Text
Course: #8086 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course provides a discussion of key facts regarding current views about stuttering in preschool and young school-age children in an engaging Q&A format. The authors specifically focus on characteristics of stuttering in children, ages 2 to 6. They clarify how stuttering differs from the typical disfluencies that all of us experience at times. Importantly, they discuss when therapy is needed in this age group. Finally, the goals of the diagnostic evaluation are explained. This article will certainly help clinicians to become better-prepared to help children who stutter and their families.

Pearson's EBP Brief: Auditory-Verbal Therapy as an Intervention Approach for Children Who Are Deaf: A Review of the Evidence
Presented by Lisa Bowers, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #8073 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “Would young deaf children who participate in AVT services provided by an LSLS cert. AVT demonstrate gains in language skills similar to their typical hearing peers?
” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the SCAN-3:C (Keith, 2009).

This collection of reviews highlights a month of clinically relevant research findings for pediatric and school-based SLPs. Topics include augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), preschool stuttering, developmental language disorder, and measuring student outcomes.

Back-To-Basics on Videofluoroscopic Swallow Study: Safety & Efficiency and the Underlying Structure & Physiology
Presented by Karen Sheffler, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #8044 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Explore the latest evidence and expert advice about the Videofluoroscopic Swallow Study (aka, Modified Barium Swallow Study). This course will discuss the reason for referral, the exam and analysis, and recommendations. Rather than just following the bolus and reporting on aspiration, it is important to determine the pathophysiology behind the aspiration and residue. This course will cover what can be done to improve the swallow and make appropriate referrals and recommendations to guide treatment. Learn what can be offered (e.g., pulmonary clearance techniques, oral hygiene) and what options are available based on the patient's goals, when aspiration cannot be prevented.

Promoting the 3:1 Caseload Model Effectively

Pearson's EBP Briefs: An Evidence-Based Approach to Teach Inferential Language During Interactive Storybook Reading With Young Children
Presented by Elizabeth Kelley, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #8072 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “Would young children demonstrate improvements in inferential question-answering after an interactive book-reading intervention that targeted inferential questions, in comparison to an intervention that targeted overall language ability?
” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the CELF-5 Metalinguistics (Wiig & Secord, 2014).

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Do Patients Treated for Voice Therapy With Telepractice Show Similar Changes in Voice Outcome Measures as Patients Treated Face-to-Face?

Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “Do patients treated for voice therapy with telepractice show similar changes in voice outcome measures as patients treated face-to-face?” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the CLQT+ (Helm-Estabrooks, 2017).

Principles and Evidence: Treatment of Pharyngeal Dysphagia
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
