Summary: This session focuses on best practices and policies for schools to ensure that students successfully “return to learn” following a concussion/mild TBI. This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Individuals With Traumatic Brain Injuries.”
Presenter(s): Via Strong, PsyD; Rebecca Politis, MA, CCC-SLP

Summary: In this audio recording, psychologist Via Strong and SLP Rebecca Politis explore the challenges and accomplishments they had working together to treat conversion disorder in a rehab setting. They discuss how to use a collaborative approach to diagnosis, tips on communicating with school professionals to facilitate a student’s return to school, and what it takes to provide empathetic care to patients with this often-misunderstood disorder. This course is a follow-up to the 2019 webinar The SLP’s Role in Conversion Disorder.

Summary: Many children with impaired language also have problems with executive function that may affect their language development and/or their responses to language intervention. This session will explore the effects of executive function deficits on language, specifically in the context of speech-language intervention. The speaker will share strategies for identifying executive function deficits and reducing executive function demands on children during speech-language treatment. This course is a recorded session from the 2019/2020 online conference “Innovative Methods for Preschool Assessment, Collaboration, and Treatment.”

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: Many school-based personnel are unsure how to best support students with cochlear implants, and this session explores how clinicians across settings (clinics and schools) and professions (audiologists, SLPs, and educators) can work together to help students reach their goals. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”
Credit(s): PDHs: 6.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.6
Summary: This journal self-study course compares language performance in children with and without cochlear implants from preschool to 6th grade. The articles examine levels of language from phonology to prosody, offering insights into areas of strength and weakness as well as clinical directions. The first article examines consonant acquisition patterns based on hearing exposure. The second and third articles compare morphosyntactic, lexical, and phonological awareness profiles, the effect of literacy on each language skill, and types of errors produced in school-age children with and without cochlear implants. The fourth article explores differences in word-learning strategies that could affect lexical development and offers clinical suggestions based on these findings. The final article explores children’s abilities to discriminate emotional intent based on suprasegmental characteristics in the speech signal.

Summary: Conversion disorder, also commonly known as functional neurological symptom disorder, is a complex and often misunderstood condition that can affect an individual’s communication, cognition, and movement. This webinar will explore all aspects of the psychological disorder, including etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, counseling, and related issues to inform the SLP’s assessment and treatment of the disorder. The speaker will also discuss the SLP’s role specifically in working with children and teens with the disorder as they complete treatment and return to school.

Summary: This journal self-study includes select papers that were presented at the 2017 Clinical Aphasiology Conference in Snowbird, Utah. The articles reflect the wide array of topics presented on aphasia treatment, tools, and outcomes. Also included is an article that ties ideas from the conference keynote to research in communication disorders. Clinicians can expand their knowledge by learning about the current state of aphasia research.

Summary: Children’s verbal skills differ for many different reasons. Some may have a specific deficit in learning language rules and structures; for others, the differences in expression may result from underlying limitations in memory skills, or in the cognitive control and flexibility needed to plan and monitor communication. This webinar examines how limitations in working memory and other executive functions affect language and learning generally. The speaker discusses assessment and intervention strategies related to executive functions.

Summary: Evaluating and treating children with selective mutism (SM) presents challenges. These children have the ability to speak but may not do so in social situations where they feel uncomfortable and are expected to speak. A substantial number of children with SM have speech-language deficits and vocal tension, affecting their ability to vocalize and verbalize. To determine a child’s actual communication abilities and plan appropriate treatment, it is important to conduct a comprehensive evaluation with expressive output. This webinar describes a validated evaluation procedure and treatment methods to improve vocal output, enhance meaningful verbalizations, and expand language in individuals with SM.
