discuss methods of measuring outcomes as well as case study examples.

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: This video course presents systematic, evidence-based strategies for carrying out a comprehensive evaluation of infants and children who demonstrate signs of dysphagia and/or broader feeding problems. The course includes detailed discussion and strategies for collecting a child’s relevant history and conducting a physical examination and feeding observation. With a focus on function, the course offers guidance on interpreting evaluation findings and making optimal recommendations for next steps that promote functional outcomes. Video clips of professionals and caregivers working with infants and children, as well as discussion of case studies, enhance the learning experience.

Credit(s): PDHs: 4.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.4
Summary: This course presents a practical framework for cognitive rehabilitation for patients suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Clinicians can use the framework to identify functional treatments that are evidence-based, matched to individualized patient needs, and feasible given the time and resource constraints of the current health care environment. The course explores specific cognitive rehabilitation interventions that patients with a brain injury may find particularly valuable and motivating. The presenters use case studies to discuss how to write functional goals and identify optimum outcome measures.

Summary: A thorough cranial nerve examination is an essential part of the speech-language pathologist’s evaluation of every patient. When performed, it is useful in the diagnosis of speech and swallowing disorders, and accurate diagnosis is crucial for development of a targeted, individualized treatment plan. This video course provides an overview of the neuroanatomy and physiology of the cranial nerve examination. Participants will receive detailed instructions for testing and interpreting findings of the cranial nerve examination. The course also describes common abnormalities observed for patients with impairment of cranial nerve function.

Summary: An information-rich videofluoroscopic assessment can help clinicians determine which components of the complex oropharyngeal swallow need to be targeted for intervention. Visualizing all of the elements that contribute to a well-integrated or disordered swallow mechanism requires an ordered and disciplined review. This video course demonstrates methods to enhance clinicians' ability to perform a videofluoroscopic assessment and discern the discrete elements of the oropharyngeal swallow. Participants can practice determining the integrity or disorder of the swallow mechanism by viewing and interpreting case study video.

Summary: With all the developments and changes in aphasia therapy, clinicians can have difficulty keeping abreast of the latest and greatest tools and techniques to ensure they are selecting the best evidence-based treatment option to fit a particular client’s needs and language abilities. This video course uses the ASHA Practice Portal and other resources to explore case studies and apply aphasia interventions to achieve functional goals for adults of all ages. The course identifies candidacy requirements for numerous aphasia interventions, reviews the procedures for using them, and discusses how to fit them into required goal statements and outcome measures.

Summary: Endotracheal tubes, tracheostomy tubes, and ventilator dependency can have adverse effects on communication and swallowing. SLPs who take the lead role in remediating these impairments need to have the knowledge and skills to provide appropriate, safe, and evidence-based interventions. This streaming video course is designed for the SLP who has an interest in post-extubation dysphagia and in communication and swallowing challenges associated with tracheostomy tubes and ventilator dependency. The course reviews the literature and presents a “how-to” guide for managing these medically complex patients. Medical SLPs will walk away with strategies to best manage their patients who are experiencing complications due to artificial airways.

Summary: Even when bilingual SLPs and audiologists are familiar with an individual’s native language, a skilled interpreter may be helpful to assist during the evaluation process. This course offers SLPs and audiologists helpful, evidence-based strategies for working with interpreters to ensure that your time with clients who require interpreters is used effectively.
