226 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 DAY/TIME/ LOCATION/ ROOM SESSION/ AREA/ CONTENT/ LEVEL/TYPE TITLE/ AUTHOR(S) ABSTRACT TH 6:30PM-7:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech H 4508 GI CLD Intermediate Research The Effects of Language & Linguistic Context on Category Organization in Older Bilingual Adults Monica Hough, Florida Int'l U; Giselle La Rosa, Florida Int'l U; Farrah Frazier, Florida Int'l U; Melissa Bouverie, Florida Int'l U; Janell Jordi, Florida Int'l U The study investigated how 20 Spanish-English bilingual adults over age 65 process categorical information in both English and Spanish. The task involved presenting examples of common and ad hoc categories with and without linguistic context vignettes. Participants provided category labels. Participants performed significantly better on common categories, regardless of context. Linguistic context only improved performance on ad hoc categories. TH 7:00PM-7:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech H 4509 GI CLD Introductory Research Naming Accuracy as a Predictor of Semantic Knowledge for Bilingual Children With Language Impairment Stephanie McMillen, U of Texas at Austin; Lisa Bedore, Temple U; Elizabeth Pena, U of California, Irvine; Zenzi Griffin, U of Texas at Austin Naming accuracy on lexical processing tasks may provide a method for identifying bilingual children with language impairment. Results from this study demonstrate that Spanish-English bilingual children’s naming accuracy in the second grade is predictive of semantic knowledge in the third grade. Difficulty with accurate lexical retrieval is discussed in terms of weaker semantic representations for children with language impairment. TH 11:45AM-12:15PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4510 SLP FLU Intermediate Research Working Towards a Valid Diagnosis of Cluttering John Tetnowski, U of Louisiana at Lafayette; Brittany Falcon Rutland, U of Louisiana at Lafayette; Monica Johnson, U of Louisiana at Lafayette; Bornwell Katebe, U of Louisiana at Lafayette; Sergey Kondrashov, U of Louisiana at Lafayette; Jennifer Tetnowski, U of Louisiana at Lafayette The purpose of the study was to collect information from various people who carry a diagnosis of cluttering and complete evaluations using several different models of cluttering. TH 1:30PM-2:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4511 AUD HT Intermediate Research Hearing Screen Failure Among Students With Reading Impairments: Rate & Relation to Specific Reading Deficits Sydney Bassard, U of South Carolina; Gabriella Reynolds, U of South Carolina; Krystal Werfel, U of South Carolina There is preliminary evidence that students with minimal hearing loss are at risk for academic failure and students with reading impairments have higher rates of minimal hearing loss. This session will present the initial dataset from a study exploring the prevalence rate of minimal hearing loss in children with reading impairment. Funding: University of South Carolina Office of the Provost. TH 2:00PM-2:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4512 AUD HT Intermediate Research Monitoring High Risk Infants: Adherence to & Predictors of Follow Up Maryrose McInerney, Montclair St U; Rachel Scheperle, Montclair St U; Wendy Zeitlin, Montclair St U; Kenneth Bodkin, Hackensack U Children's Hosp at Hackensack Meridian Med Ctr; Barbara Uhl, Hackensack U Children's Hosp at Hackensack Meridian Med Ctr This study retrospectively reviews hearing screening and follow-up results across a 5-year period from one of the major birthing hospitals in New Jersey. The trajectory of follow-up and factors associated with non- (or incomplete) compliance in babies identified as at risk for delayed/ progressive hearing loss are described. Implications for both practice and policy are discussed. TH 3:00PM-3:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4513 GI DHH Intermediate Research Reveiw of Audiological Evaluation Reports Compared to Best Clinical Practices Gabriel Bargen, Idaho St U; Kristina Blaiser, Idaho St U; Kalley Ellis, Idaho St U; Rachel Krauss, Idaho St U Through an interprofessional collaborative, ISU researchers are completing the Idaho Collaboration Assessment Project (ICAP). The project collects, analyses, and develops a transparent way of reporting outcomes of Idaho children who are Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing. Forty-one families enrolled in the ICAP and 33 audiological reports were collected and compared to best clinical practices, including behavioral audiometer parameters and test reliability. TH 3:30PM-4:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4514 GI DHH Intermediate Research Follow-Up Study on the Profiles of Students With Significant Cognitive Disability & Hearing Loss Nancy Quick, Ctr for Literacy & Disability Studies: UNC Chapel Hill; Karen Erickson, Ctr for Literacy & Disability Studies: UNC Chapel Hill In this session, the results of a study of the incidence and characteristics of students with significant cognitive disabilities and known hearing loss will shared. This study (n = 93,711) is a follow-up to an initial study examining the profiles of more than 38,000 students with significant cognitive disabilities that suggested that hearing loss was under-identified and under- served. TH 4:30PM-5:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4515 AUD HTVS Intermediate Research Neural Representation of Speech in Individuals With Different Noise Tolerances Meredith Klinker, Purdue U; Lata Krishnan, Purdue U; Ananthanarayan Krishnan, Purdue U Individuals with better noise tolerance are more likely to be successful hearing aid users. However, noise tolerance varies widely, and little is known regarding the sources of this variability. Here we examine neural encoding of a speech stimulus using frequency following responses (FFR) to determine if physiological differences account for the variability in noise tolerances and subsequent hearing aid performance. TH 5:00PM-5:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech C 4516 AUD HTVS Intermediate Research Spatial Hearing & Functional Auditory Skills in Children Who Have Unilateral Hearing Loss Nicole Corbin, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Emily Buss, UNC Sch of Medicine; Lori Leibold, Boys Town Nat'l Rsrch Hosp This study evaluates the effects of unilateral hearing loss (UHL) on children’s ability to benefit from target-masker spatial separation for speech-on-speech recognition, as well as their ability to localize sound sources in space. The association between these abilities and functional, everyday listening skills are also evaluated. Results have implications for the clinical assessment and management of pediatric UHL. TH 1:30PM-2:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4517 GI IDHT Intermediate Research Hidden Hearing Loss: Is Music Noise to the Ears? Rachel Ackerman, Purdue U; Lata Krishnan, Purdue U; Chandan Suresh, Purdue U; Ananthanarayan Krishnan, Purdue U Noise exposure has been shown to cause cochlear synaptopathy in animal models. Studies in humans with suspected “hidden hearing loss” have shown mixed results. We evaluated auditory brainstem responses (ABR) in normal-hearing college-age students with a history of noise exposure and compared them to ABRs from musicians. Preliminary findings suggest that music and noise exposure have different physiologic effects.
