Examining Our Attitudes toward Clinical Supervision
Presented by Jennifer Kerr, MS, CCC-SLP
Course: #7124 Level: Introductory1 Hour
Attitude is everything! We expect professional and positive attitudes from our supervisees, yet do we hold ourselves to the same standards? Attitude is the foundation for our behavior, but how many of us can describe our attitude beyond surface terms like “positive” or “negative"? What shapes your attitude toward supervising? This course will introduce you to “SWOT,” an efficient tool to identify Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats and will reveal how pinpointing these components can help you define your attitude and improve supervisory skills and relationships.

What Now? Resolving Ethical Dilemmas
Presented by Lissa Power-deFur, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7100 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Ethical dilemmas are common in any work setting, including the schools, where they are often complicated by the legal, regulatory and policy requirements. This session will review the ASHA Code of Ethics, helping participants explore the four principles and their rules of ethics. These ethical principles and rules will be compared and contrasted with various policy and legal requirements practitioners face in the schools (e.g., special education eligibility requirements, Medicaid billing requirements). After discussion of an ethical decision-making model, it will be applied to a variety of ethical challenges that are common in the schools. Participants will apply the model to various ethical scenarios, looking for positive resolutions for the dilemmas.

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. Communication and swallowing dysfunction that results from aging or dementia can be exacerbated by environmental barriers such as inadequate lighting, noisy conditions, poor or absent environmental cues, and visual clutter. 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.
