2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 151 ORAL SEMINARS • FRIDAY 1508  The Role of the SLP in Reducing Re-Hospitalization in the Post-Acute Care World FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / Westin, Burroughs Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Shannon Liem, Aegis Therapies; Donna Diedrich, Aegis Therapies; Jessica Pranke, Aegis Therapies As we navigate through healthcare changes, SLPs may find themselves with the need to evolve and integrate seamlessly into the Post- Acute Care continuum. The ability to assist with the prevention of rehospitalization of the patient population is a tangible value we, as SLPs, can bring to the healthcare continuum. LITERACY ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION (SLP) 1509  How Bilinguals & Children With Language Impairment Process Complex Academic Language During Listening & Reading FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 210C (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Carla Orellana, Utah St U; Stephanie Juth, Utah St U; Kathleen Mohr, Utah St U; Ronald Gillam, Utah St U Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) and eye-tracking were combined to explore the cognitive, behavioral, and neural responses of syntactic variation in spoken sentences and written passages in three groups: typically- developing (TD), bilingual children (EL), and children with developmental language disorders (DLD). MOTOR SPEECH DISORDERS ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (SLP) 1510  Challenging Diagnoses in Childhood Apraxia of Speech FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 257AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Becky Baas, Mayo Clinic; Taylor Brown, Mayo Clinic; Ruth Stoeckel, Mayo Clinic Children who present with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) characteristics in the context of velopharyngeal insufficiency, dysarthria, or as an older child with CAS each present with challenges to the clinician in accurately diagnosing and selecting appropriate treatment. This presentation will explore decision-making as illustrated through case studies. SPEECH AND LANGUAGE SCIENCE (SLP) 1511  Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy in Speech Production FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 107C (Lvl 1) Introductory; Research AUTHOR(S): Glen Tellis, Misericordia U; Cari Tellis, Misericordia U; Erin Roberts, U of Virginia; Danielle Spagnuolo, Misericordia U; D’manda Price, Misericordia U; Brianna Spilsbury, Misericordia U; Cara Imbalzano, Misericordia U Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a noninvasive neuroimaging tool that examines changes in hemoglobin concentration in the brain. This technology has the potential to be vital in the assessment and treatment of communication disorders. Studies using this technology and applications to clinical practice will be discussed in this presentation. SPEECH SOUND DISORDERS IN NORMAL-HEARING CHILDREN (SLP) 1512  Sound Judgment: Specific Therapy Techniques & Motor Learning Principles for Speech Sound Disorders FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 255 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Ann Kummer, Cincinnati Children’s This session will help participants apply enhanced sensory feedback and effective speech therapy techniques for correction of speech sound errors (including a lateral lisp, distortion of /r/, and compensatory errors used by children with oral structural anomalies). Motor learning and motor memory principles will be discussed as a framework for achieving carryover after correct speech sound acquisition has occurred. SWALLOWING/FEEDING AND ASSOCIATED DISORDERS (SLP) 1513  An Interprofessional Consultative Model to Dysphagia Management in the Schools FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 104ABC (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kristen West, Westmoreland Intermediate Unit; Erin Redle, U of Cincinnati There are many challenges to dysphagia management within schools. As educational initiatives continue to promote inclusion of students with complex medical needs, the need for implementation of procedures to ensure safety of students has increased. This presentation will provide information regarding the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit Safe Feeding Team’s supports to schools to ensure the safety of students with dysphagia. 1514  Dying for a Meal: Fatal & Non- Fatal Choking Incidents Across Populations FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 210B (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Bronwyn Hemsley, U of Technology Sydney; Joanne Steel, U of Technology Sydney; Lucy Bryant, U of Technology Sydney; Susan Balandin, Deakin U In this paper, the findings of three studies (a review of food choking in adults, a case study of an adult with dysphagia hospitalised with choking, and a focus group of hospital staff) are presented and discussed in relation to identifying choking risk, managing mealtime safety, and the role of speech language pathologists in airway protection in adults with dysphagia. 1515  Dysphagia Following Total Laryngectomy FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 204AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jodi Hernandez, U of Wisconsin, Voice & Swallow Clinic; Kathleen Huber, U of Wisconsin, Voice & Swallow Clinic In this session, physiologic changes affecting swallowing function post total laryngectomy will be identified as well as how these changes influence quality of life. Additionally, common etiologies of dysphagia and intervention methods will be outlined and direct application of this material will be demonstrated through clinical cases.
