Presenter(s): A Collaborative Project of ASHA Professional Development and SIG 13, Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia)
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: Speech-language pathologists working in health care are faced with many challenges, including an ever-changing reimbursement and regulatory landscape and varied patient population. These challenges require ongoing education and training, as well as knowledge of evidence-based practices and appropriate roles and responsibilities. This self-study addresses issues that SLPs working with dysphagia need to consider so that they can help their patients achieve the best possible clinical outcomes. The course begins with a discussion of the role of the SLP in addressing cough and then delves into a further discussion of sensory processing and how that may affect swallowing. It continues with a detailed description of issues the SLP must consider in long-term care settings and when providing palliative care. SLPs working with individuals with dysphagia can use this information to improve services and advocate for their role in the challenging health care environment.

Summary: Differential diagnosis of stuttering from cluttering, atypical disfluency, language-disorder-related disfluency, and covert stuttering can be confusing and challenging. This webinar will provide strategies and methods for differential diagnosis of these disorders as well as ideas for developing treatment plans for each.

Summary: This course provides an overview of the documentation requirements for Medicare reimbursement for dysphagia-related services, including evaluation, treatment plans, treatment notes, progress notes, discharge summaries, and common diagnostic and procedure codes. The speaker discusses frameworks – including the SMART and International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) frameworks – to help focus treatment plans on meaningful, measureable, and functional goals, giving examples of long- and short-term goals. The course also includes tips for streamlining documentation and suggestions for documenting progress to show skilled service.

Summary: This course includes five recorded sessions from the 2016 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Patients With Dementia.” These sessions focus on key components of functional assessment and treatment of dementia within the constraints of current service delivery models. The conference included a total of 13 sessions, with the broad goal of describing a range of evidence-based clinical care techniques to get to the heart of patient-centered dementia care.

Summary: Stuttering is a complex disorder that can lead to social, emotional, and academic difficulties. Clinicians treating children who stutter must consider many factors during assessment and intervention. The articles in this clinical forum describe approaches to evidence-based practice (EBP) that balance available research with clinical expertise, while also considering the needs and desires of the patient and family. Four fluency experts use case studies to describe how they make decisions about stuttering management for a young child as well as an adolescent. Clinicians can use this information to guide how they incorporate the three components of EBP – research evidence, clinical expertise, and client preferences – into their own practice with children who stutter.
Presenter(s): Vivian Sisskin, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-F
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This webinar presents assessment and treatment strategies that lead to personalized, functional, and meaningful outcomes for adults who stutter. Speaker Vivian Sisskin uses video clips of person-centered approaches to diagnostic interviews and intervention sessions to illustrate key concepts.
Presenter(s): Dan Hudock, PhD, CCC-SLP; Chad Yates, PhD
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This on demand webinar will provide practical, evidence-based strategies that target the psychological, emotional, and social domains of stuttering (the lower, underwater mass of the iceberg) to help clients progress from tendencies of avoidance to acceptance and openness. The speakers will discuss how to integrate basic interpersonal counseling strategies into person-centered treatment and then will guide attendees through creating acceptance-based holistic goals and objectives and documenting progress.
Credit(s): PDHs: 5.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.5
Summary: This activity is a grouping of studies related to the understanding stuttering throughout the life span. The activity is based on articles related to attentional focus on motor control in people who stutter (PWS) and the relationship to social stress, acoustic measures of emotion in children who stutter, a study of covert stuttering throughout the lifespan, vocational stereotyping of PWS by human resource preprofessionals, and audio-based podcasts to assist in self-help for PWS. Together, these articles investigate important measures in understanding stuttering and how researchers and clinicians can better understand the condition of stuttering.

Summary: This on demand webinar will provide guidelines for dismissal from stuttering treatment to create a safety net for children who stutter. The speakers will discuss common barriers to appropriate discharge and strategies for overcoming these barriers so SLPs can support children to enhance quality of life and develop communication confidence. The webinar will discuss establishing person-centered, individualized, and measurable goals at the time of evaluation; ensuring client-driven and dynamic treatment; using goals to guide decisions about dismissal; and providing ongoing support and maintenance during and following dismissal. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 4: Fluency and Fluency Disorders.
