Developing a Successful Simulation-Based Curriculum
Presented by Leigha Jansen, EdD, CCC-A
VideoAudio
Course: #7575 Level: Introductory1 Hour
Simulation-based clinical education provides students with a sophisticated, controlled, learner-centered experience that allows for repeated practice of clinical decision-making skills in a risk-free environment. The success of a simulation-based curriculum is determined by a well-designed teaching plan founded on strong instructional guidance. Simulation activities, regardless of the modality, must support the learning objectives of a course, as well as utilize an evidence-based teaching approach to promote higher levels of cognitive function, including analysis, synthesis and evaluation (Bloom, 1956), and facilitate student learning. This course will review the practical aspects of implementing simulation into Communication Sciences & Disorders (CSD) clinical education using an evidence-based instructional model.

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Target Selection in Speech Therapy: Is a Non-Developmental Approach More Efficient Than a Developmental Approach?
Presented by Sherine R. Tambyraja, PhD, Jennifer T. Dunkle, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #7551 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, “For a preschool student with a severe phonological disorder, will incorporating a non-developmental target sequence be a more efficient approach than a developmental target sequence for improving speech sound production?” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A good assessment tool for this course is the Goldman-Fristoe Test of Articulation - 3rd Edition (GFTA-3).

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Making Evidence-Based Decisions Regarding Service Delivery for School-age Students Participating in Narrative Intervention
Presented by Jayne Brandel, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #7552 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 students with language disorders and those who have low language skills benefit more from classroom-based instruction on narratives or from instruction outside of the classroom to improve comprehension of and retelling of narratives?” 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 Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals – 5th Edition (CELF-5).
