Summary: In general, adults and children who obtain cochlear implants achieve favorable speech recognition outcomes. However, the presence of background noise—even minimal amounts—can negatively impact speech understanding. This session provides an overview of the hearing assistance technologies available for individuals with cochlear implants as well as evidence of the efficacy and effectiveness of the various types. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: This session discusses the latest advances and updates in cochlear implant technology, including electrode array design, approaches to preservation of residual hearing, the variety of processors and compatible approaches to successful bimodal use, wireless technology, and the array of accessory options available for optimal listening. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: This session illustrates how telehealth/telepractice can enable professionals to make their services more easily accessible to clients with cochlear implants who are in poor health or live in remote areas where travel is a challenge. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: This session highlights case examples that describe the referral and management process for adults who may benefit from or who are currently using cochlear implants. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: No national or international consensus exists on the delivery of care specific to pre-operative and post-operative audiologic cochlear implant evaluation and management. As such, decision-making regarding testing methods is largely made by the professional judgement of the clinician, which can bring with it discrepancies in testing that lead to inconsistent access to cochlear implants. This session discusses these discrepancies and provides a set of guidelines clinicians can use to refer patients for a cochlear implant evaluation. The session addresses the importance of a multidisciplinary approach when evaluating candidates for cochlear implants. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Credit(s): PDHs: 1.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.15
Summary: There is not much consensus or standardization in the practices professionals use to measure outcomes for cochlear implant (CI) recipients. This session examines outcome measurement, providing clear and concise recommendations for assessment of outcomes in adult and pediatric CI recipients. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”
Presenter(s): Sarah A. Sydlowski, AuD, PhD
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session discusses the current parameters for identifying cochlear implant candidates and provides an update on cochlear implantation that aims to clarify misconceptions that may influence referral patterns. The speaker points out resources that clinicians can use to offer comprehensive, authoritative information on cochlear implantation candidacy to their patients. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: This journal self-study updates clinicians on advances in the field that can refine current diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). Two articles address assessment: One examines how type of stimuli can affect differential diagnosis of CAS, and the other identifies possible red flags in young children by examining characteristics of speech production in infants and toddlers who were later diagnosed with CAS. Two additional articles address advances in intervention for CAS: One looks at the efficacy of adding prosody as a treatment component, and the other explores a model-based treatment protocol.

Summary: This journal self-study emphasizes clinical decision-making in swallowing and dysphagia management. The articles focus on using data to make clinical decisions, finding noninvasive ways to screen healthy adults, and patient-reported side effects and tolerability of a specific assessment technique.
Presenter(s): Lori Burkhead Morgan, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
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.
