Evaluation of Speech/Resonance Disorders Secondary to Velopharyngeal Dysfunction, presented in partnership with Cincinnati Children's
Presented by Ann W. Kummer, PhD, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #7916 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Children with resonance disorders (hypernasality, hyponasality and cul-de-sac resonance) present challenges for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in all settings. This course is designed to provide simple, yet very reliable low-tech evaluation techniques for practicing SLPs who frequently or occasionally see clients with cleft palate, hypernasality, or suspected velopharyngeal dysfunction. (Part 1: Course 7915)

Anatomy and Physiology of Respiration and Swallowing
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #7949 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Effective evaluation and management of dysphagia in adults requires thorough knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of swallowing and the relationship to the functions of respiration. Structures, functions and neurophysiology of the aerodigestive tract are discussed, including detailed information about cranial nerves.

Causes and Characteristics of Resonance Disorders and Velopharyngeal Dysfunction, presented in partnership with Cincinnati Children's
Presented by Ann W. Kummer, PhD, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #7915 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. Children with resonance disorders (hypernasality, hyponasality and cul-de-sac resonance) or suspected velopharyngeal dysfunction present challenges for SLPs in all settings. This course is designed to provide information about the causes and characteristics of resonance disorders and velopharyngeal dysfunction so that these disorders can be recognized and appropriate treatment can be recommended. (Part 2: Course 7916)

Telepractice: Using Distance Technology to Connect, Communicate, & Enhance Language Learning in Young Children with Hearing Loss
Presented by K. Todd Houston, PhD, CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert AVT
Video
Course: #7948 Level: Introductory1 Hour
The use of distance technology continues to evolve, and new models of service delivery are emerging to meet the developmental and communicative needs of young children with speech, language, and listening needs. For young children born with hearing loss, telepractice service delivery models may be the most efficient way to connect families seeking services to well-trained professionals who can provide appropriate early intervention.

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Effects of Bolus Size on Swallow Safety: A Systematic Review of External Evidence
Presented by Karen Rizzo, MA, CCC-SLP, Leah Mong, MS, CF-SLP, Natalie Howard Day, MS, CF-SLP, Morgan Helser, MS, CF-SLP, Isla Katz, MS, CF-SLP, Donna Scarborough, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Text
Course: #7936 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, “Among individuals who have been diagnosed with thin liquid aspiration by instrumental evaluation, does sipping one measured small sip versus unregulated sip sizes reduce the frequency of or even completely eliminate aspiration when evaluated instrumentally?
” 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).

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Which AAC Interface Design Facilitates Communicative Interactions for Persons With Nonfluent Aphasia?
Presented by Kris L. Brock, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #7937 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, “Do persons with nonfluent aphasia demonstrate superior communicative effectiveness (e.g., more conversational turns) during augmentative/alternative communication (AAC) interventions utilizing grid displays (graphic symbols) than during AAC interventions utilizing scene displays (photographs)?” 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 WAB-R (Kertesz, 2006).

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Evidence-Based Intervention for Individuals with Acquired Apraxia of Speech
Presented by Angela Van Sickle, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #7939 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 individuals with Acquired Apraxia of Speech (AOS) demonstrate improvements for speech production with an articulatory kinematic approach or a rate/rhythm approach?” 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).

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Comparison of Parent-Implemented and Clinician-Directed Intervention for Toddlers Identified as Late Talkers: A Literature Review
Presented by Shari DeVeney, PhD, CCC-SLP, Jessica L. Hagaman, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #7938 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 a child who is a late talker show greater improvement with parent-implemented intervention models or with clinician-directed intervention models as shown by improvements in expressive language skills?
” 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 Bridge of Vocabulary (Montgomery, 2007).
