2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 129 ORAL SEMINARS • FRIDAY LITERACY ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION (SLP) 1338  Beyond CVC: Practical Strategies to Close Reading & Spelling Gaps in Older Readers Who Struggle FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 205ABC (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Nancy Telian, Reading with TLC; Marianne Nice, Language and Learning Connections Older students who struggle with reading need your help! Learn to close those gaps with research based strategies for upper level word reading and spelling. Walk away with practical tips and links to downloadable activities for immediate use with difficult letter sounds, high level phonemic awareness, consonant blends, dividing and reading longer words, morphological awareness, sight words, spelling, and automaticity. 1339  Never Too Early, Never Too Late for Revolution: Helping Elementary Students Read & Write Informational Texts FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 253AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Nickola Nelson, Western Michigan U; Janet Sturm, Central Michigan U; Gary Troia, Michigan St U This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Literacy Assessment and Intervention. Take a revolutionary ride following the developmental progression taken by elementary students learning to read, write, and talk about informational texts. Participants will learn to use this information, guided by the Common Core State Standards and evidence- based practices, to optimize development of informational text writing for students with a range of disabilities. Illustrated with classroom and case examples. MOTOR SPEECH DISORDERS ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (SLP) 1340  Honing Your Ear: Identifying Salient Features of Motor Speech Disorders Across the Lifespan FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 210A (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Sue Caspari, Temple U; Heather Clark, Mayo Clinic This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Motor Speech Disorders Across the Lifespan and SIG 2: Neurogenic Communication Disorders. In this interactive session, participants will practice “honing their ears” to the perceptual characteristics of motor speech disorders. Audio and video examples of salient features of dysarthria and apraxia of speech will be presented. Participants will practice detecting and describing speech features and formulating differential diagnoses. Pediatric and adult cases involving a variety of etiologies will be included. 1341  How to Apply the Challenge Point Framework When Treating Severe Speech Disorders in Children FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 160ABC (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Susan Rvachew, McGill U; Tanya Matthews, McGill U; Françoise Brosseau-Lapré, Purdue U; Alexandra Barbeau-Morrison, McGill U The challenge point framework relates the potential learning benefit of speech practice to functional task difficulty and the skill level of the learner. Participants will learn how to identify important conditions of practice and modify them to optimize learning by observing video of speech therapy sessions to treat Childhood Apraxia of Speech or motor speech disorders secondary to Down syndrome. SPEECH SOUND DISORDERS IN NORMAL-HEARING CHILDREN (SLP) 1342  Beyond Sounds: Increasing Participation for Children With Severe Speech Sound Disorders (SSSD) FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 109AB (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Rebecca McCauley, The Ohio St U; Amy Sonntag, The Ohio St U This presentation introduces strategies for increasing successful communication and participation for children with severe speech sound disorders, including accepting multimodal communication such as unaided/ aided AAC, working with listeners to increase comprehensibility, and repairing communication breakdowns. Strategies for assessing progress in participation will also be presented. Case examples and exercises are designed to help participants plan implementation of their learning. 1343  Visual Biofeedback Treatment Approaches for Persistent Speech Errors FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 156AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jonathan Preston, Syracuse U; Tara McAllister, New York U; Elaine Hitchcock, Montclair St U This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Speech Sound Disorders in Normal- Hearing Children and Speech and Language Science. Clients whose speech errors do not respond to traditional treatment may benefit from alternative approaches. This invited session will provide evidence-based discussion and demonstrations of three visual biofeedback technologies for remediating persisting speech sound disorders: ultrasound, EPG, and visual- acoustic biofeedback. Both clinical feasibility and the strength of the evidence base will be reviewed for each approach. SWALLOWING/FEEDING AND ASSOCIATED DISORDERS (SLP) 1344  Evidence into Practice: The Evolution of Feeding Services in the NICU FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 204AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Pamela Dodrill, Brigham & Women’s Hosp; Memorie Gosa, U of Alabama This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Swallowing/Feeding and Associated Disorders. This session will discuss advancing medical management in the NICU, resulting changes in the preterm population, and the implication of these changes on feeding issues and management. The theory and evidence behind feeding therapy strategies will be discussed, as well as the role of the SLP within the NICU.
