190 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 1871 International Education & Collaboration for Speech- Language Pathology Services in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Proposal SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 156C (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Sara Halada, HSHS St. John’s Hosp This presentation explores the urgent global need to strengthen speech pathology services for people with dysphagia, particularly in sub- Saharan Africa. There are currently two certified SLPs working in Tanzania, leaving millions of patients without access to critical dysphagia services. This presentation offers one SLP’s proposed multi-component, interdisciplinary solution being piloted at a large public hospital in Moshi, Tanzania. 1872 Online Education for Communication Sciences & Disorders (CSD) Programs: Models for Success! SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 105 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kathy Wheat, U of St. Augustine for Health Sciences; Meghan Savage, U of St. Augustine for Health Sciences Online learning for CSD programs is slowly emerging. Limited literature exists for CSD, while more is found in nursing, PT and OT programs. Best practices and outcomes for online CSD models are sought for high quality educational experiences for students. This session seeks to dispel myths associated with online programming and demonstrate examples of quality CSD online teaching and learning. 1873 PhD FAQs: Answers from Current Doctoral Students SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 107C (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Tina Melamed, U of Texas at Dallas; Katherine Winters, U of Texas at Austin; Javier Jasso, U of Texas at Austin Three current doctoral students and certified SLPs will present their experiences and answer FAQs about applying to and enrolling in a doctoral program. Presenters will describe their academic and clinical experiences before and after beginning doctoral study. Interested individuals will have the opportunity to ask questions about research, teaching, and aspects of doctoral study from the perspective of current students. 1874 Repeated Retrieval: A Powerful Cognitive Science-Based Method that Improves Learning & is Revolutionizing Teaching SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 103 (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kathryn Bayles, Professor Emerita U of Arizona; Kimberly McCullough, Appalachian St U CSD educators will improve student learning and program outcomes through “Repeated Retrieval” (RR) techniques that are revolutionizing education. Knowledge retrieval was traditionally considered learning neutral but cognitive scientists proved the opposite to be true. Administrators, teachers and students will learn how to use RR in the classroom, clinic, individually, and programmatically to learn faster and better to improve program outcomes. AUDITORY/CENTRAL AUDITORY PROCESSING (GI) 1875 How to Clinically Diagnose & Treat Amblyaudia, a Type of APD SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 255 (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Deborah Moncrieff, U of Memphis Clinicians will be instructed to 1) interpret dichotic listening tests to diagnose amblyaudia, a common binaural integration type of auditory processing disorder (APD) and 2) to select patients for an auditory training protocol designed to ameliorate the large interaural asymmetry characteristic of amblyaudia. They will also be instructed in methods to demonstrate significant improvements in auditory processing skills following intervention. 1876 Management of Central Auditory Processing Disorders SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 108 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Annette Hurley, Louisiana St U This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Auditory/Central Auditory Processing. In recent years, there has been an increased demand for diagnosis and treatment of central auditory processing disorder. (CAPD). If an audiologist assesses and diagnoses (C) APD, then, providing treatment, and follow-up should also be an integral part. This course will review current, available auditory training options for the treatment of CAPD, including computer mediated programs, apps, and formal auditory training. AUGMENTATIVE AND ALTERNATIVE COMMUNICATION (AAC) (SLP) 1877 AAC Intervention Coaching Fundamentals: Global & Multicultural Intersections SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 162AB (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Samuel Sennott, Portland St U; Larissa Viegas, U Federal da Bahia; Brooke Shea, Portland St U; Jessi Gallagher, Portland St U; Izela Michel, Portland St U; Regina Yu Shon Chun, Dept de Desenvolvimento Humano E Reabilitac, A~O, Unicamp; Ana Luíza Wuo Maia Ramos, Dept de Desenvolvimento Humano E Reabilitac, A~O, Unicamp Are you an SLP who wants to learn more about AAC intervention? Do you want to know more about AAC fundamentals across multiple language and cultural contexts? This session focuses on sharing about AAC intervention work with children with complex communication needs in Brazil and in the US. Key free and low cost assessment and intervention resources will be demonstrated. 1878 Integrating AAC/Core Vocabulary During Writing Instruction for Students With Complex Communication Needs SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 204AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Janet Sturm, Central Michigan U; Maureen Staskowski, Macomb Intermediate Sch Dist Learn how SLPs and classroom teams are using AAC, including core vocabulary, during writing instruction for students with significant disabilities. Using these models together, students are demonstrating striking improvements in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Success stories for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders and moderate and severe cognitive disabilities will be highlighted. Classroom implementation examples and strategies will be shared.
