216 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 DAY/TIME/ LOCATION/ ROOM SESSION/ AREA/ CONTENT/ LEVEL/TYPE TITLE/ AUTHOR(S) ABSTRACT TH 5:00PM-5:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4048 GI TBI Intermediate Research The Effect of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury on Bilingual Cognitive & Language Control Halah Alateeq, Arizona St U; Tamiko Azuma, Arizona St U Little is known about the cognitive-linguistic consequences of TBI in bilinguals. In this study, bilinguals completed non-linguistic switching and inhibition tasks as well as a language switching task. The aim of the study was to determine whether language control deficits can be predicted from cognitive measures, and whether language proficiency influences language control in the non-dominant language. TH 6:30PM-7:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4049 GI TBI Intermediate Research Withdrawn Feasibility of an Email-Based, Family-Centered Intervention to Promote Executive Functioning Development in Adolescent TBI Min Jung Kim, Iona Coll; Stephanie Fiorello, Iona Coll; Margaret McHugh, Iona Coll; Rachel Zukose, Iona Coll Email intervention has been proven to be effective in improving task completion and time adherence in adults with executive dysfunction post neurological impairments. A case study of two adolescents with TBI is proposed to investigate the benefit of an email-based, family-centered intervention on facilitating goal achievement through the repetitive practice of executive skills within the natural daily context. TH 7:00PM-7:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4050 GI TBI Intermediate Research Role of Auditory Electrophysiological Testing in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Patients Radhika Aravamudhan, Salus U Few studies have examined the role of auditory electrophysiologic testing and its correlation to behavioral tests while evaluating the auditory processing abilities of patients with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Current study aimed to evaluate the auditory system in its entirety from the periphery to the central processes and evaluate the neural correlates of auditory processing in patients with mTBI. TH 2:00PM-2:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech H 4051 SLP VAC Intermediate Research Effects of Voicing Activity Detection (VAD) on Cepstral & Spectral Measures of Voice Shaheen Awan, Bloomsburg U; Kierra LaForge, McCulloh Therapeutic Solutions This study investigated the correlation between cepstral and spectral measures of voice when including vs.excluding unvoiced segments of the speech signal using Voice Activity Detection [VAD]. Key measures obtained with and without VAD such as the CPP and L/H Ratio correlated with r’s > 0.90. The effect of this measure on cepstral/spectral estimates of dysphonia severity was marginal. TH 4:30PM-5:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4052 SLP VAC Intermediate Prof Educ A Holistic Approach to Managing Voice Disorders & Reactive Airway: The Buteyko Breathing Technique Sharon Frank, Speech & Voice Therapy Center, LLC; Liz Platt, Liz Bisch Platt, CCC-SLP, LLC; Joy Walsh, Emerson Hosp The Buteyko breathing technique shows tremendous promise in the voice clinic. We will describe features of this technique and present examples of its application in the evaluation and treatment of three voice disorders: exercise-induced paradoxical vocal fold motion, chronic cough, and hyperfunctional voice disorders.
