142 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 INNOVATIONS, DEBATES, AND HOT TOPICS IN THE DISCIPLINE (GI) 1438 Arts-Based Interventions Improving Social & Participation Outcomes for Individuals With Communication Disorders: A Systematic Review FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 256 (Lvl 2) Introductory; Research AUTHOR(S): Jamie Boster, Ohio U; John McCarthy, Ohio U; Alyson Spitzley, Ohio U; Christina Corso, Ohio U; Taylor Castle, Ohio U; Abby Jewell, Ohio U Art is a medium that may enhance participation for individuals with communication disorders. This systematic review investigated studies that implemented arts-based interventions to improve social and participation outcomes. A total of 350 studies were included for title and abstract review following an initial screening of relevance to the topic. Implications for practice and future research will be discussed. 1439 Neuromodulation: Harnessing Neuroplasticity With Brain Stimulation in Rehabilitation FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 254A (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Sharyl Samargia, U of Wisconsin - River Falls; Teresa Kimberley, Massachusetts General Hosp Non-invasive brain stimulation is an emerging tool that can help elucidate the pathology in motor speech disorders and has potential to be an adjunct to rehabilitation. We will give an overview of neuromodulation techniques and discuss concepts of excitability, inhibition, facilitation and neuroplasticity. Current findings of brain stimulation in rehabilitation research and future impact in clinical practice will be explored. INTERPROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION (GI) 1440 Implementation of Multi- Tiered Systems of Support: Outcomes of Cross-Discipline Coaching for Related Service Providers FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 253AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jessica Silva, Baltimore City Pub Schs; Beverly Decker-Brown, Baltimore City Pub Schs; Lauren Burrows, Baltimore City Pub Schs; Brad Petry, Baltimore City Pub Schs; Nadine Serbonich, Baltimore City Pub Schs Baltimore City Public Schools’ Prevention and Intervention for Early Learners (PIEL) initiative focuses on improving general education student outcomes through collaboration, consultation, and implementation of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) model. Related service providers were coached to implement MTSS strategies to improve general education student performance in targeted pre-literacy domains. 1441 It Takes a Village: Transitioning to a Reactive G-Tube Policy for Patients with Oropharynx Cancer FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 251 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Rachael Kammer, Massachusetts General Hosp; Franchesca Carducci, Massachusetts General Hosp; Carol Sullivan, Massachusetts General Hosp; Annie Chan, Massachusetts General Hosp Many oropharynx cancer patients get prophylactic G-tubes during chemoradiation given known toxicities, yet literature supports the advantages of continuing oral intake. Avoidance of G-tubes is possible if a supportive multi-disciplinary team is in place, including radiation oncologist, nurse, clinical dietitian, and SLP. Each professional will describe their role, and we will present a model for a reactive G-tube policy. 1442 Vestibular & Balance Disorders: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 106 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Devin McCaslin, Mayo Clinic; Steven Rauch, Mass Eye & Ear; Robert Burkard, U of Buffalo; Janet Callahan, MGH Inst This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Interprofessional Collaboration. Vestibular and balance disorders can be confounding even for experienced clinicians. Often, the successful triage and management of these patients relies on cross-specialty care. In this featured session, experienced clinician- scientists from varied clinical settings will discuss their role and present cases intended to illustrate the use of clinical pathways and modern evaluation techniques to facilitate efficacious patient management. LANGUAGE AND LEARNING IN SCHOOL-AGE INDIVIDUALS (SLP) 1443 Documenting Language Therapy Progress in School Settings FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 258ABC (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jon Miller, SALT Software LLC; Claudia Dunaway, San Diego Unified Sch Dist (Consultant); Joyelle DiVall Rayan, SALT Software LLC This session examines the challenge of documenting progress of students receiving language intervention in school settings. Different measurement approaches to capture vocabulary, complex syntax, and discourse- level language will be demonstrated. These approaches focus on language sample analysis, both hand-tallied and computerized, using SALT software. Measurement summaries for monthly, quarterly, and yearly session data will be discussed. Vigorous audience participation expected. 1444 Gifted with Learning Challenges: Twice Exceptionality & the Role of Speech-Language Pathologists FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 257AB (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Emily Vizza, The Quad Prep Sch; Carly Rossman, The Quad Prep School; Ilyssa Friedman, The Quad Prep Sch The term “twice exceptional” (2e) is being used to describe an increasing number of school-age students who demonstrate both areas of giftedness and learning differences or disabilities. Given the various profiles that fit within the definition of 2e learners, providing appropriate speech and language therapy for this population requires a variety of converging and individualistic factors that should be considered.
