240 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 DAY/TIME/ LOCATION/ ROOM SESSION/ AREA/ CONTENT/ LEVEL/TYPE TITLE/ AUTHOR(S) ABSTRACT SA 8:00AM-8:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech A 4646 GI ACE Introductory Research Reciprocal Benefits of Engaging Undergraduates in a Systematic Review Rachael Look, U of Wisconsin - Eau Claire; Hannah Shoemaker, U of Wisconsin - Eau Claire; Jerry Hoepner, U of Wisconsin - Eau Claire; Margaret Blake, U of Houston Systematic reviews are a daunting task, as sifting through articles that meet specific inclusion criteria is challenging for individuals with PhDs. An ANCDS workgroup engaged undergraduate students in a full-scale review of prosody, language and pragmatics, cognition, neglect, and visuospatial processing. Beyond developing the database, we documented the search process, including gains in student accuracy in vetting articles. SA 8:30AM-9:00AM Westin, Galleria Tech A 4647 GI ACE Intermediate Prof Educ Engaging Undergraduate Students in Learning Neuroanatomy With iPad Pro & Apple Pencil Joshua Cutright, Ohio U The benefits of new technology in the classroom are almost limitless. From the use of iPad pros and Apple pencils to share and correlate information in a laboratory setting to 3-D dissection tutorials. The inclusion of new technology in laboratories is having an abundantly positive effect on students as well as faculty. SA 9:00AM-9:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech A 4648 GI ACE Introductory Prof Educ Revolutionizing Our Profession: The Basis for Future SLPs to Screen for Airway Function Disorders Nicole Archambault Besson, Minds In Motion Left unrecognized and unmitigated in children, airway function disorders (AFDs) can have devastating and lifelong consequences to health and childhood functions relevant to the SLP’s scope of practice. As a result, SLPs have a critical role in the interdisciplinary identification and management of AFDs. This session introduces the evidenced-based rational for the inclusion of AFDs in graduate school curriculum. SA 9:30AM-10:00AM Westin, Galleria Tech A 4649 GI ACE Introductory Research Language & Play Everyday: Enhancing Early Intervention Provider Knowledge & Use of Naturalistic Comm Interventions Kelsey Decker, U of Oregon; Heather Moore, U of Oregon Language and Play Everday (LAPE) is an inter-disciplinary community-based program, providing naturalistic communication intervention (NCI) to young children with disabilities through caregiver coaching. The current study utilized a quasi-experimental pre- post-test design to examine referring Early Interventionists’ use and knowledge of NCI-related tasksand satisfaction following participation in the LAPE program. SA 10:30AM-11:00AM Westin, Galleria Tech A 4650 GI ACE Intermediate Prof Educ The Thesis Project: What to Know Before You Start Autumn McIlraith, U of Houston; Catherine Timm, Florida St U; Lisa Fitton, Florida Ctr for Reading Research A thesis offers a valuable research experience for CSD students. This session will provide interested students with an introduction to thesis projects, including benefits of completing a thesis, tips for getting started, and keys to successful completion of the project. This information is intended to supplement guidance provided students’ programs and encourage them to complete their own projects effectively. SA 11:00AM-11:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech A 4651 GI ACE Intermediate Research Graduate Preparatory Training for Pediatric Medical Speech-Language Pathology: A National Survey Olivia Noceda, Portland St U; Shannon Theis, Oregon Health & Science U; Claudia Meyer, Portland St U; Emma Brooks, Portland St U; Cassie Quinn, Portland St U; Deanna Britton, Portland St U Research regarding the preparedness of students entering the pediatric medical speech language pathology (SLP) field is limited. A national survey of experienced SLPs working in pediatric medical settings was completed to determine essential qualities and expertise expected of SLP clinical fellows. Increased focus in medical curricula is needed to better prepare SLP graduates for clinical fellowships in pediatric medical settings. SA 8:00AM-8:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech B 4652 SLP AAC Intermediate Research Implementation of Classroom-Based Core Vocabulary Instruction for Beginning Communicators With Significant Disabilities: Year Three Results Lori Geist, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Karen Erickson, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Penelope Hatch, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Kathryn Dorney, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Sofia Benson-Goldberg, U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill This session will briefly review an approach to teaching symbolic communication to students with significant cognitive disabilities who are not yet using speech, sign language, or symbols to communicate. Descriptive data from 50 classrooms implementing the approach with nearly 200 students will be presented. SA 8:30AM-9:00AM Westin, Galleria Tech B 4653 SLP AAC Introductory Research International Clinical Guidelines for Management of Communication in Rett Syndrome Gillian Townend, Maastricht U Medical Ctr; Theresa Bartolotta, Monmouth U; Anna Urbanowicz, U of Queensland; Helena Wandin, Swedish National Ctr for Rett Syndrome & Related Disorders; Leopold Curfs, Maastricht U Medical Ctr Rett syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by significant communication impairment. The literature on communication in RTT is limited. Clinicians and caregivers have been challenged to access appropriate information to assist clinical decision making. This session will report on the development of rigorous international clinical guidelines for the assessment, intervention and long-term management of communication in individuals with Rett syndrome. SA 9:00AM-9:30AM Westin, Galleria Tech B 4654 SLP AAC Intermediate Research Early Vocabularies of Young Children With Down Syndrome: Describing the Sign to Word Transition Anne van Bysterveldt, U of Canterbury; Susan Foster-Cohen, The Champion Ctr; Viktoria Papp, U of Canterbury This longitudinal study examined signed and spoken vocabulary in 16 preschool children with Down syndrome. The NZCDI with Sign completed six monthly up to school entry, revealed variability in vocabulary size, proportions of words to signs, and timing of transition to spoken words. Analysis of children’s ‘action’ vocabulary suggested item modality is both semantically and pragmatically driven.
