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.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: What Does It Mean When a Child Talks Late?
Presented by Stephen Camarata, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7330 Level: Advanced1 Hour
When a child talks late, it could be a passing developmental phase, or a symptom of speech and/or language disorders or a more serious disability such as autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disability. The purpose of this course is to provide a framework for differential diagnosis of these conditions in late talking toddlers and preschooler children.

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Hypokinetic Dysarthria in Parkinson's Disease: Current Insights and Clinical Implications
Presented by Antje Mefferd, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7170 Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will discuss the most recent insights into factors that may contribute to hypokinetic dysarthria in speakers with Parkinson’s disease. Further, studies on cued behavioral modifications (loud, clear, slowed speech) as treatment options for hypokinetic dysarthria in Parkinson’s disease will be discussed, including studies that specifically address these behavioral approaches for speakers with deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Vanderbilt SLP Journal Club: Treatment for Communication Deficits in Primary Progressive Aphasia
Presented by Michael de Riesthal, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course: #7027 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Individuals with primary progressive aphasia (PPA) are being referred more frequently for speech-language pathology (SLP) services. This is due to improved diagnostic criteria and increased knowledge of physicians regarding the expanding treatment literature for this clinical population. In this presentation, the most current diagnostic criteria for PPA and a review of the SLP treatment literature will be discussed.
