FR 5:00PM-5:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4063 GI BPM Intermediate Research Do Patient-Reported Hearing Aid Outcomes Vary as a Function of Payer Status? Jennell Vick, Cleveland Hearing & Speech Ctr; Bridgid Whitford, Cleveland Hearing & Speech Ctr This investigation examined patient-reported hearing aid use and satisfaction data in 304 participants who received hearing aids at a community hearing clinic in 2017. Results were analyzed in the context of the payer mix that characterized the clinic, with 76% of participants receiving hearing aids at low- or no-cost and 24% of participants paying privately for their hearing aids. FR 1:00PM-1:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4064 AUD HT Intermediate Prof Educ Contemporary Procedures Used to Evaluate Adult Cochlear Implant Candidates Sandra Prentiss, U of Miami The purpose of this study was to learn about pre-operative testing patterns used to evaluate cochlear implant candidates across clinics. FR 1:30PM-2:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4065 AUD HT Intermediate Prof Educ Two Ears Are Better Than One: Benefits of Bilateral & Bimodal Hearing Meredith Holcomb, Med U of South Carlolina Hearing with two ears (two hearing aids, two cochlear implants, or hearing and a cochlear implant) has been shown to provide benefits in music appreciation, speech understanding, localization, and quality of life. This course will discuss current technology available, research supporting bilateral and bimodal benefit, and case studies for adults and children with hearing loss. FR 2:30PM-3:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4066 GI DHH Intermediate Prof Educ Importance of AUD-SLP Collaboration on Hearing Screenings With Students That Have Significant Cognitive Disabilities Nancy Quick, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Ctr for Literacy & Disability Studies; Karen Erickson, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Ctr for Literacy & Disability Studies Students with significant cognitive disabilities are at increased risk for hearing loss. Given the complex sensory, motor, health and cognitive needs associated with this population, an interprofessional practice model is proposed for audiological assessment and management of this population. This session will share the advantages and challenges associated with implementing school-based hearing screenings. FR 3:00PM-3:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4067 GI DHH Introductory Prof Educ It Takes a Team: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Improving Outcomes for Deaf/Hard of Hearing Children Sarah Stone, MA Dept. of Pub Health; Jennifer Fleming, Universal Newborn Hearing Screening Program Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) and family involvement is critical for improving outcomes for Deaf/Hard of Hearing children. National EHDI goals and performance are presented and a team approach to improving these measures is discussed. Collaboration leads to improvements in LTF (lost to follow-up). A visual family-centered tool to foster collaboration with and among professionals is presented. FR 11:00AM-11:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4068 GI IPC Introductory Prof Educ Cream & Sugar: Novel Songwriting & Music to Improve Spoken Language in Persons with Aphasia Heather Coles, Nazareth Coll; Allison Kadin, Nazareth Coll; Laurie Keough, Nazareth Coll; Natalie Tyce, Nazareth Coll Current evidence supports strong neural relationships between music and language. This presentation describes the benefits of pairing music therapy students with speech- language pathology students and faculty to facilitate improved verbal expression in individuals with aphasia. Specifically, engaging video clips will provide the context for using client centered vocabulary to write novel songs while targeting functional speech and language targets. FR 9:00AM-9:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4069 SLP LDA Intermediate Research Multi-Tasking & Age: Use of Dual Tasks in Clinical Practice Across the Adult Lifespan Jennine Harvey, Illinois St U; Megan Cuellar, Midwestern U; Jonathan Wilson, Midwestern U This presentation will introduce factors that influence multi-tasking and age, research investigation updates, and discuss considerations and applications of multi-tasking to assessment and intervention procedures. FR 9:30AM-10:00AM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4070 SLP LDA Intermediate Prof Educ Awake Craniotomy for Glioma: The Role of Speech Language Pathologists & Patient Outcomes Asako Kaneoka, The U of Tokyo Hosp Rehab Ctr; Akiko Ogino, The U of Tokyo Hosp Rehab Ctr; Tomoko Shichiri, The U of Tokyo Hosp Rehab Ctr; Yasuaki Karasawa, The U of Tokyo Hosp Rehab Ctr; Shunsaku Takayanagi, Dept of Neurosurgery, the U of Tokyo; Shota Tanaka, Dept of Neurosurgery, U of Tokyo; Naoto Kunii, Dept of Neurosurgery, U of Tokyo; Akitake Mukasa, Dept of Neurosurgery, U of Tokyo; Nobuhiko Haga, The U of Tokyo Hosp Rehab Ctr Awake craniotomy is performed to maximize the extent of tumor resection while minimizing postoperative neurologic deficits. Speech language pathologists may perform pre/postoperative language assessment and intraoperative language testing for patients undergoing awake craniotomy. Our study showed that the patients’ language function remained stable before and after awake craniotomy, which allowed the majority of patients to return to their work. FR 1:00PM-1:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4071 SLP LDA Intermediate Prof Educ School-to-work Transition of Young Adults With a Developmental Language Disorder : A Literature Review Pascale Dubois, U Laval; Marie-Catherine St-Pierre, U Laval; Frédéric Guay, U Laval It is well known that developmental language disorder (DLD) has pervasive effects during young adulthood. This session proposes a synthesis of the literature regarding the outcomes of young adults with a DLD. The author will present how the results obtained with different cohorts converge as well as the factors that can help to qualify the interpretation of these findings.
