Presenter(s): Gintas Krisciunas, MPH, MA; Susan L Langmore, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S; Renee Speyer, PhD
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session reviews what it means for a measure to be objective, subjective, and/or valid and applies these concepts to fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES). The presenters also discuss other, equally important, criteria to consider when evaluating a patient for dysphagia: accuracy, meaningfulness, and relevancy.

Summary: This session introduces technological, procedural, and analysis factors that optimize objectivity and reproducibility of clinically valid videofluoroscopic measurements made from modified barium swallow (MBS) studies. The speaker addresses the importance and preferred practices for learning, training, and measurement skill calibration and demonstrates positive and negative influences of clinical bias on VFSS measurement and interpretation.
Presenter(s): Catriona M Steele, PhD, CCC-SLP

Summary: SLPs who work with people with dysphagia face the challenge of identifying food textures and liquid consistencies that will optimize swallowing safety and efficiency while minimizing negative consequences on quality of life and nutrition. This session features case-based opportunities to practice the skills involved in determining when and how texture modification can be used to improve swallowing outcomes.

Summary: The application of multiple swallow maneuvers is often a mainstay of dysphagia intervention, but the role of the maneuver and its effect on swallow rehabilitation outcomes are not always clear. This session explores swallowing intervention beyond the application of maneuvers and reviews the role of motor learning strategies in maximizing outcomes for patients.

Summary: Impairments in laryngeal vestibule closure (LVC) are a major cause of aspiration during swallowing. Accurately identifying LVC impairment is a priority in dysphagia management as aspiration can occur if LVC is absent or delayed, or duration is reduced. However, this mechanism is often overlooked and underreported in the evaluation of swallowing and in swallowing research. This session discusses methods for incorporating LVC as a primary outcome measure in dysphagia diagnosis and management to increase diagnostic accuracy and optimize dysphagia management.

Summary: Modifying diet consistencies is one of the more common approaches to dysphagia care. However, much controversy remains regarding how SLPs tackle decision-making and about the actual modification and measurement of liquids and foods in terms of nutrition and safety as primary goals of dysphagia treatment. This session addresses the complexities in both processes, with a focus on achieving the best outcomes for each patient.
Presenter(s): Ed M Bice, MEd, CCC-SLP; Alicia Kim Vose, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: Clinicians who practice dysphagia management can easily generate a mental image of a "normal" swallow. Frequently, words such as "unsafe," "inefficient," or "at-risk" accompany images of swallows that deviate from normal. This session carefully examines the complexities and pitfalls of using these types of terms with patients, families, and/or medical providers. In particular, the speakers discuss how the SLP's notion of what constitutes safety and efficiency can influence diet recommendations and treatment plans. This session tackles the complexities of the meaning behind the words and phrases that influence and underlie clinical decisions and how SLPs communicate them to patients and other stakeholders.

Summary: When SLPs are tasked with evaluating and treating patients who use high flow nasal cannula oxygenation systems, they may have questions about these systems' potential impact on swallowing. This session discusses the literature on swallowing and use of high flow nasal cannulas and the implications for dysphagia evaluation and treatment.
Presenter(s): Debra M Suiter, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Often, SLPs working with individuals with dysphagia struggle with knowing when it is appropriate to discharge their patient. The decision to discharge is multifactorial, including both patient- and clinician-driven factors. This session explores practical strategies and evidence-based practices for determining when it is appropriate to discharge a patient from dysphagia treatment.

Summary: This recorded dialogue features three AAC experts, who discuss person- and family-centered approaches to AAC, focusing on effective, culturally and linguistically responsive assessment practices. The exchange was recorded at the 2021 online conference "Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication" and is a companion to two recorded sessions from the conference: Effective Practices in AAC Assessment (Jill E. Senner, PhD, CCC-SLP, and Matthew R. Baud, MS, CCC-SLP) and A Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Approach to AAC (Gloria Soto, PhD). The dialogue was moderated by Carole Zangari, PhD, CCC-SLP.
