Presenter(s): Kelly Farquharson, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.25
Summary: Children with spoken language disorders often experience difficulties with reading as well. SLPs – particularly those working in school-based settings – have a responsibility to prevent, assess, and treat reading impairments. In this video course, presenter Kelly Farquharson will discuss how SLPs can approach this important clinical need from a robust and empirically supported theoretical framework, the Simple View of Reading.
Presenter(s): Nancy Creaghead, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.25
Summary: School-based SLPs strive to support their students’ success in school. Two critical components of fostering academic success are: (1) provision of services that address the curriculum and (2) collaboration with teachers to make that happen. This video course will present strategies to address both of these essential activities in the context of elementary, middle, and high school settings, including examples of effective collaboration and ideas for overcoming common barriers.
Presenter(s): Donna Henderson, PsyD
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.25
Summary: In this presentation, Donna Henderson will discuss the core features of autism as they present in children and adolescents with subtle manifestations of symptoms. She will also focus on the particular challenge of recognizing autism in girls. Then William Stixrud will discuss the motivational and self-regulatory challenges experienced by students with a mild presentation of autism and will emphasize the importance of supporting the development of autonomy.

Summary: This video program provides comprehensive information about identifying, assessing, and treating bilingual children ages 3–11 who have highly unintelligible speech. The presenter discusses case studies and current research to provide concrete solutions to common challenges such as figuring out where to begin when providing services, identifying bilingual children at-risk for other concomitant deficiencies, differentiating language difference vs. disorder, and selecting the most effective treatments.
Presenter(s): C. Melanie Schuele, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 3.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.35
Summary: Clinicians frequently find that children with speech sound disorders progress in intervention more slowly than desired, or they may make expected progress within sessions but not carry over or generalize improved speech skills to their daily activities. There is some evidence that using normalized speech sound intervention – treatment activities that reflect the real-world activities and interactions in which children communicate – can lead to more rapid increases in intelligibility. This course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to implement normalized speech sound intervention using age and developmentally appropriate curriculum-based learning activities in which the production of speech sound targets is integrated in meaningful verbal and social interactions.
Presenter(s): Judy Montgomery, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL
Credit(s): PDHs: 3.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.35
Summary: Students in grades 6–12 frequently struggle with both the content and use of academic language. As they move through the secondary grades, they are confronted with increasingly more expository language, as opposed to the mostly narrative language they saw in elementary grades. This course explores the fascinating relationship between these two language structures, which provides a strong basis for our therapeutic interventions as speech-language pathologists. Presenter Judy Montgomery provides examples of linking narratives to expository text to ultimately help students successfully use academic language at the secondary level. Montgomery shares strategies to use in different service delivery settings (one-on-one intervention vs. in the classroom).
Presenter(s): Joan Arvedson, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Credit(s): PDHs: 3.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.35
Summary: This video course presents systematic, evidence-based strategies for carrying out a comprehensive evaluation of infants and children who demonstrate signs of dysphagia and/or broader feeding problems. The course includes detailed discussion and strategies for collecting a child’s relevant history and conducting a physical examination and feeding observation. With a focus on function, the course offers guidance on interpreting evaluation findings and making optimal recommendations for next steps that promote functional outcomes. Video clips of professionals and caregivers working with infants and children, as well as discussion of case studies, enhance the learning experience.
Presenter(s): Don MacLennan, MA, CCC-SLP; McKay Moore Sohlberg, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 4.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.4
Summary: This course presents a practical framework for cognitive rehabilitation for patients suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Clinicians can use the framework to identify functional treatments that are evidence-based, matched to individualized patient needs, and feasible given the time and resource constraints of the current health care environment. The course explores specific cognitive rehabilitation interventions that patients with a brain injury may find particularly valuable and motivating. The presenters use case studies to discuss how to write functional goals and identify optimum outcome measures.
Presenter(s): Vicki A. Reed, EdD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL
Credit(s): PDHs: 5.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.5
Summary: This video course provides much-needed information on the nature of language development and impairment in adolescents, including the impact of language impairment on adolescents’ academic experiences and interpersonal relations as well as implications for their vocational and social success as adults. Using evidence and case studies, the course offers guidelines and tools for assessment of adolescent language impairment and presents key principles and strategies for intervention.
Presenter(s): Barbara D. Weinrich, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 3.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.3
Summary: Childhood and adolescent voice disorders are observed in multiple clinical settings, with many professionals having limited background or education to properly treat them. Pediatric voice disorders can have adverse effects on children and teens in classroom and social situations. This video course provides a plethora of practical information based on research and practice in a major pediatric hospital setting. Vocal hygiene, vocal function exercises, semi-occluded vocal tract exercises, and other specific techniques are discussed.
