234 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 DAY/TIME/ LOCATION/ ROOM SESSION/ AREA/ CONTENT/ LEVEL/TYPE TITLE/ AUTHOR(S) ABSTRACT FR 11:00AM-11:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech H 4583 GI CLD Intermediate Research Development of a Dialect-Neutral Nonword Repetition Task for African American Preschool Children Denise Finneran, OUHSC; Sixia Chen, OUHSC We test the feasibility of a dialect-neutral NWR task designed by the PI called the Nonword Repetition Task-Language Variation (NWR-LV). The stimuli in the task were designed to avoid speech sound patterns of African American English that differ from Mainstream. We examine performance on this task along with related language measures for preschool-age African American children living in poorer communities. FR 2:30PM-3:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech H 4584 GI CLD Intermediate Research Language Input Intervention With Synchronous Visual Feedback: Impact on Word Counts of Spanish- English Speaking Caregivers Mary Wofford, Florida St U; Carla Wood, Florida St U The purpose of this study is to test the effect of a novel real-time visual feedback system on caregiver language delivered to young children coming from dual language, low-income backgrounds. In a multiple-baseline design, the impact of the Starling device and smartphone application on caregiver language will be observed over two weeks. Intervention results and social validity will be discussed. FR 3:00PM-3:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech H 4585 GI CLD Intermediate Research Age-Related Changes in Speech Recognition Performance in Spanish-English Bilinguals Jordan Orozco, U of Texas at El Paso; Elisa Barraza, U of Texas at El Paso; Jamie Desjardins, U of Texas at El Paso Younger Spanish/English (S/E) bilinguals have been shown to have poorer speech understanding performance in background noise than their monolingual counterparts. Little is known regarding the effect of age on S/E bilinguals’ speech recognition performance in their first and second languages. The purpose of this study was to determine how speech recognition performance changes with age in bilinguals. FR 8:00AM-8:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4586 SLP FLU Intermediate Research Delayed Auditory Feedback & Working Memory: Does Variation in Working Memory Predict DAF Susceptibility? Anna Tendera, U of Alberta; Hannah Sysak, U of Alberta; Lili Sahakyan, U of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign; Thomas Kwapil, U of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign; Torrey Loucks, U of Alberta This goal of this project is to understand why individuals vary in susceptibility to Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF). We hypothesize susceptibility to DAF disfluencies is related to executive function; in particular, working memory that is used for storing and manipulating information. We will test whether variation in verbal working memory or spatial working memory can predict DAF susceptibility. FR 8:30AM-9:00AM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4587 SLP FLU Intermediate Research Speech & Nonspeech Sensorimotor Learning in Stuttering: An Integrated View of Developmental & Adult Data Kwang Seob Kim, U of Washington; Ludo Max, U of Washington We integrate data from four experiments investigating speech auditory- motor learning and upper limb visuo-motor learning in children and adults who stutter. Speech sensorimotor learning was investigated by perturbing auditory feedback during word production. Limb sensorimotor learning was investigated by perturbing visual feedback during reaching movements. Findings suggest that group differences between stuttering and nonstuttering individuals are age-, task-, and perturbation-dependent. FR 9:00AM-9:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4588 SLP FLU Intermediate Research Anticipatory Completion in Conversations Between People Who Stutter & People Who Do Not Stutter Sergey Kondrashov, U of Louisiana at Lafayette; John Tetnowski, U of Louisiana at Lafayette Our findings show trends indicating the impact of anticipatory completions on self-perceptions of stuttering and speech associated attitudes as well as the correlation of stuttering severity to the frequency of anticipatory completions in conversations between PWS and PWNS. The study describes specific stuttering moments which trigger anticipatory completions, feelings, anticipations, expectations, and behaviors of PWS during anticipatory completions. FR 9:30AM-10:00AM Westin, Galleria Tech D 4589 SLP FLU Intermediate Research The Effects of Social Stress on Behavioral & Acoustic Parameters in Adults who Stutter Kim Bauerly, SUNY Plattsburgh, CSD The effects of social stress on speech-motor control was assessed in 12 adults who stutter and 12 controls as they performed a modified-Trier Social Stress Test. Autonomic measures included skin conductance, heart rate and respiratory sinus arrhythmia. Speech-motor control measures included speaking rate and FFF2. Results will be discussed with a focus on emotional-motor processing differences in the stuttering population. FR 5:00PM-5:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4590 SLP FLU Advanced Research An Evaluation of an Integrated Fluency & Resilience Program for Early-Onset Stuttering Disorders Kerianne Druker, Curtin U; Janet Beilby, Curtin U; Trevor Mazzucchelli, Curtin U Effortful control, an index of self-regulation, is predictive of stuttering severity in children and is thus a potential indicator of clinical prognosis. No previous studies have trained parents to improve self-regulation in their children as a component of stuttering therapy. This study implemented a training program for parents to promote resiliency skills in their children, in conjunction with stuttering therapy. FR 5:30PM-6:00PM Westin, Galleria Tech F 4591 SLP FLU Intermediate Research Familial Aggregation of Stuttering Heritability Shelly Jo Kraft, Wayne St U; Emily Lowther, Wayne St U; Janet Beilby, Curtin U 201 Western Australian families enriched for the phenotype of developmental stuttering were used to investigate familial aggregation patterns of inheritance. Preliminary analysis found 2:1 gender distributions for affected status. No significant differences were identified across parent- status models (Father-Only, Mother-only, Both, Neither), father-only models were represented 2.4x more frequently than mother-only. First- and second- degree relatives by gender and parent-models are discussed. FR 1:00PM-1:30PM Westin, Galleria Tech H 4592 GI GLOB Intermediate Research Personal Commitment Statements in Evaluating Continuing Education: Evolutionary Practice Juan Bornman, U of Pretoria; Brenda Loxton Louw, East Tennessee St U The use of a Commitment- to- Change (CTC) statement to evaluate Continuing Education was investigated through a case study design. A CE event on communication disorders within the ICF-CY framework was evaluated by a Personal Commitment form and a follow-up survey. Results of a thematic analysis of statements and follow-up survey illustrate the important potential of this evolutionary approach.
