Aspiration Pneumonia: It's Not Just Aspiration
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
VideoAudio
Course: #8578 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Do dysphagia and aspiration inevitably lead to aspiration pneumonia? Our current evidence base suggests that the answer is, in fact, no. This course will enable clinicians to identify the clients on their caseload who are at higher risk for illness and to identify and address those risk factors that can be modified to reduce the likelihood of aspiration-related illness.

Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills - Lip Functioning
Presented by Jennifer Dahms, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarMon, Dec 10, 2018 at 10:00 am EST
Course: #8648 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 1 of the five-part series, Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills. Lip functioning is important to the efficiency of feeding. This course will discuss the types of disordered lip movements that interfere with eating and how those deficits impact the child's feeding as a whole.

Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills - Tongue Functioning
Presented by Jennifer Dahms, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarTue, Dec 11, 2018 at 10:00 am EST
Course: #8637 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 2 of the five-part series, Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills. Tongue functioning is important for the control of food and liquid during the feeding process. This course will discuss what types of disordered tongue movements are interfering with eating and how those deficits may impact the child's feeding as a whole.

Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills - Chewing Skills
Presented by Jennifer Dahms, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarWed, Dec 12, 2018 at 10:00 am EST
Course: #8639 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 3 of the five-part series, Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills. Chewing is one of the most important skills in preparing a solid bolus before swallowing. This course will discuss the types of disordered chewing patterns that interfere with eating and how those deficits may impact the child's feeding as a whole.

Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills - Swallowing Skills
Presented by Jennifer Dahms, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarThu, Dec 13, 2018 at 10:00 am EST
Course: #8640 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 4 of the five-part series, Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills. Swallowing is important for the overall safety of the feeding process. This course will discuss the types of disordered swallowing patterns that interfere with eating and how those deficits impact the child's feeding as a whole.

Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills - Full Oral Motor and Swallowing
Presented by Jennifer Dahms, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarFri, Dec 14, 2018 at 10:00 am EST
Course: #8665 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 5 of the five-part series, Improving Pediatric Feeding Assessment Skills. It is important for the clinician to identify the oral motor and swallowing components that may have deficits within an evaluation. This course will discuss which aspects of disordered eating impact a child's overall safety and efficiency.

Abnormal Findings During Endoscopy: When to Refer
Presented by Joy Hesse, MA, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #8538 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will discuss case examples of abnormal anatomy of the nasal cavity, nasopharynx, hypopharynx and larynx in adults, compiled over 20 years of evaluating and treating voice and swallowing disorders in an Otolaryngology practice.

"Normal" Anatomical Findings during Flexible Endoscopy
Presented by Joy Hesse, MA, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #8510 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will discuss anatomy of the nasal cavity, nasopharynx, oropharynx, hypopharynx and larynx in adults, as viewed endoscopically. Normal variations in anatomy that would NOT necessitate referral to an ENT will be described.

Pharmacology and Swallowing
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
VideoAudio
Course: #8464 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Speech Language Pathologists are often asked to make recommendations for safe swallowing of medications for patients with dysphagia, but have limited information about pharmacodynamics. This course will provide clinicians with the information they need to understand and manage swallowing-related medication effects, identify potential impacts of food and thickener on medication effectiveness, and prevent medication errors in their clients with dysphagia.

Treating Oral Phase Dysphagia in Adults: Principles and Evidence
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #8422 Level: Advanced2 Hours
To treat oral dysphagia, the SLP must select and use appropriate compensatory strategies, including bolus modifications and postural strategies, as well as implement rehabilitative techniques designed to achieve a change in physiologic function. Limited evidence exists for many oral phase rehabilitative techniques; therefore, this course will describe and discuss the related principles of neural plasticity, motor learning and neuromuscular treatments that the SLP must understand in order to effectively treat patients with oral dysphagia.
