Summary: This course describes the various ways that a head and neck cancer diagnosis can impact mental health, and ways to identify when a patient may need to seek professional help from a mental health specialist. The speaker highlights how a speech-language pathologist can assist in the detection of a potential mental health disorder through use of mental health screenings and head-and-neck-specific quality-of-life measures, and discusses considerations for addressing mental health and effectively navigating challenges that may impede success during treatment and/or rehabilitation.

Summary: This course explores an effective technique for building complex narrative language and thought. By "pressing pause," SLPs and students can take time to talk about and connect "thoughts" (mental states) to elements of story grammar such as initiating events, feelings, and plans. This process is integral for discovering intentions and motivations, perspective-taking, thinking critically, solving problems, and participating in social situations. Speakers also discuss a powerful way to teach "inference" using film "jump cuts."

Summary: This course focuses on a meaning-based approach to language assessment and intervention for intentional communication skills in young children. The nonlinguistic and linguistic context support meaning-driven communication expressed with language form from the child. Speakers discuss language sample analysis and the developmental hierarchy of Language Content/Form/Use, and highlight how this approach is less biased than norm-based assessments when used with children from culturally and linguistically diverse contexts.

Summary: This session highlights recent advances in understanding language acquisition in children who are deaf/hard of hearing (DHH), with an emphasis on the acquisition of sign languages (either on their own or alongside spoken languages). Conceptual advances include: (1) a more accurate way of thinking about "average range" when interpreting research data and (2) the development of "language access profiles" as an alternative to "communication mode." Speakers present advances in measurement, by introducing three new tools that are available for clinical use: the D-LEAT, the LAPT, and the ASL-CDI 2.0. The session concludes by highlighting recent empirical discoveries about the relationship between the timing of American Sign Language (ASL) access, the amount of ASL input, and the trajectory of ASL vocabulary acquisition in DHH children from hearing families. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 2225V). It was developed by, and presenters were invited by, Listening, Language and Speech in Children Who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Content disclosure: This session covers a broad spectrum of recent research results about early language experiences and language acquisition in young deaf/hard of hearing children, including descriptions of three tools for measuring language experience and language background: D-LEAT, LAPT, and ASL-CDI 2.0.

Summary: There are many possible causes for childhood dizziness, which differs from adult dizziness. This session discusses the key components of a pediatric vestibular clinic and its staff, common etiologies of dizziness, risk factors of vestibular loss, and signs of vestibular dysfunction in children. Speakers discuss easy ways to adapt your current testing protocol and which tests might be appropriate for each age group. Finally, presenters utilize real case studies to integrate the tips, tricks, and protocols discussed. This course is a recorded session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 2157V).

The speaker reviews myths and facts about SM and explores the SLP's role in working with children with this disorder. The session includes assessment tips, evidence-based treatment strategies, and ways to support carryover of skills to other contexts and with caregivers and school staff.
