Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Treatment for Communication Deficits in Primary Progressive Aphasia
Presented by Michael de Riesthal, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7027 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Individuals with primary progressive aphasia (PPA) are being referred more frequently for speech-language pathology (SLP) services. This is due to improved diagnostic criteria and increased knowledge of physicians regarding the expanding treatment literature for this clinical population. In this presentation, the most current diagnostic criteria for PPA and a review of the SLP treatment literature will be discussed.

Clinical Application of Research Methodology for Phoneme-Based Rehabilitation for Anomia
Presented by Jennifer Kerr, MS, CCC-SLP
Course: #7011 Level: Advanced1.5 Hour
Traditional therapy approaches for anomia typically focus on compensatory approaches, such as semantic feature analysis and circumlocution, or on whole word naming drills which, unfortunately, show little if any direct generalization in improving naming and word finding to variable communicative contexts. This course will review the research of Diane Kendall, PhD and colleagues and will present a case study which hypothesizes that a different approach, namely phoneme-based rehabilitation, has greater far-reaching effects and can directly improve naming skills across multiple contexts via the application of principles of neuroplasticity and consideration of parallel-distributed processing (PDP) models of communication.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for SLPs: Applications for Counseling, Behavioral Change, and Clinical Supervision
Presented by William Evans, MS, CCC-SLP
Course: #7006 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will teach specific ways to apply Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in the clinical practice of speech-language pathology. It will demonstrate how CBT can support effective patient counseling, provide a set of concrete tools to promote compensatory strategy use and functional behavioral change, and explain ways to understand and address common maladaptive beliefs experienced by students and beginning clinicians. Case examples will be provided from the presenter’s experience with the adult acquired brain injury population.

Behavioral Management Strategies for SLPs
Presented by Erin Savidge, M.Ed

Mounting Speech Generating Devices and Tablets to Wheelchairs
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Course: #6989 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will provide an overview of mounting systems used to secure speech generating devices, notebooks and tablets to wheelchair frames. These systems mount a device for visual regard, access, safety from theft and protection from falling. We will review system components and mounting guidelines. Speech language pathologists need to be familiar with mounting so that this equipment can be ordered with devices used for communication to support the best outcome for the client.

Visual Supports and Dementia: Facilitating Interaction and Participation
Presented by Kristin Whitfield, MA, CCC-SLP
Course: #6985 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
People with dementia experience difficulties with memory, communication, and participation in everyday activities. When these same characteristics are seen in individuals with different diagnoses (e.g., Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Aphasia, Traumatic Brain Injury, and ALS) professionals are quick to consider the use of visual supports. This course will provide SLPs with both the research base and practical examples for introducing many forms of visual support to their clients with dementia.
