2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 181 ORAL SEMINARS • SATURDAY 1799 Teaching Writing & Communication for Students With Complex Learning Needs SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 260 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Janet Sturm, Central Michigan U Join the revolution in providing instructional contexts that optimize foundational writing and communication skills for students with complex learning needs such as autism spectrum disorders and moderate and severe cognitive disabilities. Participants will learn authentic communication and writing goals and instructional strategies that align with the College and Career Readiness Standards and alternate assessments. Illustrated with classroom and case examples. SPEECH SOUND DISORDERS IN NORMAL-HEARING CHILDREN (SLP) 1801 Everything Old is New Again: Treating Speech Sound Disorders SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 256 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Sherry Sancibrian, Texas Tech U Health Sciences Ctr The diversity of speech sound disorders presents a considerable challenge when selecting intervention approaches that are efficient, effective, and evidence-based. Are traditional motor-based treatments as outdated as leisure suits, lava lamps, and the bell-bottom jeans? Learn how to combine current thinking about motor learning with “tried and true” techniques to correct sound production errors. SWALLOWING/FEEDING AND ASSOCIATED DISORDERS (SLP) 1802 Current SLP Practices in the Use of FEES for Infants Across Health Care Settings SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 210C (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Susan Langmore, Boston U; Maureen Lefton-Greif, Johns Hopkins; Kara Fletcher Larson, Boston Children’s Hosp; Jenny Reynolds, Baylor U Med Ctr; Erika Armstrong, Texas Woman’s U FEES is increasing in use for the assessment of bottle and breastfeeding in infants suspected of dysphagia. Current FEES practices for infant populations across three medical institutions and results of a national survey of SLPs performing infant FEES will be discussed. Implications for guidelines, standardization and research will be examined. 1803 Incorporating Esophageal Dysphagia Into SLP Practice: Evolutionary or Revolutionary? SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 204AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Julie Huffman, UNC Rex Hosp Outpatient Rehab; Joy Gaziano, Joy McCann Culverhouse Ctr for Swallowing Disorders, U of South Florida This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 13: Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia). Swallowing is a multi-phase phenomenon; disorders are traditionally dichotomized into oropharyngeal and esophageal phases. Speech pathologists have transferable skills that can aid in multidisciplinary assessment of esophageal dysphagia. This session reviews pertinent multi-phase literature, highlights important esophageal concepts, demonstrates practical examples of multi-phase swallow assessment/ management, and discusses challenges/ strategies for more widespread implementation of this emerging area of practice. 1804 Maximizing Voice & Swallowing Outcomes Following Organ Preservation Surgery for Laryngeal Cancer SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 211 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Holly Hess, UVA Med Ctr; David Shonka, U of Virginia Laryngeal organ preservation surgery is increasingly utilized for the treatment of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCCA). This session will describe the different types of laryngeal sparing surgeries, review current data on functional outcomes, and discuss the techniques to evaluate and optimize speech and swallow function following laryngeal sparing surgery. 1805 Revolutionize the GOLD- STANDARD! How About a New Platinum-Standard of Personalized Medicine for Instrumental Dysphagia Evaluations? SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 206AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Karen Sheffler, SwallowStudy.com; Theresa Richard, Mobile Dysphagia Diagnostics Dysphagia is complex! Because there are so many underlying reasons for someone to have dysphagia, we owe it to our patients to personalize their diagnostic process. How can there be one “gold-standard” to give us the answers? This course will be presented by two Board Certified Specialists in Swallowing, who are advocating for a new “platinum-standard” approach to dysphagia evaluations. 1806 To be, or not to be, NPO? SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / CC, 205ABC (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Molly Knigge, U of Wisconsin Voice & Swallow Clinic; Jamie Mayer, U of Wisconsin Voice & Swallow Clinic It is not uncommon for patients to be ordered NPO when unable to safely swallow. There may be circumstances and specific patient populations where the risks of prolonged NPO status are higher than the risks of aspiration or resuming an oral diet. This session will explore these risks and considerations for liberalizing swallow rehabilitation to include targeted oral feeding. TELEPRACTICE AND TECHNOLOGY (GI) 1807 Enhancing the Clinical Fellowship Experience Through Telesupervision SA 10:30AM-11:30AM / Westin, Commonwealth C Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Michelle Jabczynski, Infinity Rehab; Angela Quesnell, Infinity Rehab; Carolyn Staples, Infinity Rehab Telesupervision enhances the CF experience and improves the delivery of SLP services in the post-acute environment. An overview of the current regulatory and legislative climate impacting telesupervision is discussed. The methodology for creating a successful “hybrid-model” of mentoring will be illustrated, including results of efforts made to enhance the experience, and the impact on resources affecting rural clinical service delivery.
