Summary: This course includes four recorded sessions from the 2018 online conference “Improving Functional Outcomes in Aphasia.” Two of these sessions address strategies for working with special populations of people with aphasia and two other sessions explore modifications to technology and coding/documentation that may need to be made when working with individuals with aphasia. The conference included a total of 15 sessions, giving a comprehensive view of the current landscape of aphasia intervention as well as related subjects, including medical management, neuroplasticity, life participation, assessment, and more. Sessions explored practical treatment strategies to meet the needs of patients across the severity spectrum and in various treatment settings, as well as the unique needs of a range of patient subgroups.

Summary: Audiologists and speech-language pathologists may or may not be aware that an individual has been exposed to one or more types of maltreatment, including emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse and/or neglect. Maltreatment influences an individual’s neurobiological structure and function; cognitive processes such as attention, memory, social cognition, and executive function; as well as communication development and behavior. This webinar will explore the incidence of maltreatment; developmental outcomes; assessment, intervention, and prevention strategies; and the role of communication professionals.

Summary: Communication disorders in children may affect social interactions and lead to negative emotional and behavioral outcomes. This journal self-study explores well-being, resilience, and emotional competence in school-age children. The articles discuss ways to identify risk factors to emotional well-being (including victimization and bullying), assess emotional competence, and support emotional expression in children who use AAC. The final article explores counseling and the role the SLP plays in addressing emotional issues as a part of intervention.

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.

Summary: This course includes three recorded sessions from the 2018 online conference “Children With Autism: Matching Interventions to Communication Needs.” Taken together, these sessions provide practical strategies for incorporating and empowering various stakeholders – including family members, peers, educators, support personnel, and other professional team members – to support school-age students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The conference included a total of 13 sessions, with the broad goal of presenting current best practices in intervention for school-age students with ASD. Conference sessions focused on tips and strategies SLPs can use to choose the most appropriate interventions for each child using an evidence-based approach that balances family preferences, research, and clinical judgment/expertise.

Summary: Although clinicians have long understood the risks of misidentifying an English learner or nonmainstream dialect speaker with language impairment, research to date has lacked a more nuanced view of assessment within diverse populations. This journal self-study examines a variety of assessment and screening tools used with children of varying linguistic backgrounds, including speakers of rural southern dialects, speakers of African American English, and Spanish-English bilingual children.

Summary: Voice modification services for transgender individuals or those with gender-diverse identities is an emerging area of practice for SLPs. While research-based methods for services exist, many SLPs are not sufficiently prepared to serve this population. This webinar will explain the cultural and clinical factors involved in gender-based voice and communication services and describe inclusive practices to support individuals with unique perspectives and concerns. The presenters will share research and clinical cases to illustrate best practice standards for assessment and intervention. Rationales for these standards are based on research regarding communication factors that influence gender attribution by others, factors that influence speakers’ own perception and satisfaction with their voice, and effects of treatment.

Summary: This course includes four recorded sessions from the 2017 online conference “Communication Interventions for Adolescents and Adults With Autism.” Taken together, these sessions give a sense of the breadth of communication challenges that adults and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder face. These sessions also explore some distinctive strategies, specifically self-modeling and AAC interventions. The conference included a total of 16 sessions, with the broad goal of giving SLPs tools to help students and clients develop or enhance friendships and strengthen work-life relationships to support their academic and workplace success.

Summary: Distinguishing between language disorder and language difference can be a challenge when a child speaks a nonmainstream English dialect. This journal self-study presents research findings that clinicians can implement with this population in their practice. Two of the articles examine modifications to scoring procedures to correct for dialect in assessments for language impairment. The third article explores the validity of a dialect-sensitive assessment tool. The final article examines the effects of a curriculum designed to teach dialectal differences. In total, the assessment and intervention strategies and tools discussed in these articles will allow SLPs to deliver more effective services and promote academic success for children who speak nonmainstream English dialects.

Summary: This webinar will explore evidence-based methods for treating bilingual children with speech sound disorders. Participants will learn the fundamentals of typological complexity theory, discuss past treatment research in this domain, compare and contrast the complexity approach with developmental approaches to treatment, learn target goal selection, and discuss case studies related to these concepts.
