166 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 LITERACY ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION (SLP) 1625  Literacy Instruction, AAC & the SLP: A Comprehensive, Collaborative Endeavor FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 210A (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Maureen Donnelly, Tobii Dynavox; Karen Erickson, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Students who use AAC struggle to achieve conventional literacy though it should be their highest educational priority. SLP’s are uniquely poised to change this, due to their skills, knowledge, and training. This session explores the language and literacy connection, provides a framework for effective literacy instruction for students who use AAC, and highlights one program as a model. 1626  Structured Literacy: What Is It? What Should SLPs Know About It? FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 257AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Karen Fallon, Towson U; Lauren Katz, Literacy, Language, and Learning Institute; Joanne Pierson, Literacy, Language, and Learning Institute In 2014, the term Structured Literacy was introduced by the International Dyslexia Association to characterize effective reading programs and approaches for reading disorders, including dyslexia. While this relatively new term has gained traction in the literacy world, it remains unfamiliar to many SLPs. This seminar will explain Structured Literacy intervention and discuss the role that SLPs can play. MOTOR SPEECH DISORDERS ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (SLP) 1627  Beyond the Patient: Understanding & Meeting the Needs of Families of People With Parkinson’s Disease FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 102AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Helen Mach, U of Washington; Carolyn Baylor, U of Washington; Rebecca Hunting Pompon, U of Delaware; Kathryn Yorkston, U of Washington This session explores the construct of third party disability in family members of people with communication disorders associated with Parkinson’s disease and current SLPs’ efforts to address family members’ needs. Results from a mixed methods study examining these topics as well as recommendations for clinical practice will be reported. SWALLOWING/FEEDING AND ASSOCIATED DISORDERS (SLP) 1628  Facilitation of Self- Regulation & Parent Empowerment in a Hunger-Based Tube-Weaning Program FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 161 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Heidi Moreland, Spectrum Pediatrics; Jamie Hinchey, Spectrum Pediatrics; Brianna Brown, Spectrum Pediatrics Research supports the importance of self- regulation in developing a healthy relationship with food. Case studies supported by evidenced based practices will demonstrate that introducing hunger to treatment settings can allow tube-dependent children to develop self- regulation. Participation in family mealtimes and family-based interventions are shown to be essential to successful treatment. 1629  Learning to Eat & Speak Again After Spinal Cord Injury in Early & Late Childhood FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 152 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Katy Peck, Children’s Hosp LA; Kayla Maldonado, Children’s Hosp LA SLPs play an essential role in acute rehabilitation of swallowing disorders, voice and respiration impairment, and communication following Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). Physical and psychological consequences of injuries that occur when the developmental pathway is disrupted early in childhood to be examined, specifically how changes in swallow function, cognitive development, sensory-motor function, and quality of life ensue after pediatric SCI. 1630  Management of Dysphagia in the ICU FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 104ABC (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Stevie Marvin, U of Wisconsin - Madison ICU patients are a heterogeneous population, however, they share common features that impact their risk for dysphagia and vulnerability for its consequences (i.e. malnutrition and pneumonia). This presentation will discuss the underlying mechanisms of dysphagia in the ICU, including mechanical ventilation, deconditioning, and delirium. Risk factors for dysphagia and how these factors influence evaluation and treatment planning will be discussed. 1631  When Unexpected/Bizarre Findings Occur on MBSS: Identifying & Understanding Subcutaneous Air FR 5:00PM-6:00PM / CC, 255 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Clement Grassi, MassTex Imaging; Joan Kelly Arsenault, MassTex Imaging The posterior pharyngeal wall lies anterior to the cervical vertebrae. On lateral view, there should be no air collection in the posterior pharyngeal wall or between the posterior pharyngeal wall and the cervical vertebrae (pre-vertebral space). This session will present an unusual case of air in the neck region, as evaluated by a radiologist during a routine MBSS.
