Outpatient Management of Speech and Swallowing After Total Glossectomy
Presented by Jodi Knott, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #9770Level: Introductory1.5 Hour
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. This course introduces a “road map” for rehabilitation and restoration of speech and swallowing, following a total glossectomy in the outpatient setting. It discusses unique treatment approaches including the use of palatal augmentation, augmentative communication, and other methods that have been successful at improving functional speech and swallowing outcomes. Sequelae of radiation therapy are also reviewed.

Inpatient Management of Speech and Swallowing After Total Glossectomy
Presented by Jodi Knott, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #9768Level: Introductory1 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. This course introduces participants to a “road map” for rehabilitation and restoration of speech and swallowing, following a total glossectomy. It discusses postoperative anatomy and physiology and the importance of preoperative counseling, along with approaches to inpatient management and the SLP’s role across the continuum of care.

Presented by Heidi Miller, MS, CCC-SLP, COM
Live WebinarThu, Sep 9, 2021 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #9850Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course focuses on the relationship between feeding and oro-myofunctional skills, from both a diagnostic and treatment perspective. Evaluation components and treatment strategies for a variety of different types of pediatric feeding disorders (PFDs) are addressed.

Dysphagia in Neurodegenerative Disease
Presented by Debra M. Suiter, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
VideoAudio
Course: #9732Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Dysphagia is common in individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson’s disease. This course discusses the underlying pathophysiology and appropriate treatment programs for each disease, as well as use of alternate methods of nutrition/hydration.

Caregiver Training for Individuals Caring for Patients with Dysphagia
Presented by Debra Suiter, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
VideoAudioText
Course: #9708Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Critically ill individuals are often unable to participate actively in clinical-decision making, and the responsibility for this often falls to the caregiver. This course addresses caregiver and clinician roles and challenges, as well as factors to consider when counseling individuals caring for patients with swallowing disorders. The Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable (CARE) Act and its applications are also discussed.

DIRFloortime®: Beyond Playing on the Floor
Presented by Joleen R. Fernald, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL
Video
Course: #9642Level: Advanced4 Hours
The DIRFloortime® framework can be used not only with children with autism, but with a wide variety of ages and diagnoses. This 4-hour master class describes DIRFloortime principles and concepts such as Functional Emotional Developmental Capacities (FEDCs) and relationship-based intervention. Case studies provide examples of goals and therapy activities, including virtual experiences, for various populations.

Anatomy & Physiology of the Upper Aerodigestive Tract: Breathing and Swallowing in Adults
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #9621Level: Advanced2 Hours
Effective management of dysphagia in adults requires thorough knowledge of the anatomy and neurophysiology of swallowing and respiration and the coordination of these functions. Shared structures and neurophysiology of the aerodigestive tract are discussed as well as diseases of the respiratory system that can impact swallowing. Examples of application of this information to the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia are provided.
