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: Knowing when, why, and who to refer for central auditory evaluation is challenging, particularly in school settings. This session will address questions that professionals who work in schools or with young people may face: Are there “red flags" for a CAPD? What will I know after the evaluation that I don’t already know? Will results change services? Are we “overtesting/over-referring”? Are there ways to provide screening and/or intervention services that align with school-based RtI/MTSS models of intervention? How can schools screen for processing issues in ways that meet students’ needs and use resources efficiently? After screening, what’s next? Are procedures different across work settings? This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: Working as a school-based SLP is exciting and rewarding-when you understand your role! This on demand webinar (available beginning April 30, 2022) provides SLPs who are new to the school setting with effective practices, resources, and an introduction to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The speakers share practical strategies to support a workload approach to services, helping you balance the work you are given with the time you have. The webinar includes tips for scheduling your days and tracking your work for maximum impact, creative service delivery models, specific intervention ideas to take back and use immediately with students, and tips for advocating for a realistic and manageable workload.

Summary: The practice of mindfulness is more than a fad - it is key to managing stress, improving awareness, and acting with intentionality. This session from ASHA's 2021 Schools Connect online conference provides tools and guides you in building a regular practice of mindfulness. The presenter addresses common misconceptions of mindfulness practice and illustrates how mindfulness can help you respond to difficult situations from a place of nonjudgmental awareness and engagement rather than responding from impulse, overreaction, or habit.

Summary: Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) often benefits children with severe disabilities. The most effective AAC systems consider the child’s individual needs and support learning and social interactions. This journal self-study explores ways to improve AAC systems to increase language skills, allow for more active participation in communication, and encourage emotional competence. Incorporating parent perceptions about AAC use into decision-making is also discussed, as are the benefits of peer involvement in communication using AAC. Clinicians will be able to incorporate strategies discussed to enhance services for children using AAC.

Summary: This on-demand webinar (available beginning August 3, 2022) describes anatomical and physiological structures and functions related to feeding and swallowing to assist clinicians in interpreting evaluation findings and selecting appropriate treatment strategies for students on their caseload. The presenter discusses sensorimotor function of the trunk, shoulders, head, and neck, as well as of the upper aerodigestive tract, and reviews oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal structures and functions. The webinar includes case studies that address the impact of impaired anatomy and physiology in students with feeding and swallowing disorders.

Summary: Mediated learning experience (MLE) is integral to dynamic assessment, an alternative to standardized testing that accounts for individuals' unique cultural and linguistic identities. In this course - which is broken into six 5-minute blocks - speaker Elizabeth Peña discusses the components of MLE and guides you through building an activity using principles of MLE.

Summary: SLPs are charged with doing more with less time. This session from ASHA's 2021 Schools Connect online conference shares a way to address caseload and time challenges. The workload calculator is a tool that can be used to critically analyze an SLP's caseload. The speaker walks learners through using the tool so you can analyze your caseload to increase workload efficiency and productivity.

Summary: This session explores the rationale for using a variety of service delivery modes to ensure elementary-age students are being served according to IDEA in the least restrictive environment (LRE). The speaker shares how SLPs can guide IEP teams to consider a variety of service delivery options. Lastly, the session discusses how to align speech-language intervention to curriculum materials and educational standards. This course is a recorded session from the 2020/2021 online conference “Practical Solutions for Elementary Assessment, Treatment, and Collaboration.”

Summary: This session integrates federal and state regulations for evaluation and eligibility for speech-language services with best practice and research in the field. The speaker explains how comprehensive evaluation and documentation of all required eligibility criteria can ensure quality services and combat the challenges of overidentification and high caseloads. This course is a recorded session from the 2020/2021 online conference “Practical Solutions for Elementary Assessment, Treatment, and Collaboration.”
