CRANIOFACIAL AND VELOPHARYNGEAL DISORDERS (SLP) SC25  Is it the Equipment or the Operator? Evaluation & Treatment for Velopharyngeal Dysfunction SA 8:00AM-11:00AM / Westin, Webster Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kelly Cordero, Dignity Health; Jessica Williams, Barrow Cleft & Craniofacial Ctr; Lynn Fox, UNC Craniofacial Ctr This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 5: Craniofacial and Velopharyngeal Disorders. Velopharyngeal closure is the foundation for normal resonance and articulation. The goal of assessing individuals with cleft palate or other velopharyngeal disorders is to determine if resonance and articulation concerns are anatomically and/or behaviorally based. This course will utilize video examples to illustrate effective assessment and treatment recommendations for individuals with velopharyngeal dysfunction including surgery, therapy, both or neither. GLOBAL ISSUES AND PRACTICES (GI) SC26  Ethical Issues in Global Service Provision, Teaching & Research SA 8:00AM-11:00AM / Westin, Revere Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Brooke Hallowell, Sciences & Rehab at Springfield Coll; Elise Davis- McFarland, ASHA President, 2018; Carolyn Higdon, U of Mississippi; Marlene Salas- Provance, Bilingual Advantage, Inc This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 17: Global Issues in Communication Sciences and Related Disorders. Over 1,700 ASHA members practice outside the U.S. in settings/cultures requiring ethical considerations associated with communication sciences and disorders programs, research and service provision. Additional ASHA members/students volunteer. The emphasis of this presentation will be on ethical considerations in achieving sustainable and culturally relevant programs and services in areas that may lack public policies and other infrastructure supports.
