Preliminary data on pre-and post- intervention test results using the Hunter Opinion and Personal Expectations Scale (HOPES) with four patients will be shared to discuss how the construct of hope can be applied in adult AR. HEARING, LANGUAGE, AND SPEECH IN THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING: BIRTH TO SCHOOL TRANSITION (GI) 1896  Developing Effective Education Plans for Students With Hearing Loss: Considerations for the School-Based SLP SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 107B (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jessica Hasbrouck, The New England Ctr for Hearing Rehab; Emily Potrzeba, The New England Ctr for Hearing Rehab Students with hearing loss present Speech- Language Pathologists with a unique set of considerations when addressing their spoken language needs in mainstream school settings. It is critical for professionals supporting these children to interpret their performance relative to their hearing loss. This session will highlight appropriate assessment considerations, goal development based on the student’s auditory access, and individualized classroom accommodations. HEARING, TINNITUS, AND VESTIBULAR SCIENCE (AUD) 1897  Spatial Hearing, Hearing Loss & Hearing Aids SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 106 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Virginia Best, Boston U This session is developed, and speakers invited by, Hearing, Tinnitus, and Vestibular Science and SIG 6: Hearing and Hearing Disorders: Research and Diagnostics. Spatial hearing is important for environmental awareness, for segregating sounds, and for understanding speech in noise. Many listeners with hearing loss experience difficulties in spatial listening tasks, and these difficulties may even be exacerbated by hearing aids. This lecture will review a variety of studies that have examined these issues and will consider some implications for binaural hearing-aid fitting. INNOVATIONS, DEBATES, AND HOT TOPICS IN THE DISCIPLINE (GI) 1898  Communication Strategies for Children and Adolescents who are Gender Diverse SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 253C (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Lindsey Pauline, Nationwide Children’s Hosp This presentation will provide the speech- language pathologist in all practice settings with strategies to support the communication development of youth with gender differences and/or disorders. It will focus on the history and modern definitions of gender, the roles of pediatric organizations in supporting those that are gender diverse, and the role of the SLP in health communication development. 1899  The What, Why, & How of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) Programs in Adult- Rehabilitation Settings SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 254B (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Martha Sherrill, U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) has become increasingly popular in adult/medically-based rehabilitation facilities. Multi-disciplinary researchers (e.g., physical medicine, rehabilitation sciences) have reported increased spontaneous communication, patient engagement, and social language use from adults receiving AAT in rehabilitation settings. This seminar will introduce SLPs to the background, evidence-based support, and practical application of an AAT program in adult rehabilitation settings. INTERPROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION (GI) 1900  An Evidence-Based Health Promotion Program to Improve the Quality of Life of Nursing Facility Residents SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 210B (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jean Neils-Strunjas, Western Kentucky U; K Crandall, Western Kentucky U In 2017, Western Kentucky University received a three-year $772,730.00 grant from the Kentucky Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the U.S. Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to provide online and onsite training to conduct the interprofessional program called Bingocize® .
