138 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (GI) 1406 Managing Concussions in Student-Athletes at the Collegiate Level With Successful Return to Learn FR 10:30AM-11:30AM / Westin, Harbor Ballroom I Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Christa Jones, Baldwin Wallace U; Amy Larocca, Baldwin Wallace U As the impact of mTBI on student athletes becomes more apparent through research, a revolutionary approach to concussion management of collegiate students is necessary. An analysis of Baldwin Wallace University’s concussion management program from inception to current structure will provide a glimpse into the future needs of concussion management, while providing insight into effective education and practice. VESTIBULAR/BALANCE ISSUES ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (AUD) 1407 VEMP & vHIT - Evolution & Revolution of Vestibular Evaluation FR 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 109AB (Lvl 1) Advanced; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Faith Akin, Mountain Home VAMC; ETSU; Owen Murnane, Vestibular/Balance Research Lab, Mountain Home VA Med Ctr This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Vestibular/Balance Issues Across the Lifespan. The vestibular test battery has expanded to include measures of otolith organ function (vestibular evoked myogenic potentials; VEMPs) and new measures of vestibulo-ocular reflex function (video head impulse test; vHIT). This session will examine clinical utility of these tests with an emphasis on their functional impact. VOICE AND ALARYNGEAL COMMUNICATION (SLP) 1408 Lecture in Upper Airway Voice & Swallowing Science: What Happens When Patients Leave the Clinic? Assessing & Treating Voice Disorders Using Wearable Technology FR 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 206AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Robert Hillman, Massachusetts General Hosp This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 3: Voice and Voice Disorders. Clinicians currently rely on potentially unreliable patient self-report and self-monitoring to assess daily vocal behavior and compliance with voice therapy outside of the clinic. This presentation will describe the development and application of new wearable voice ambulatory monitoring and biofeedback technology to address these clinical challenges and improve the understanding, assessment, and treatment of common voice disorders. Supported by NIH-NIDCD. 1409 The Continuum of Care for Total Laryngectomy FR 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 209 (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Glenn Bunting, Massachusetts Eye & Ear; Daniel Deschler, Massachusetts Eye & Ear; Carla DeLassus Gress, Nebraska Methodist Hosp; Theresa Johnson, Massachusetts Eye & Ear; Ann Kearney, Stanford U This multidisciplinary presentation targets SLPs with limited background in laryngectomy. It focuses on service delivery as the patient transitions across the continuum from cancer diagnosis to pre-operative counseling, perioperative care, skilled inpatient, homecare and outpatient settings. The emphasis will be on the functional consequences of larynx removal and clinical problem-solving at various points of care. ACADEMIC AND CLINICAL EDUCATION (GI) 1410 Service-Learning Pedagogy: Revolutionizing Academic Instruction to Develop Socially- Aware & Civically-Engaged Future Professionals FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 159 (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Michelle Veyvoda, Iona Coll; Thomas Van Cleave, U of New Haven; Jennifer Gerometta, Iona Coll; Diane Ferrero-Paluzzi, Iona Coll; Samantha Viviano, Iona Coll There is abundant research supporting the use of service-learning pedagogy to enhance student learning and civic engagement. During this session, presenters will review the theoretical foundations of service-learning, present data from their own studies on service- learning with communication sciences and disorders students, and share best practices for developing service-learning curricula. Finally, participants will brainstorm ideas for their own service-learning classes. 1411 Adopting an Inclusive Excellence Approach to Diversity & Cultural Competence in Communication Sciences & Disorders FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 103 (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Mandy Williams, U of South Dakota; Marni Martin, U of South Dakota Inclusive Excellence is a framework for addressing diversity. It focuses on how students learn, their exposure to diverse learning outcomes, and their interaction with people from around the world. This session will explore creative ways to implement diversity and inclusiveness in the CSD curriculum. 1412 Building Intentional, Cohesive Programs of Research FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 156AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Cathy Binger, U of New Mexico; Jennifer Kent-Walsh, U of Central Florida Building long-term lines of research that lead to a cohesive body of work can be a daunting prospect for early stage researchers. In this session, we will discuss approaches that can assist in building intentional, systematic programs of research that – over time – will make a significant contribution to communication sciences and disorders. 1413 Distance & Telepractice Training in Rural Settings: A Best- Practice Model FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 162AB (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Julie Wolter, U of Montana; Ginger Collins, U of Montana; Kathleen Whitmire, NiNi Speech The presentation purpose is to describe a distance graduate training program model developed to address the critical SLP shortage in rural areas. Additionally, this presentation describes a small feasibility study of training and usage of a telecommunications platform developed for SLP telepractice speech and language therapy. Challenges and strengths will be discussed and ideas for applied integration will be provided.
