2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 163 ORAL SEMINARS • FRIDAY GLOBAL ISSUES AND PRACTICES (GI) 1602 Building an IPP Model for the Assessment & Treatment of Chinese Children With Language Disorders FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, Ballroom West Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Xueman Liu, Bethel Hearing & Speaking Training Ctr; Wendy Lee, Bethel Hearing & Speaking Training Ctr; Siyang Sun, Bethel Hearing & Speaking Training Ctr; Yiwen Zhang, Shanghai Children’s Med Ctr; Yan Hao, Tongji Hosp, Tongji Med Coll, Huazhong U of Science & Technology; Mark Simms, Children’s Hosp of Wisconsin; Joyce Pickering, Shelton Sch Using interprofessional practice (IPP) models in assessing and treating children with communication disorders is important for best patient care and outcomes. This presentation explores the efforts that are being made to lay the foundation for IPP among medical, education, and related professions in the developing pediatric SLP profession in China. HEARING AND TINNITUS ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (AUD) 1603 Cytomegalovirus Induced Hearing Loss: Diagnosis, Treatment, & Outcomes of Cochlear Implants FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 107C (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Eun Kyung Jeon, U of Utah; Albert Park, U of Utah This presentation provides in-depth information on cytomegalovirus (CMV) and its relationship with pediatric hearing loss. We discuss current controversies in the screening and medical treatment of CMV. We also explore outcomes of the cochlear implant (CI) and factors affecting the outcomes in children with CMV-related deafness. Finally, we will discuss how to counsel parents of children with CMV. 1604 The Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR): In-and-Out of the Operating Room FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 108 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Gregory Mannarelli, Michigan Medicine This session is developed by, and presenters invited by the American Board of Intraoperative Monitoring. The Auditory Brainstem Response has been a mainstay of auditory electrophysiology for audiologists both in the clinic and as a component of neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (NIOM). We will review fundamentals of how our equipment works and apply that information to optimize our responses, even in the toughest environments. The presentation will review practical tips optimize our ABR responses. HEARING, LANGUAGE, AND SPEECH IN THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING: BIRTH TO SCHOOL TRANSITION (GI) 1605 Application of Learning Theory to Language Habilitation FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 156AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Elena Plante, U of Arizona This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Hearing, Language, and Speech in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing: Birth to School Transition. Research on learning has discovered that learners across the age span are capable of acquiring aspects of novel languages within minutes of exposure to those language forms. This basic research provides behavioral and neuroimaging support for the advantages of implicit learning approaches to language instruction, with examples from studies of children with language disorders and cochlear implants. 1606 Unpacking Differential Diagnoses in Children With Hearing Loss FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 151AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Elizabeth Adams Costa, The River Sch; Colleen Caverly , The River Sch; Nancy Mellon, The River Sch; Meredith Ouellette, The River Sch Published research indicates that outcomes in children with hearing loss are generally lower than their hearing counterparts. Given the cascading effects auditory deprivation and language delays may cause in children, providing differential diagnoses can present a challenge. This talk will identify commonly occurring comorbid presentations in children with hearing loss, and describe the process of making differential diagnoses. HEARING, TINNITUS, AND VESTIBULAR SCIENCE (AUD) 1607 Tinnitus & the Brain: Using Imaging to Better Understand Reaction to Tinnitus FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 109AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Fatima Husain, U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign This session is developed, and speakers invited by, Hearing, Tinnitus, and Vestibular Science. Patients with tinnitus vary in their psychological reaction to the chronic sound. Using latest brain imaging techniques we are better able to understand the three overarching dimensions, namely, attention, emotion, and audition, along which individual patients vary. Successful tinnitus management options need to address the psychological reaction at an individual level and possibly be tailored to their unique needs. INNOVATIONS, DEBATES, AND HOT TOPICS IN THE DISCIPLINE (GI) 1608 Text Pattern Analysis of Large Secondary Data From Media in Speech & Hearing Sciences FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 256 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Vinaya Manchaiah, Lamar U; Monica Bellon-Harn, Lamar U; Michael Azios, Lamar U; Yueqing Li , Lamar U; Jing Zhang , Lamar U; Farzan Irani, Texas St U; Pierre Ratinaud, U of Toulouse People with health conditions obtain information about the health condition and its management through various sources and that can influence their attitudes towards managing the condition. This presentation provides an overview of text pattern analysis of large data from secondary sources (e.g., Newspaper media, Twitter, Facebook, Amazon) on various aspects related to speech and hearing sciences. 1609 TOTs-A Hot Topic! FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 254B (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Robyn Merkel-Walsh, TalkTools; Lori Overland, TalkTools Presentation explores: 1) What is TOTs 2) Why is TOTs a hot topic 3) surgical controversies and 4) therapeutic controversies.
