Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Precision Early Intervention: Matching Child Characteristics to Treatment
Presented by Stephen Camarata, PhD, CCC-SLP
Live WebinarTue, Dec 18, 2018 at 2:00 pm EST
Course: #8698 Level: Advanced1 Hour
When a late talking toddler or preschool child requires intervention, there is considerable variation in symptomatology. Therefore, a “one size fits all” intervention approach is not effective. Treatment can focus on any of a number of features seen in late onset of talking, including speech disorder, language disorder or even more severe conditions such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or Intellectual Disability. This course will provide information on how to individualize intervention for late talking toddlers and preschoolers.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Technology and Autism: A Refocus on Parent-Child Interaction
Presented by Anna Ausborn Kulaski, MS, CCC-SLP, Daniel Shaw, MS, CCC-SLP
Course: #8458 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Children with autism struggle with social engagement. Given Western society’s emphasis on academic learning and technology, a perfect storm is brewing with implications for connectedness to the social world. This course will discuss the obstacles technology can present to social engagement, and strategies to train parents to use technology to build functional communication skills.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Executive Functions and Childhood Stuttering
Presented by Hatun Zengin-Bolatkale, PhD, CCC-SLP, Robin Michael Jones, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #8386 Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will provide a brief overview on the construct of executive functions, in particular those that may relate to childhood stuttering. Empirical evidence on the role of executive functions in childhood stuttering as well as clinical implications for assessment and treatment will be discussed.

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.

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.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Differentiating Stuttering Persistence and Recovery
Presented by Ellen M. Kelly, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7926 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Recent findings of longitudinal studies of children who stutter have advanced our understanding of stuttering persistence and recovery. These findings will be presented along with implications for assessment and treatment of developmental stuttering.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Complex Syntax Skills of Children with Specific Language Impairment: Where are we?
Presented by C. Melanie Schuele, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7870 Level: Advanced1 Hour
The evidence base related to the complex syntax skills of children with specific language impairment (SLI) is growing. This course will review several articles to summarize how the evidence applies to clinical practice, and discuss what remains to be explored.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Seizure Disorders and the Effects of Antiepileptic Medications on Cognitive-Communicative Functions
Presented by Rima Abou-Khalil, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7693 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Epilepsy is commonly associated with cognitive disturbances, and the medications used to control seizures may also result in cognitive changes. Medications that affect cognition, either positively or negatively, will be discussed with their effects. This course is open captioned.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Managing Communication Deficits in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Presented by Sarah Whyte, MS, CCC-SLP
Course: #7612 Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will provide information on the role of the SLP in the management of communication deficits in individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and how those deficits correspond with speech production decline and defined stages of augmentative/alternative communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT) intervention. This course is open-captioned.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Temperament and Childhood Stuttering: Theory, evidence, and clinical practice
Presented by Robin Michael Jones, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7416 Level: Advanced1 Hour
The purpose of this course is to provide a brief overview of the construct of temperament, including individual differences in reactivity and regulation, especially with regard to childhood stuttering. Empirical evidence and theoretical perspectives on the role of temperament in childhood stuttering will be discussed, with special emphasis on its relevance to clinical practice in speech-language pathology.
