These Four Walls: Using the environment to support persons with dementia
Presented by Jennifer Brush, MA, CCC-SLP
Course: #7089 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Older adults and people with dementia experience a variety of sensory changes that affect their ability to communicate and function independently.

Speech-language pathologists will learn how to address these environmental barriers as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for older adults with dementia. Examples for research on the physical and social environment will be shared.

Video-based Interventions for Children with ASD Using iPads and Mobile-based Technologies
Presented by Gemma White, BSc (Hons), CCC-SLP
Course: #7069 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
"Video-based interventions" is a broad term that includes video modeling, video prompting, video self-monitoring, computer-based video instruction and video priming. These interventions rely on procedures related to principles of observational learning and imitation, and the preference of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) for visual processing and visual learning approaches contributes to the success of these interventions with that population. They can be used to target a wide range of outcomes, including increasing social interactions, developing use of language and communication, teaching functional skills, and increasing the consistency of appropriate behaviors as well as reducing maladaptive behaviors.
