2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 79 SHORT COURSES • FRIDAY Short Courses • Friday ACADEMIC AND CLINICAL EDUCATION (GI) SC09  The Evolution of Statistical Methods in Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences FR 8:00AM-11:00AM / Westin, Webster Advanced; Research AUTHOR(S): Ryan McCreery, Boys Town Nat’l Rsrch Hosp; Jacob Oleson, U of Iowa; Maura Curran, U of Deleware This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Academic and Clinical Education. Traditional statistical methods may be inadequate or invalid for modern study designs involving longitudinal data, and studies with missing data, or analyzing non-normally distributed outcomes. This session will summarize alternative statistical approaches for research data in the speech, language and hearing sciences, including mixed models, propensity score matching, and longitudinal growth curve analyses. AUDITORY/CENTRAL AUDITORY PROCESSING (GI) SC10  Describing, Diagnosing, & Treating Auditory Processing Abilities & Disabilities in Adults FR 8:00AM-11:00AM / Westin, Otis Advanced; Research AUTHOR(S): Frederick Gallun, Nat’l Ctr for Rehabilitative Auditory Research, VA Portland Health Care System This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Auditory/Central Auditory Processing. The main types of auditory processing performed by the nervous system will be discussed. Diagnostic tools that exist to identify both anatomical dysfunction at specific levels of processing and functional dysfunction that often cannot be assigned to specific neural elements will be covered. Finally, there will be discussion of the types of rehabilitation approaches that exist or might be developed. INTERPROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION (GI) SC11  Neuro Interprofessional Education: Linking Pedagogy & Practice FR 8:00AM-11:00AM / Westin, Hancock Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Alex Johnson, MGH Inst; Carmen Vega-Barachowitz, MGH; Rebecca Inzana, MGH Inst; Lynne Brady Wagner, Spaulding Rehab Hosp; Marjorie Nicholas, MGH Inst; Regina Doherty, MGH Inst; Mary Hildebrand, MGH Inst; Peter Cahn, MGH Inst; Patricia Reidy, MGH Inst This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 2: Neurogenic Communication Disorders. As Communication Sciences and Disorders programs are increasingly involved in interprofessional education, there is a need for examples of collaborative educational approaches for implementation. In this course, an interprofessional team of educators and practitioners will describe their experience in designing effective programming across disciplines. Five successful learning activities will be shared as examples. SWALLOWING/FEEDING AND ASSOCIATED DISORDERS (SLP) SC12  The Evolving Science & Revolutionary Practice of Dysphagia Care FR 8:00AM-11:00AM / Westin, Stone Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Georgia Malandraki, Purdue U; Michelle Ciucci, U of Wisconsin - Madison; Lori Burkhead Morgan, Med Coll of Georgia; Jo Puntil, Dixie Regional Med Ctr This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Swallowing/Feeding and Associated Disorders. This course provides current insights into the physiology and neurophysiology of swallowing. Discussion of historical perspectives of dysphagia interventions, key parameters for implementation of evidenced- based practice and hypothesis-driven treatment, the future of dysphagia care highlighting strength and skill-based programs, novel combinations, and personalized medicine. Parameters will be discussed with examples from developmental, structural, age-related, and neurogenic causes of swallowing disorders. TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (GI) SC13  Assessment & Treatment of TBI in the Elderly FR 8:00AM-11:00AM / Westin, Paine Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Carole Roth, Dept of Defense; Erin Mattingly, Enterprise Resource Performance, Inc This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 15: Gerontology. TBI is the cause of more than 800,000 emergency room visits per year for survivors age 65 and older with patients 75 and older having the highest rate of hospitalization and death resulting from TBI (Thompson, McCormick, & Kagan, 2006). This course will outline the etiology and epidemiology of TBI as well assessment, treatment, and discharge considerations specific to elderly patients.
