174 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 1745 Four Years of Applying the Intensive Dysphagia Rehabilitation (IDR) Approach: A Personalized Neuroplasticity- Driven Swallowing Training SA 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 160ABC (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Georgia Malandraki, Purdue U; Jaime Bauer Malandraki, Purdue U; Akila Rajappa, Teachers Coll, Columbia U; Cagla Kantarcigil, Purdue U The Intensive Dysphagia Rehabilitation approach is a new neuroplasticity-driven intensive treatment approach designed to systematize clinical methods and maximize outcomes in patients with dysphagia. We will discuss the components of IDR and present data supporting its safety and preliminary effectiveness. We will then share our experiences applying IDR in three different settings and will discuss case studies with the audience. 1746 High-Resolution Manometry Brings a Quantitative Perspective to Swallowing in Patients With Parkinson Disease SA 8:00AM-10:00AM / Westin, Harbor Ballroom I Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Corinne Jones, U of Wisconsin - Madison; Michelle Ciucci, U of Wisconsin - Madison; Timothy McCulloch, U of Wisconsin - Madison Parkinson’s disease (PD) devastatingly impacts swallowing. However, our understanding of dysphagia in PD is limited. High-resolution manometry quantitatively measures swallowing pressures in the pharynx. We review existing literature and present new data on swallowing pressures in patients with PD to give insight on the future of dysphagia evaluation and management in patients with neurodegenerative diseases. 1747 Pediatric Aerodigestive Disorders: Assessment & Management SA 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 210A (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kara Fletcher Larson, Boston Children’s Hosp; Rachel Rosen, Boston Children’s Hosp Pediatric Aerodigestive Programs provide coordinated interdisciplinary care to patients with medical conditions affecting the airway, gastrointestinal tract, growth and swallowing. This session will provide an overview of a high volume pediatric Aerodigestive Center. Clinical management of aspiration, gastroesophageal reflux, chronic cough, oropharyngeal dysphagia and motility disorders will be discussed. Novel approaches to treating complex aerodigestive disorders will be presented. 1748 Pediatric Feeding Disorder: Consensus Definition & Conceptual Framework SA 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 252AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Pamela Dodrill, Brigham & Women’s Hosp NICU; Susanna Huh, Boston Children’s Hosp; Colleen Lukens, Children’s Hosp of Philadelphia; Mary Feuling, Children’s Hosp of Wisconsin Pediatric feeding disorders lack a universally accepted definition. Using the framework of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health, a new definition is proposed. The associated diagnostic criteria will enable practitioners to better characterize the needs of patient populations, and promote the use of common, precise, terminology necessary to advance clinicalpractice, research, and health- care policy. 1749 Shift of Focus From Survive to Thrive: Neuroprotective Advancements for Children With Congenital Heart Defects SA 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 209 (Lvl 2) Advanced; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Karli Negrin, Nemours Alfred I duPont Hosp for Children; Samantha Butler, Harvard Med Sch; Katherine Engstler, Boston’s Childrens Hosp; Jennifer Fogel, Advocate Children’s Hosp An interdisciplinary and multi-centered discussion to incite quality improvement and research ini-tiatives to improve neurodevelopment for children in the Intensive Care Unit. Areas to be dis-cussed include: brain development, neuroprotection, individualized developmental care, parental attachment, and protective feeding practices to improve neurodevelopmental outcomes in the frag-ile hospitalized infant and child. 1750 What Do I Say? Discussion Skills Training for Dysphagia Specialists in Palliative Care SA 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 154 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Marta Kazandjian, Silvercrest Ctr for Nursing & Rehab/New York-Presbyterian Queens; Kathleen Adinolfi, Silvercrest Ctr for Nursing & Rehab/New York-Presbyterian Queens SLPs working with seriously ill patients who have dysphagia have a vital role on the palliative care team. Discussion skill training for the SLP is a necessary component in providing comprehensive management to patients with dysphagia. Training programs designed to provide this education are available. Easy to use mnemonics designed to guide the conversation with the patient/family are described. TELEPRACTICE AND TECHNOLOGY (GI) 1751 Assistive Technology & Intervention CAN Play Nice! Bridging Literacy Gaps With Multisensory Intervention for Dyslexia SA 8:00AM-10:00AM / Westin, Lewis Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kelsey Hall, Assistive Technology for Educ; Diana Petschauer, Assistive Technology for Educ Assistive Technology (AT) bridges gaps for learners with dyslexia by supporting access to grade appropriate content. AT aids in reducing frustration and prevents learners from falling behind. If individuals do not have access to AT, their literacy development will suffer, negatively impacting higher order skills, such as comprehension, idea synthesis, and conversational discourse. AT and explicit intervention CAN play nice!
