Summary: No national or international consensus exists on the delivery of care specific to pre-operative and post-operative audiologic cochlear implant evaluation and management. As such, decision-making regarding testing methods is largely made by the professional judgement of the clinician, which can bring with it discrepancies in testing that lead to inconsistent access to cochlear implants. This session discusses these discrepancies and provides a set of guidelines clinicians can use to refer patients for a cochlear implant evaluation. The session addresses the importance of a multidisciplinary approach when evaluating candidates for cochlear implants. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: There is not much consensus or standardization in the practices professionals use to measure outcomes for cochlear implant (CI) recipients. This session examines outcome measurement, providing clear and concise recommendations for assessment of outcomes in adult and pediatric CI recipients. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

Summary: This session discusses the current parameters for identifying cochlear implant candidates and provides an update on cochlear implantation that aims to clarify misconceptions that may influence referral patterns. The speaker points out resources that clinicians can use to offer comprehensive, authoritative information on cochlear implantation candidacy to their patients. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Audiology 2019: Cochlear Implants.”

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: Service delivery in the schools is not one size fits all. This course – part of a series that proposes practical approaches to overcoming the big challenges school-based SLPs face – examines strategies for identifying practical, realistic, and optimal service delivery approaches tailored to the students on your caseload and the conditions in your school. Using traditional speaker instruction, case examples, and practice activities, the course explores accessible tools to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of particular service delivery approaches, including pull-out services and in-classroom services, and helps you select the right option for a particular situation or student.

Summary: School-based SLPs don't have enough time, and neither do students. This course – part of a series that proposes practical approaches to overcoming the big challenges school-based SLPs face – emphasizes how to use your role as a "coach" and "independence facilitator" to make better use of time and confront the ever-present challenge of time constraints. The speaker will guide you through an activity designed to identify implementable solutions that are tailored to your particular circumstances.

Summary: To make a difference for our students we can’t work alone; yet, collaboration is hard. This course – part of a series that proposes practical approaches to overcoming the big challenges school-based SLPs face – focuses on concrete, realistic strategies for making collaboration work in schools, using case scenarios to explore different implementations of collaboration. The course guides you through practice activities designed to identify solutions tailored to your environment and the unique communication needs of your students. The course also includes strategies that will make you a more effective advocate at all levels – for your students, yourself, and the concept of collaborative services in general.

Summary: Working at the “top of the license” requires SLPs to take a close look at their workload while balancing the need to support a collaborative school culture. This course – the first in a series that proposes practical approaches to overcoming the big challenges school-based SLPs face – will help you analyze your workload while considering the question, “What really requires my expertise?” The speaker will help you explore the underlying issues you face in your school and examine the many hats SLPs wear. Before you can determine what could be, it’s important to first figure out what is, and this course is your starting point.

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: SLPs who work with children who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) need a broad base of knowledge in evidence-based assessment, system designs, and implementation practices, particularly as technological innovations in AAC proliferate. This journal self-study explores of all of the above. The first article provides a useful framework for assessment that distinguishes essential components according to the child’s motor and cognitive abilities. Two articles examine design features: The first examines consistency of symbol location to increase efficiency, and the second looks at characteristics of naturalistic displays and their effects on gaze behavior according to clinical profiles. The final article in this self-study reviews practices for training communication partners of children who use AAC.
