Interpreting Test Scores & Key Concepts with Standardized Tests
Presented by Carolyn (Carney) Sotto, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #8295 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Many of the assessment instruments we use are norm-referenced tests that are standardized. There are certain statistical properties needed to understand the psychometric criteria of the tests, which is part of being an informed consumer. This course will help SLPs understand fundamental concepts of descriptive statistics so they can interpret test scores correctly and summarize quantitative data about their clients or patients.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Prognosis for Aphasia Across the Continuum of Care
Presented by Michael de Riesthal, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #8209 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Providing a prognosis for recovery for individuals with aphasia is an important part of clinical care, but accurate prediction is often limited. This course will discuss factors that influence recovery of language function following onset of aphasia, and biographical, behavioral, and medical variables that may aid provision of a prognosis.

Evidence-Based Interventions for Dementia: An Overview of Spaced Retrieval & Montessori
Presented by Megan L. Malone, MA, CCC-SLP
Course: #8132 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will provide an overview of two evidence-based interventions for working with persons with dementia: Montessori-Based Dementia Programming and the Spaced Retrieval technique.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Functional Imaging of Neuroplasticity in Aphasia
Presented by Stephen Wilson, PhD
Course: #8107 Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will review our current understanding of how the brain networks that underlie language processing may be functionally reorganized in aphasia. The discussion will be centered around four recent research publications.

Justifying Speech-Language Pathology Services in a Turbulent Health Care Environment
Presented by Robyn Earley, MA, CCC-SLP
Course: #8076 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Have you ever experienced the misperception that the Speech-Language Pathologist is an optional member of the rehabilitation team?

The ultimate goal of all speech-language pathology services is to improve quality of life, according to our Scope of Practice. This course will demonstrate how to measure outcomes and formulate reimbursable goals to address quality of life in aphasia.

Pearson's EBP Briefs: Which AAC Interface Design Facilitates Communicative Interactions for Persons With Nonfluent Aphasia?
Presented by Kris L. Brock, PhD, CCC-SLP
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).

Are We in Our Right Mind? Infusing Holistic Thinking and Adult Learning Theory into Service Delivery for Persons with Aphasia
Presented by Jennifer Kerr, MS, CCC-SLP
Course: #7814 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Adult patients with post-stroke aphasia are typically thrust into recovery environments that impose rigid structure and that excel at revealing disabilities versus capabilities. This course will offer a potential mindset shift, focusing on service delivery that adheres to standards of practice while promoting self-efficacy through implementation of adult learning theory principles across care settings.
