2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 149 ORAL SEMINARS • FRIDAY HEARING, LANGUAGE, AND SPEECH IN THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING: BIRTH TO SCHOOL TRANSITION (GI) 1493  Learning to Listen Sounds: The Art & the Science FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 107B (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Ashley Garber, LSL Language Partners, LLC; Susan Chesney, Chesney Cntr Therapies Learning to Listen Sounds are a cornerstone of the Listening and Spoken Language approach for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. These onomatopoeic sounds are a developmentally appropriate way to begin auditory/language development for beginning listeners. This course teaches the science beyond the list, leaving interventionists with ideas for activities and the concepts to build their own. HEARING, TINNITUS, AND VESTIBULAR SCIENCE (AUD) 1494  Hidden Hearing Loss: Anatomical Correlates & Clinical Presentations FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 106 (Lvl 1) Introductory; Research AUTHOR(S): Mark Parker, Tufts U Sch of Medicine; Sofia Pevzner, Steward St. Elizabeths’s Med Ctr; Richard Hoben, Steward St. Elizabeths’s Med Ctr This presentation will review findings from both basic and clinical sciences concerning hidden hearing loss. The deficiencies of the standard audiogram in predicting underlining otopathologies and new clinical techniques for measuring these otopathologies the will be presented. Evolving theories concerning the functional roles of cochlear cell subtypes in speech in noise performance will be discussed. INNOVATIONS, DEBATES, AND HOT TOPICS IN THE DISCIPLINE (GI) 1495  An Innovative Objective Speech Analysis Tool for the Assessment & Management of Motor Speech Disorders FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 256 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Sandra Schneider, U of Notre Dame; Julie Stierwalt, Mayo Clinic; Christian Poellabauer, U of Notre Dame; Michael Soenen, SpeechLight, Inc.; Louis Daudet, SpeechLight, Inc. An interprofessional collaborative team consisting of SLPs, engineers, and software entrepreneurs has developed a tool that integrates the current perceptual method of assessment of dysarthria with faster, mobile, more accurate and objective acoustic measurements. In addition it can provide a more objective, metric-driven means for monitoring treatment effectiveness and disease progression. INTERPROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION (GI) 1496  ASHA’s Role in Fostering Interprofessional Education & Collaboration FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 212 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Loretta Nunez, ASHA; Lynn Williams, East Tennessee St U; Janet Koehnke, Montclair St U Baseline and progress data from 2016 and 2017 will be reported from academic programs, audiologists, and SLPs in various practice settings, as well as plans that have been implemented to date. Next steps to further transform IPE/IPP behavior from 2018-2020 will be discussed. Attendees’ perspective will be solicited to identify optimal ways that ASHA can advance IPE/IPP. 1497  Beyond the Balancing Act: SLP Role in the Management of Patients With Cerebellar Disorders FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 251 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Stacey Sullivan, Massachusetts General Hosp; Jeremy Schmahmann, Massachusetts General Hosp This session, presented in tandem by a neurologist and speech pathologist, provides a rich understanding of the complex workings of the cerebellum, the speech, swallowing and cognitive-linguistic disorders that accompany cerebellar disease, and will empower clinicians with tools and strategies to evaluate, treat, better understand, and advocate for the ataxic patient. 1498  Which Test Is Best? Standardized Cognitive Assessments For The Aging Adult- An Interprofessional Care Team Approach FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 210A (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Erin Knoepfel, Mansbach Health Tools; William Mansbach, BCAT There are many standardized screening tools and assessments available to the care team, but knowing which is best can be confusing. This presentation will provide valuable information regarding evidence based screening and comprehensive cognitive assessments used by the interprofessional care team to determine baseline status and rehabilitative and/or wellness services needed to optimize cognitive function in the aging adult. LANGUAGE AND LEARNING IN SCHOOL-AGE INDIVIDUALS (SLP) 1499  Cognitive Research in Children with SLI: From Laboratory to Clinical Practice FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 254A (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Klara Marton, CUNY Grad Ctr; Lia Pazuelo, CUNY Grad Ctr; Yasmine Ouchikh, CUNY Graduate Ctr - PhD Program in Speech-Langauge-Hearing Sciences; Thorfun Aramridth, CUNY Grad Ctr; Jessica Scheuer, CUNY Grad Ctr When considering the persistence of language disorders into adolescence, researchers have increasingly turned to cognitive explanations for the resistance to intervention. This presentation will discuss our current research of working memory and interference control abilities in children with specific language Impairment and address how this information can be utilized in clinical practice.
