Summary: This course includes five recorded sessions from the 2018 online conference “Improving Functional Outcomes in Aphasia.” These sessions discuss specific treatment approaches for particular challenges and deficits that may affect individuals with aphasia. The conference included a total of 15 sessions, giving a comprehensive view of the current landscape of aphasia intervention as well as related subjects, including medical management, neuroplasticity, life participation, assessment, and more. Sessions explored practical treatment strategies to meet the needs of patients across the severity spectrum and in various treatment settings, as well as the unique needs of a range of patient subgroups.

Summary: Young children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) are at risk for difficulties in phonological awareness, which impedes their early reading skills. Incorporating phonological awareness into speech treatment for children with CAS can improve their motor speech as well as early literacy skills. This session discusses the use of dynamic tactile temporal cueing (DTTC) to achieve the correct sequencing of articulatory gestures and explore how to incorporate phonics and phonological awareness instruction for pre-practice and correction of speech sound errors. This holistic approach allows the child to achieve better speech intelligibility while receiving explicit instruction to support a foundation for early reading skills. This course is a recorded session from the 2019/2020 online conference “Innovative Methods for Preschool Assessment, Collaboration, and Treatment.”

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: SLPs frequently evaluate and provide rehabilitation services to patients with sudden changes in cognitive status. This session will provide a foundation for understanding delirium—one of the most common reasons for acute cognitive change among older adults. As a symptom of other underlying medical issues, delirium frequently goes unrecognized or is misattributed as a mental health or primary neurologic issue, which leads to inaccurate treatment and recovery approaches. This session will help SLPs recognize delirium and improve early detection and treatment for patients in hospitals and nursing home settings.

Summary: Neurocognitive and communication rehabilitation in patients with brain tumors is different than recovery after stroke or traumatic brain injury. This session describes basic characteristics of various types of brain tumors, current treatment options, associated sequale, and expected prognosis. Diagnostic and rehabilitation considerations are reviewed as they relate to speech, language, cognition, and swallowing to help inform the most effective SLP treatment plan. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Cancer Care: Enhancing Communication, Swallowing, and Quality of Life.”
Presenter(s): Jacqueline Hinckley, PhD, CCC-SLP; Tami Howe, PhD, CCC-SLP; Darlene S. Williamson, MA, CCC-SLP

Summary: This course includes three recorded sessions from the 2018 online conference “Improving Functional Outcomes in Aphasia.” These sessions include practical tips for creating personalized assessments and interventions to improve the everyday experiences of individuals with aphasia. The conference included a total of 15 sessions, giving a comprehensive view of the current landscape of aphasia intervention as well as related subjects, including medical management, neuroplasticity, life participation, assessment, and more. Sessions explored practical treatment strategies to meet the needs of patients across the severity spectrum and in various treatment settings, as well as the unique needs of a range of patient subgroups.

Summary: This session discusses various testing options for assessing adults and adolescents with TBI, including self-report measures, standardized assessments, and functional evaluation procedures. The speaker uses clinical case examples across these testing domains to illustrate the usefulness of the tools and how they can help alleviate assessment challenges clinicians often face. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Individuals With Traumatic Brain Injuries.”

Summary: This course includes four recorded sessions from the 2016 online conference "Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Patients With Dementia." These sessions focus on identification and management of individuals with primary progressive aphasia, Alzheimer’s disease, other major types of dementia, and mild cognitive impairment. 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.
