2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 187 ORAL SEMINARS • SATURDAY LANGUAGE IN INFANTS THROUGH PRESCHOOLERS (SLP) 1848 A Review of the Psychometric Integrity of Preschool Language Tests: Findings & Implications for SLPs SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / Westin, Grand Ballroom B Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Deirdre Muldoon, The Coll of Saint Rose; Nina Benway, The Coll of Saint Rose; Andrew Shanock, The Coll of Saint Rose; Vincent Alfonso, Gonzaga U The purpose of this study is to review and evaluate the psychometric integrity of preschool language tests, published between 2008 and 2018. A total of 30 tests were included in the review. The authors evaluated the internal consistency reliability, test-retest reliability, test floors, validity, and presence of item gradient violations of commonly used preschool language tests. 1849 Differential Diagnosis of Low Verbal Toddlers & Preschoolers SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / Westin, Grand Ballroom A Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Stephen Camarata, Vanderbilt U Sch of Medicine; Mary Camarata, Late Talkers Consulting; Lei Su, Vanderbilt U Sch of Medicine SLPs should complete a differential diagnosis in low verbal toddlers to determine whether the low verbal profile is specific language impairment, speech disorder, intellectual disability or ASD. Is important to note that establishing program eligibility (e.g., ASD) does not necessarily require differential diagnosis. This presentation will describe key markers for the typologies including low verbal skills as a symptom. LEADERSHIP, ETHICS, AND PROFESSIONAL ISSUES (GI) 1850 Impacting Patient Care With Ethical Considerations of Speech- Language Pathologists SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / Westin, Grand Ballroom CD Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kristin King, Passy Muir,Inc Ethics are constantly evolving as medical care changes which presents a challenge to Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP). However, the ethical standards in practice go beyond individualized, personal practice and incorporate the rights of patients and their accessibility to communication and participation in medical care. The efficiency and efficacy of various communication methods will be demonstrated through patient interviews and case studies. 1851 Student Loan Decision Tree: Finding the Optimal Repayment Strategy SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / Westin, Lewis Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jacob Parish, Schooner Financial Speech-Language-Hearing professionals are uniquely positioned to take advantage of multiple student loan repayment options. In this presentation, we’ll progressively move through what questions are important to ask and how the resulting answers will help lead to the optimal student loan repayment strategy. This will include discussions on forgiveness, refinancing, federal repayment plans, and mistakes to avoid. 1852 Treat Yourself: Self-Care for the Speech-Language Pathologist SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / Westin, Grand Ballroom E Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Lee Robison, Rusk Rehab/NYU Langone Health; Teresa Lynch, Rusk Rehab/NYU Langone Health; Karen Gendal, Rusk Rehab/ NYU Langone Health Speech-Language Pathologists experience work-related stress at work and at home. Self- care is important to reduce professional stress and burnout, and to ensure quality patient care. This course will explore 5 areas of self-care for the SLP. A 5-month staff wellness program in an outpatient rehabilitation setting will be reviewed. Overall effects on staff’s wellness will be presented. MOTOR SPEECH DISORDERS ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (SLP) 1853 Internationalizing Treatment Research in Motor Speech Disorders: A Small Scale Randomized Controlled Trial Across Borders SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 254B (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Gemma Moya Gale, U Oberta de Catalunya; Erika Levy, Teachers Coll, Columbia U This session presents an international, small scale randomized controlled trial that examined the effects of intensive speech treatment on the intelligibility and overall communicative function of Belgian- French-speaking children with dysarthria due to cerebral palsy. The seminar also discusses the importance of cross-linguistic research for better understanding language- universal and language-specific outcomes of speech treatment. SPEECH AND LANGUAGE SCIENCE (SLP) 1854 Clinical Tutorial: Using Psycholinguistic Research to Design Stimuli for Spoken-Word Processing Goals in School-Aged Children SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 159 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jonathan Rogers, U of Memphis; Linda Jarmulowicz, U of Memphis Spoken-word processing is influenced by word frequency, age of acquisition, neighborhood density, and phonotactic probability. This tutorial provides clinicians with a framework for how these variables affect processing difficulty across different tasks and modalities. SLPs will learn how to manipulate these variables to create stimuli sets that address four factors related to processing difficulty: familiarity, predictability, confusability, and competition. SPEECH SOUND DISORDERS IN NORMAL-HEARING CHILDREN (SLP) 1855 Dynamic Assessment for Clinicians: Test-Teach-Test, Graduated Prompt Approaches, & the Glaspey Dynamic Assessment of Phonology SA 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 255 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Amy Glaspey, U of Montana This session presents current research and clinical applications for two approaches to dynamic assessment for speech and language skills: test-teach-test, and graduated prompt. The test-teach-test approach will be illustrated with examples of mediated learning experiences. The Glaspey Dynamic Assessment of Phonology (GDAP) a new, nationally normed assessment of phonology, will be introduced as an example of the graduated prompt approach.
