Revolutionary Learning. Evolutionary Practice. November 15-17 Boston, MA

  • Pre-Convention Workshops

  • Workshops offered for ASHA continuing education units (ASHA CEUs) or professional development hours (PDHs)—sponsored by the Massachusetts Speech-Language Hearing Association or the American Board of Intraoperative Monitoring—will take place on Wednesday, November 14, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

    Workshop tickets are available for purchase through registration. Tickets are $80 each, however, some specific discounts are offered. Tickets for PC01 are $40 each for members of the American Board of Intraoperative Monitoring; tickets for PC02, PC03 and PC04 are $40 for members of any one of the New England state speech-language-hearing associations.

    You may purchase tickets even if you do not plan to attend the ASHA Convention itself; however, you'll still need to complete the full registration process. In the registration system, select the "Wednesday Only" option for $0, which will allow you to add tickets for the Wednesday workshops. You will pay only for the workshop you select, and you will not be registered for the ASHA Convention, which begins on Thursday.

    PC01: Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring 101: Fundamentals of IONM (Authors: Gregory Mannarelli, William Mustain, Emily Ward, Lindsay Claytor)

    This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, the American Board of Intraoperative Monitoring. This course is intended for the "IONM curious" or anyone looking for a neuroanatomy refresher course. Whether you are a student or a seasoned professional, we will take the fundamental skills you acquired as an audiologist and apply them to IONM. This course will also review the critical neuroanatomy of the central and peripheral nervous systems used in IOMN.

    PC02: The Deglutition Project: Physiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment (Author: Ianessa Humbert)

    This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, the Massachusetts Speech-Language Hearing Association. There have been increasing calls for a shift in the practice patterns of speech-language pathologists who treat dysphagia. This includes demands for greater understanding and clinical application of the fundamentals of normal and disordered swallowing physiology. This course will “jump-start” clinician knowledge of swallowing physiology and its application to dysphagia diagnosis and treatment.

    PC03: Dynamic Vocabulary Instruction: Engaging Strategies for Learners of All Ages (Author: Lesley Maxwell)

    This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, the Massachusetts Speech-Language Hearing Association. Vocabulary plays a foundational role in the development of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Participants will learn evidence and curriculum based approaches for selecting vocabulary target words and developing intervention plans. Each clinician will walk away with a toolkit full of practical strategies and engaging activities to build vocabulary with language learners of all ages.

    PC04: Advancing the Scholarship & Practice of Teaching and Learning Science in CSD (Authors: Sarah Ginsberg, Donald Finan, Rene Gifford, Steven Surrency)

    This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, the Massachusetts Speech-Language Hearing Association. This course promotes best practice in teaching CSD speech, language, and hearing science courses, including innovative instruction and alternative models for delivery of quality education in the basic science foundations of the disciplines. Experts in hearing, speech, language, and SoTL will address a larger view of science education based in active learning, engagement, and other high-impact learning practices. Read more about this course [PDF].
