220 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 DAY/TIME/ LOCATION/ ROOM SESSION/ AREA/ CONTENT/ LEVEL/TYPE TITLE/ AUTHOR(S) ABSTRACT FR 9:30AM-10:00AM Westin, Carlton 4082 SLP SWAL Intermediate Prof Educ Learning the Larynx: Tools for Identifying Inflammation During FEES Kristin Sears-Kopp, Carolina Speech Pathology; Vanessa Peregrim, Carolina Speech Pathology; Selena Reece, Carolina Speech Pathology SLPS are viewing the larynx during fiberoptic endoscopic evaluations of swallowing (FEES). There is a need for training to support the identification of inflammation in the larynx by SLPS. The reflux finding score(RFS) is a reliable measure of assessing inflammation in the larynx. This session will develop SLPS skill for assessing inflammation in the larynx on the RFS. FR 1:00PM-1:30PM Westin, Carlton 4083 SLP SWAL Intermediate Prof Educ Integrated Feeding Therapy Adds Value to NICU Follow-Up Programs Pamela Dodrill, Brigham & Women's Hosp NICU; Katherine Gibson, Brigham & Women's Hosp NICU; Emma Riley, Jackson St U; Carmina Erdei, Brigham & Women's Hosp NICU; Jennifer Benjamin, Brigham & Women's Hosp NICU Many NICU graduates continue to display feeding, growth, and developmental concerns post-discharge. Most NICU follow-up programs do not have feeding therapy as an integrated part of their multi-disciplinary team. We have found that even many infants considered at low-risk of later feeding difficulties end up presenting with significant issues that benefit from feeding therapy input. FR 4:15PM-4:45PM Westin, Carlton 4084 SLP SWAL Introductory Research Emerging Evidence Surrounding the Interplay of Sucking, Feeding & Vocal Development at Three Months Emily Zimmerman, Northeastern U; Kelsey Thompson, Northeastern U The link between feeding and vocal development remains poorly understood. The goals of the proposed research are to determine the association between sucking, oral feeding, and infant vocal development over the first year of life (3/12 months), and to determine how these behaviors differ between full-term and preterm infants. FR 5:30PM-6:00PM Westin, Carlton 4085 SLP SWAL Intermediate Prof Educ Pediatric Tracheostomy Panel from Feeding, Swallowing & More: Ask the Experts Kristin King, Passy Muir, Inc; Suzanne Abraham, Albert Einstein Coll of Medicine (Ret); Laura Brooks, CHOA; Jessica Shaw, St Mary's Hosp for Children This session will allow SLPs to interact with experts working with pediatric patients with tracheostomy. The experts will cover from infants to older children, have specialized knowledge in pulmonary considerations, feeding and swallowing, and speaking valve use. This session will provide current research and treatment strategies, case studies, and an extensive question/ answer opportunity, so SLPs can “ask the experts.” FR 5:30PM-6:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech B 4086 GI TBI Introductory Prof Educ Effective Cognitive Rehabilitation Management for Two Frontal Lobe Syndrome Subtypes: Frontal Disinhibition & Frontal Abulia Tiffany Hung, Northwestern U; Belma Hadziselimovic, Northwestern U There is much discussion on the benefits between bottom-up and top- down processes in cognitive rehabilitation. This case study examines two patients with TBI who present with opposing subtypes of frontal lobe syndrome: frontal abulia and frontal disinhibition. Their profiles provide a cross comparison of how the syndrome manifests differently and requires different clinical management approaches to treat the dysexecutive symptoms. FR 2:30PM-3:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech G 4087 SLP VAC Introductory Prof Educ Semi-Occluded Vocal Tract (SOVT): Pathway to Voice Therapy for Children With Vocal Nodules Danielle Devore, Texas Children's Hosp; Julina Ongkasuwan, Texas Children's Hosp Voice disorder is an abstract concept for school age children. It is difficult SLPs to bring awareness to the “voice box,” if the child can’t see it or touch it. This presentation will describe how to use semi-occluded vocal tract (SOVT) technique with children with vocal nodules and explain connection SOVT to voice therapy.
