2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 215 TECHNICAL CLINICAL SESSIONS • THURSDAY DAY/TIME/ LOCATION/ ROOM SESSION/ AREA/ CONTENT/ LEVEL/TYPE TITLE/ AUTHOR(S) ABSTRACT TH 3:00PM-3:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4038 SLP MSD Intermediate Prof Educ A Rare Case of Mixed Hyperkinetic-Ataxic Dysarthria in Patient with Multiple Sclerosis & Palato-Pharyngo- Laryngeal Myoclonus Emily Wang, Rush U Med Ctr; Rebecca Zerivitz, Rush U Med Ctr In patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), spasticity and lack of movement coordination are frequently observed in both speech and non-speech muscle system which lead to the diagnosis of mixed spastic-ataxic dysarthria. Here we present a rare case of MS where the dominant feature was the presence of palato-pharyngo-laryngeal myoclonus which, together of the movement incoordination, manifested as mixed hyperkinetic-ataxic dysarthria. TH 4:30PM-5:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4039 SLP MSD Intermediate Research Speech Intelligibility in Children With Cerebral Palsy: Why Measurement Matters Phoebe Natzke, Waisman Ctr; Ashley Sakash, Waisman Ctr; Katherine Hustad, U of Wisconsin - Madison This study explores methods for measuring speech intelligibility in pediatric populations, and examines changes in speech functioning over time in a cohort of 45 children with cerebral palsy, who were each observed at 6, 7, 8 years of age. This study investigates the sensitivity of 6 measures of speech intelligibility to both severity and change, and reports agreement between measures. TH 7:00PM-7:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4040 SLP MSD Intermediate Research Electroencephalography in Primary Progressive Aphasia & Apraxia of Speech Rene Utianski, Mayo Clinic; John Caviness, Mayo Clinic; Gregory Worrell, Mayo Clinic; Joseph Duffy, Mayo Clinic; Heather Clark, Mayo Clinic; Mary Machulda, Mayo Clinic; Jennifer Whitwell, Mayo Clinic; Keith Josephs, Mayo Clinic Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) and Primary Progressive Apraxia of Speech (PPAOS) are subtypes of fronto-temporal dementia. Past research has demonstrated that electroencephalography (EEG) is sensitive to dementia associated with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Lewy bodies. This preliminary study suggests EEG changes are seen in PPA and in PPAOS when it is accompanied by aphasia. TH 3:00PM-3:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech G 4041 SLP SLS Introductory Prof Educ Using Free Praat Features to Derive Clinically Meaningful Voice & Speech Outcomes Gabriel Cler, Boston U Speech and voice outcome measures are vital for tracking change over time in many areas of clinical practice: voice disorders, acquired speech disorders, and developmental speech disorders (e.g., speech sound errors). Attendees will be encouraged to follow along with the hands-on demonstration on measuring relevant features (fundamental frequency, formants, voice quality, intonation, phonemic features) using free software (Praat). TH 3:00PM-3:30PM Westin, Carlton 4042 SLP SWAL Introductory Prof Educ Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Adults: What the SLP Should Know Amy Baillies, U of Wisconsin Hosp & Clinics Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a newer diagnosis. It is not unusual for patients suffering from this condition to be referred to speech-language pathology first for an evaluation. It can go undiagnosed due to lack of awareness regarding this diagnosis. This introductory session will describe EoE and use case presentations to illustrate common symptoms along with the evaluation and treatment process. TH 3:30PM-4:00PM Westin, Carlton 4043 SLP SWAL Intermediate Research Oral Health Screening May Decrease Aspiration Pneumonia Risk for Adults With Dementia in Residential Care Lynette Goldberg, U of Tasmania; Juanita Westbury, U of Tasmania; Susan Langmore, Boston U; Leonard Crocombe, U of Tasmania; Katherine Kent, U of Tasmania; Cynthia Heiss, Texas Health Huguley Hosp Many adults with dementia are dependent for feeding, oral care, and at-risk for aspiration pneumonia. Speech pathologists can facilitate oral health screening when these adults move into care. In screening 142 residents, 78% warranted a dental referral; 57% were at risk for malnourishment; 13% were malnourished; 70% indicated difficulty with, or apprehension about, swallowing thin liquids safely. Implications are discussed. TH 5:00PM-5:30PM Westin, Carlton 4044 SLP SWAL Intermediate Prof Educ Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) in the NICU Population Jacqueline Davis, U of Arkansas for Med Sciences; Carol Camp, U of Arkansas for Med Sciences; Julie Charles, U of Arkansas for Med Sciences Feeding in the NICU is complex with a multifactorial clinical picture. Frequently, there is a disconnect between the clinical bedside evaluation and swallowing safety due to the high prevalence of silent aspiration. Now emerging into the NICU, FEES has shown to be an effective and reliable tool to identify penetration and aspiration at the bedside in the premature population. TH 6:30PM-7:00PM Westin, Carlton 4045 SLP SWAL Introductory Prof Educ Advancing Texture Development: Update on Lateralizing Textures From The Bite & Chew Study Nina Capone Singleton, Seton Hall U; Soriennys Brito- Nunez, Seton Hall U; Lauren Jacobson, Seton Hall U; Melody Bush, Seton Hall U; Rina Lobell, Seton Hall U; Caitlin Celendano, Seton Hall U; Mychell Maldonado, Seton Hall U; Stefani Buck, Seton Hall U This clinical session presents lingual lateralization results and examples from our on-going, cross-sectional study of infants/toddlers aged 6- to 31-months. Lingual Zone and Orientation are examined as a function of age and 6 levels of food texture. Discussion centers on the method, external validity, and clinical application of the results. TH 7:00PM-7:30PM Westin, Carlton 4046 SLP SWAL Introductory Prof Educ Reviewing the State of the Science in Pediatric Chewing Development & Treatment: Empowering Clinical Advances Erin Wilson, MGH IHP; Meg Simione, Massachusetts General Hosp & Harvard Med Sch This presentation will summarize the development of chewing and detail the results of a scoping review of treatment in pediatric chewing disorders. The presentation will conclude with a discussion on how to empower clinical advances in the field including a step-by-step approach to identifying and evaluating outcome measures to assess the effectiveness of treatment protocols and appraise clinical impact. TH 4:30PM-5:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4047 GI TBI Introductory Prof Educ Choosing Apps for Memory & Organizational Strategies Using Technological Pedagogy Content (TPACK) as a Framework Theresa Dawson, BrainLink Lab Clinicians may recommend a variety of apps as memory and organizational strategies for those with cognitive and memory impairments. With dozens of apps available how to best choose the one that meets a client’s needs? Technological Pedagogy and Content (TPACK) is an evidence based framework for making decisions about technology appropriate to the relationship between content and pedagogy.
