2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 227 TECHNICAL RESEARCH SESSIONS • THURSDAY DAY/TIME/ LOCATION/ ROOM SESSION/ AREA/ CONTENT/ LEVEL/TYPE TITLE/ AUTHOR(S) ABSTRACT TH 3:30PM-4:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4518 GI IDHT Introductory Research Three-Dimensional Visual Biofeedback: Before This, I Didn’t Really Know What My Tongue Was Doing! Rebecca Mental, Cleveland Hearing & Speech Ctr & Case Western Reserve U; Gregory Lee, Case Western Reserve U; Holle Carey, Vulintus; Jennell Vick, Case Western Reserve U & Cleveland Hearing & Speech Ctr Eighteen individuals with residual speech sound errors (age 8 - 22) participated in treatment with the innovative visual biofeedback software Opti-Speech. Opti-Speech provided a three-dimensional tongue avatar that moved in real time with the participant’s tongue. Treated sounds included “r”, “s”, “sh”, “ch”, and “l”. After 10 treatment sessions, clinically significant progress was seen for over half of the participants. TH 6:30PM-7:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech B 4519 GI IPC Introductory Research Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Trends in Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology Tara Davis, U of South Alabama; Dahye Choi, U of South Alabama; Susan Gordon-Hickey, U of South Alabama; Julie Estis, U of South Alabama ASHA’s Strategic Pathway to Excellence identifies interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) as a significant priority of the organization; however, little is known about collaborative practice trends between speech-language pathologists and audiologists. A survey was conducted and revealed significant attitudinal differences towards IPCP between the professions, highlighted barriers to collaboration, and identified IPCP trends that inform best practices in interprofessional education. TH 10:15AM-10:45AM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4520 SLP LLCA Intermediate Research A Back Door? Nonlinguistic Cognitive Processing Tasks to Identify Developmental Language Disorder in Diverse Populations Kerry Ebert, Rush U; Giang Pham, San Diego St U Identification of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) can be challenging, particularly in diverse populations. Nonlinguistic cognitive tasks could improve identification because they measure underlying processing weaknesses and reduce the influence of linguistic experience. We present diagnostic accuracy of several nonlinguistic cognitive tasks using data from five studies that included 566 children with and without DLD from a variety of language backgrounds. TH 10:45AM-11:15AM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4521 SLP LLCA Intermediate Research The Clinical Intersection of Sluggish Cognitive Tempo/Concentration Deficit Disorder & Language Disorder Sean Redmond, U of Utah; Kirsten Hannig, U of Utah In a community-based study sample we examined the overlap between symptoms of Sluggish Cognitive Tempo/Concentration Deficit Disorder (SCT/CDD) and symptoms associated with SLI and Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder (SPCD). Results indicated a clear separation of SCT/CDD from SLI but considerable overlap between SCT/CDD and SPCD. Implications for emerging clinical taxonomies and service provision are presented. TH 11:15AM-11:45AM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4522 SLP LLCA Advanced Research Withdrawn Abnormal Time-Frequency Oscillations in Individuals With Developmental Language Disorders During Perception in Noise & Quiet Nicholas Walker, U of Texas at Dallas; TImothy Brown, U of California, San Diego; Julia Evans, U of Texas at Dallas Heterogeneity of clinical populations makes identifying potential biomarkers challenging. A method of modeling individual differences in oscillatory dynamics revealed atypical oscillation in a child and in an adult with developmental language disorders. Atypical neural responses for both case studies are more pronounced during perception in noise revealing atypical alpha and beta oscillation networks. TH 11:45AM-12:15PM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4523 SLP LLCA Advanced Research An Interactive Paradigm to Study Lexical Stress Influences on Lexical Selection in Child Language Jill Potratz, U of Oregon; Melissa Redford, U of Oregon Work with young children suggests that phonological factors can influence word production. The present study investigates whether a trochaic bias might influence lexical selection in school-aged children’s spontaneous speech. Data collection is on-going, but preliminary results show little evidence for this type of bias when children and adults generate novel sentences. Semantic biases may be more important. TH 1:30PM-2:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4524 SLP LLCA Introductory Research Lexical Typicality Judgements by Learners With and Without Hearing Loss Kathryn Crowe, Rochester Inst of Technology; Marc Marschark, Rochester Inst of Technology Typicality ratings for six categories (120 words) were collected from 90 deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) and hearing college-aged learners at two time points. The construction of typicality in DHH learners appears to be different from that of hearing learners in terms of both the stability and strength of ratings. TH 2:00PM-2:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech E 4525 SLP LLCA Advanced Research Verbal Fluency Tasks in Primary School Students With Learning Disabilities (LDs) Reyhaneh Jafari, Wayne St U; Seyede Zohreh Mousavi, Iran U of Med Sciences; Saman Maroufizadeh, Dept of Epidemiology & Reproductive Health, Reproductive Epidemiology Research Ctr, Royan Inst for Reproductive Biomedicine, ACECR; Petra Hurks, Faculty of Psychology & Neuroscience, Maastricht U Verbal fluency (VF) is a widely used task in clinic. The aim of this study was to investigate VF performance of children with learning disability (LD). Thirty children with LD and matched controls were asked to complete semantic and phonemic subtests of VF. LDs showed poorer performance in both subtests, probably due to underlying language and executive function deficits. TH 10:15AM-10:45AM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4526 SLP LDA Intermediate Research Treatment Scheduling & Practice Conditions: A Randomized Controlled Trial of Script Training in Aphasia Leora Cherney, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab; Sarel van Vuuren, U of Colorado Boulder; Rachel Hitch, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab; Rosalind Kaye, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab; Rosalind Hurwitz, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab; Nattawut Ngampatipatpong, U of Colorado Boulder There is little information in the aphasia literature regarding the best way to practice or schedule treatment. Thirty-six persons with aphasia received script training that varied by practice (blocked versus random) and schedule (massed versus distributed). Important trends emerged, with blocked practice being advantageous for gains in accuracy whereas massed practice was advantageous for gains in rate. TH 10:45AM-11:15AM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4527 SLP LDA Intermediate Research Gesture Use by Persons With Aphasia During Noun Versus Verb Naming Tests Ellen Hickey, Dalhousie U; Janet Ingles, Dalhousie U This study examined gesture use by persons with aphasia (PWAs) during the Boston Naming Test and the Verb Naming Test. 137 participants were collected from the Aphasia Bank online database. Types of gestures used in noun versus verb naming, gesture use across aphasia types, and gesture use in those with high versus low verbal scores will be described.
