124 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 Oral Seminars • Friday ACADEMIC AND CLINICAL EDUCATION (GI) 1300 Connecting Clinical Teaching to Clinical Practice: Practical Examples in CSD FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 107A (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Rebecca Affoo, Central Michigan U; Angela Dietsch, U of Nebraska-Lincoln; Sarah Ginsberg, Eastern Michigan U; Jerry Hoepner, U of Wisconsin - Eau Claire; Abby Hemmerich, U of Wisconsin - Eau Claire Signature pedagogy in CSD has been criticized for its teaching-centric lecture format at the expense of helping students develop the clinical problem-solving skills required for a lifetime of practice and learning. This session will present evidence-based educational practices that may promote deeper learning and stimulate discussion around pedagogical changes to CSD programs that may facilitate the development of successful clinician-scientists. 1301 Enhancing Skills as a Site Visitor FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 103 (Lvl 1) Advanced; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Tess Kirsch, ASHA; Stephen Oshrin, U of Southern Mississippi; Lauren Bland, Western Kentucky U; Jaynee Handelsman, U of Michigan Med Ctr; Carolyn Higdon, U of Mississippi; Katandria Love Johnson, K&K Services, Inc./Cook Children’s Health Care System A session designed for current CAA site visitors, attendees will participate in facilitated group discussions in which they will develop and share strategies for improving data collection, analysis, and reporting skills. Attendees will discuss best practices for assessing quality in academic and clinical education. 1302 Parent-Child Interaction Therapy: Outcomes of A Family- Based Intervention Targeting Language, Behavior, & Maternal Sensitivity FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 152 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Elizabeth Adams Costa, The River Sch; Lori Day, Gallaudet U; Colleen Caverly, The River Sch; Nancy Mellon, The River Sch; Meredith Ouellette, The River Sch; Dorothy White, The George Washington U Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) can be adapted as an effective intervention for children with hearing loss that targets language, behavior, and maternal sensitivity. A study of PCIT for children with hearing loss revealed significant changes in parent engagement, and increases in child utterances. Techniques to effectively promote change in parent language input and child management will be discussed and demonstrated. AUDITORY/CENTRAL AUDITORY PROCESSING (GI) 1303 School-Based Management of Auditory Processing Dysfunction in ASD: Speech- Language Pathology & Audiology FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 209 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Lauren Mathews, U of North Texas; Erin Schafer, U of North Texas Evidence supports the presence of severe auditory deficits in ASD compared to neurotypical peers in the areas of auditory attention, speech recognition in noise, and physiological processing. This presentation will provide an overview of evidence-based intervention strategies for the school setting. These strategies include one-on-one auditory training in noise, dichotic training, and the use of remote-microphone technology in the classroom. AUGMENTATIVE AND ALTERNATIVE COMMUNICATION (AAC) (SLP) 1304 Assessing Alternative Access Technologies for AAC: Occupational Therapy Assessment of Operational Competence FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 154 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): John Costello, Boston Children’s Hosp; Jennifer Buxton, Boston Children’s Hosp; Peggy Dellea, Boston Children’s Hosp; Loren McMahon, Boston Children’s Hosp This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). In the field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), therapists make recommendations with guidance from Communication Competence Framework, (linguistic, strategic, social, and operational competencies; Light, 1989). Physical access is an integral part of operational competencies for AAC. OTs are uniquely positioned to identify access barriers and provide client-centered solutions. Presentation will explore positioning, mounting, and access for successful AAC use. 1305 Communication Strategies for AAC Users with Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 211 (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kiley Bunce, Perkins Sch for the Blind; Lindy Pabian, Perkins Sch for the Blind; Chrissy Tripoli, Perkins Sch for the Blind; Jessica Tully, Perkins Sch for the Blind Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) is the number one cause of visual impairment in developed countries. CVI greatly impacts a person’s access to materials, including AAC systems. We will give an overview of CVI and associated red flags (e.g., motor impairment), explain how it impacts learning and communication, and explore strategies for implementing individualized CVI accommodations into evaluation and treatment.
