196 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 1917  Swallowing Dysfunction in the NICU – Silent Aspiration is Common, but Interventions Can Help SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 206AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Pamela Dodrill, Brigham & Women’s Hosp NICU; Katherine Gibson, Brigham & Women’s Hosp NICU; Kayla Hernandez, Boston Children’s Hosp; Reza Rahbar, Boston Children’s Hosp We reviewed 3 years’ worth of MBS studies from a large Level III NICU. Features of the population (e.g. the proportion of children referred for MBS who are found to aspirate, the proportion of those who demonstrate silent aspiration), and effectiveness of common interventions trialed during MBS procedures (e.g. slower flowing bottle nipples, positional changes, thickening liquids) will be discussed. 1918  The Robot & the Swallow: Current Practices of TORS & Dysphagia Management SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 209 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Allison Holman, Massachusetts General Hosp; Rachael Kammer, Massachusetts General Hosp; Jeremy Richmon, Mass Eye & Ear; Tessa Goldsmith, Massachusetts General Hosp Trans-Oral Robotic Surgery (TORS) with de-escalated adjuvant therapy has emerged as a treatment option for oropharynx cancer. This presentation by a head/neck surgeon and speech-language pathologists will emphasize the SLP’s role, pre and post operatively. A review of TORS technique, patient selection, acute/chronic side effects will be presented, as well as data demonstrating physiologic swallow changes. 1919  Voluntary Upregulation of Dystussia Improves Cough Effectiveness in Persons With Neurodegenerative Disease SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 205ABC (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Alexandra Brandimore, U of South Florida; Stephanie Watts, U of South Florida Patients with various neurological conditions often develop dystussia (cough dysfunction); this may prevent them from protecting their airway. We have shown that people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) can up-regulate cough with cueing. Despite substantial research investigating cough function, there remains few therapeutic paradigms for the treatment of cough. However, voluntary cough upregulation may provide a clinically relevant therapeutic target. TELEPRACTICE AND TECHNOLOGY (GI) 1920  Beyond Clinic Walls: Providing Speech-Language, Learning & Feeding Therapy via Telepractice SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / Westin, Harbor Ballroom II & III Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Stephanie Coe, Children’s Hosp Colorado Children’s Hospital Colorado has expanded speech and language services beyond the clinic walls by using telepractice to reach children and families in rural or underserved communities. This presentation will focus on program start up considerations, clinician training, technology needs and lessons learned. Videos of three distinct telepractice services will be shared. TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (GI) 1921  Using Stakeholder Experience to Improve Care for Children With Brain Injury SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / Westin, Grand Ballroom E Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Angela Ciccia, Case Western Reserve U; Jennifer Lundine, The Ohio St U This talk will share themes drawn from semi-structured interviews with survivors of pediatric traumatic brain injury (pTBI) and their caregivers as well as medical professionals involved in pTBI care. Results highlight the unique needs of each stakeholder group. Researchers and clinicians should consider these unique perspectives as we care for persons with pTBI and their families. VOICE AND ALARYNGEAL COMMUNICATION (SLP) 1922  Evaluation to Therapy: How Do I Get There? SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 160ABC (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Marina Gilman, Emory Voice Ctr; Nathaniel Sundholm, Emory Voice Ctr This session provides strategies for moving from the functional evaluation to therapy within the context of evidence based practice. Specific evaluative acoustic and aerodynamic tasks will be analyzed and discussed. These will be presented in the context of the SLP working in a facility with limited instrumental resources as well as one with access to computerized assessment tools. 1923  Prospective Study of Efficacy of Conversation Training Therapy SA 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 159 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Amanda Gillespie, U of Pittsburgh; Jacqueline Gartner-Schmidt, U of Pittsburgh The goal of the seminar is to provide an overview of a new voice therapy approach, Conversation Training Therapy (CTT). This seminar will update 2017 ASHA audiences on the initial results of a prospective study investigating the efficacy of CTT for patients with muscle tension dysphonia and vocal fold lesions. ACADEMIC AND CLINICAL EDUCATION (GI) 1924  Examining the Development & Impact of a Pilot Community Engaged Project SA 3:45PM-4:45PM / CC, 154 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kimberly Murza, U of Northern Colorado; Robyn Ziolkowski, U of Northern Colorado This session will describe the process of designing, implementing, and assessing a community engaged learning project for graduate SLP students. Graduate speech- language pathology students partnered with diverse families to support routines- based caregiver-child interactions around treasure chest resources. Student, family, and community partner outcomes will be shared. 1925  Give It to Me Straight: Why, How & What Should I Consider in Language Sampling SA 3:45PM-4:45PM / CC, 102AB (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Elizabeth Lanter, Radford U; Karen Davis, Radford U; Stephanie Vaughan, Radford U; Cody Huber, Radford U This presentation will use hands-on applicative techniques to help those who never really got it, get language sampling. Participants will be walked through case histories to identify concerns, consider the educational relevance of those concerns, determine a plan to capture linguistic behaviors with language sampling, and score samples using educationally relevant metrics.
