110 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 LITERACY ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION (SLP) 1143 Interprofessional Presentation of Effective & Efficient Instruction of Basic, Written-Language Skills for All Students TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 212 (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jean Tucker, The Spell of Language, LLC; Will Burrow, dba Burrow Consulting; Chris Culver, Kensingthon NH Sch Dist; Lisa Zack-Swasey, Brentwood, NH Sch Dist Review a comprehensive program developed by a speech-language pathologist and teachers for instructing fundamental skills underlying success in written-language acquisition. Learn an effective and efficient way to teach the vowel system. Leave with knowledge of how to create and use exercises that combine phonemic awareness with phonics in word learning, spelling with grammar, and spelling with morphology. MOTOR SPEECH DISORDERS ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (SLP) 1144 Dynamic Assessment & Treatment in CAS: DEMSS & DTTC TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 210C (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Edythe Strand, Mayo Coll of Medicine; Rebecca McCauley, The Ohio St U This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Motor Speech Disorders Across the Lifespan. This invited session focuses on the advantages of dynamic assessment and treatment for children with childhood apraxia of speech. An assessment tool, the Dynamic Evaluation of Motor Speech Skill (DEMSS) and a treatment method, Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) are described and discussed. Video examples are provided. SPEECH AND LANGUAGE SCIENCE (SLP) 1145 Multimedia Learning: Importance of Learners’ Verbal Ability & Presentation Modality TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 152 (Lvl 1) Introductory; Research AUTHOR(S): Sunjung Kim, U of Central Arkansas; Caylin Thompson, U of Central Arkansas; Emily Thompson, U of Central Arkansas To facilitate learning effectiveness in the multimedia environment, we examined the impact of individual cognitive differences and instructional methods on students’ learning. Both in the narration+image and text+image presentations, verbal ability was a strong predictor of learning, whereas visual ability and prior knowledge were not. We will discuss instructional strategies to improve verbal ability in the multimedia environment. SWALLOWING/FEEDING AND ASSOCIATED DISORDERS (SLP) 1146 Pediatric ICU Showcase: Dysphagia Management in the Trenches TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 157ABC (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Erin Kohman, Texas Children’s Hosp; Chelsea Young, Texas Children’s Hosp; Kimberly King, Texas Children’s Hosp This session will condense the research on SLP evaluation and treatment of dysphagia in congenital and acquired disorders often seen in the pediatric ICU. Case studies from a large pediatric hospital will be presented, following the patient from inception of the evaluation in ICU, through the completion of evidenced-based treatment practices and problem solving, as well as outpatient follow up. 1147 Relationship between Laryngeal Sensation, Length of Intubation, & Aspiration in Acute Respiratory Failure Survivors TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 103 (Lvl 1) Advanced; Research AUTHOR(S): James Borders, Boston Med Ctr; Daniel Fink, U of Colorado Boulder; Joseph Levitt, Stanford U; Jeff McKeehan, U of Colorado Boulder; Edel McNally, Boston Med Ctr; Alix Rubio, Boston Med Ctr; Rebecca Scheel, Boston Med Ctr; Jonathan Siner, Yale New Haven Hosp; Stephanie Gomez Taborda, Boston Med Ctr; Rosemary Vojnik, Stanford U; Heather Warner, Southern Connecticut St U; S. David White, U of Colorado Boulder; Susan Langmore, Boston U; Marc Moss, U of Colorado Boulder; Gintas Krisciunas, Boston U Sensation is critical for airway protection and safe swallowing. However, current understanding of laryngeal sensory deficits in post-extubation populations is limited. This prospective study examined the relationship between patient characteristics, laryngeal sensory deficits, and aspiration in acute respiratory failure survivors. To our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the role of laryngeal sensory impairments in this population. TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (GI) 1148 Older Adults & Traumatic Brain Injury – Consequences & Complications TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 156C (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Pamela Smith, Bloomsburg U This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 15: Gerontology. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) complicates aging and aging complicates TBI. Both scenarios bring clinical challenges stemming from sparse clinical data, complexity of comorbidities, and insufficient outcome assessment tools. This session will explore the issues affecting TBI in the geriatric population. VOICE AND ALARYNGEAL COMMUNICATION (SLP) 1149 Incorporating Culturally Competent Clinical Approaches in Transgender Voice & Communication Therapy TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 162AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Carolina Smith, NCCU; Grace Hao, North Carolina Central U This presentation discusses an academic and clinical training model utilized in the North Carolina Central University Transgender Voice and Communication Clinic (NCCU TVC Clinic) to prepare graduate clinicians to work with Assigned Female at Birth (AMaB) populations within a framework of cultural competence and Interprofessional training. 1150 Novel Diagnosis: Muscle Tension Dysphagia: What is it, How to Recognize it & Treat it TH 3:00PM-4:00PM / CC, 206AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Claudio Milstein, Cleveland Clinic; Christina Kang, Mayo Clinic; Michelle Adessa, Cleveland Clinic Muscle tension dysphagia (MTDg) is a novel diagnostic taxonomy describing patients with dysphagia who exhibit normal swallowing function evidenced by videofluoroscopic swallow study. Patients also demonstrate abnormal supraglottic muscle tension during laryngoscopy, signs of laryngeal hypersensitivity and laryngopharyngeal reflux. The presenters will discuss diagnostic factors, how to identify these patients, and go through successful treatment techniques to improve dysfunctional swallowing.
