This can lead to psychopathology, preventable adverse results, and reduced quality of life. Patients have the right to effective communication and the SLP has a responsibility to restore communication in these vulnerable patients. This presentation will focus on verbal communication options for this patient population. 1049 Therapy is More Than the Treatment Room: Using Mobile Technology to Foster Compliance & Generalization TH 10:15AM-12:15PM / CC, 252AB (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jarrad Van Stan, Massachusetts General Ctr for Laryngeal Surgery & Voice Rehab; Eric Hunter, Michigan St U; Eva van Leer, Georgia St U; Elizabeth Grillo, West Chester U; Robert Hillman, MGH Inst This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Voice and Alaryngeal Communication and SIG 3: Voice and Voice Disorders. This seminar is about utilizing mobile technology to extend the reach of voice therapy beyond the therapy room to foster compliance and generalization. Ambulatory monitoring/ dosimetry used for biofeedback, utilization of commercially available mobile phone apps and mobile technologies for conducting teletherapy in real world settings will be discussed via didactic lecture and interactive panel discussion. ACADEMIC AND CLINICAL EDUCATION (GI) 1050 Adults’ Clinical Learning Behaviors: Lessons for Academic & Clinical Educators TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 156C (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Patrick Roy Walden, St John’s U This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Academic and Clinical Education and SIG 14: Cultural and Linguistic Diversity. Adults learn differently than children; adults are often self-directed (Knowles, 1985). For example, SLPs reported learning through self-directed seeking of information from colleagues, the extant literature, and from themselves through trial-and-error approaches (Walden & Bryan, 2011). This presentation will describe adult (andrological) approaches to learning through experience and how to infuse them into curricular design in academic and clinical education. 1051 Building Resilience in Future CSD Professionals: Patterns & Priorities for Graduate Training Programs TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 103 (Lvl 1) Introductory; Research AUTHOR(S): Janet Tilstra, St Cloud State U; Leighanne Mahoney, St Cloud State U; Julie Nowariak, St Cloud State U; Asher Crawley, St Cloud State U In this session, traits associated with resilience in emerging CSD professionals are reviewed based on data collected from a regional survey of CSD graduate students. Emphasis is placed on similarities and differences between student and faculty perceptions and responsibilities in promoting resilience. Last, presenters will lead a student/faculty panel discussing methods programs can adopt to support resilience in students. 1052 Designing the Optimal CF Mentor-Mentee Experience TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 107C (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Lynn Flahive, Texas Christian U; Amy Thorpe Wiley, ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital Representatives from the Council for Clinical Certification in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CFCC) will provide attendees with an overview of the Clinical Fellowship.

Holistic admissions processes can help identify students that are a “best fit” for individual programs, while also increasing the diversity of incoming cohorts. This presentation will review the science behind holistic admissions and present strategies for implementation. 1055 I Need Help Passing the Praxis-SLP the First Time! Practical Test-Taking & Study Strategies TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 157ABC (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Glen Tellis, Misericordia U; Celeste Roseberry-McKibbin, CSU, Sacramento; Adina Rosenthal, Misericordia U Speech-language pathology graduate students nationwide must take and pass the Praxis-SLP examination to obtain national certification. Many states also require the Praxis for licensing purposes. Students experience high levels of stress while they prepare for this exam. This oral seminar provides practical study strategies and test-taking tips to help students pass the Praxis examination the first time. 1056 Improving the Clinical Fellow Experience in Skilled Nursing Facilities TH 1:30PM-2:30PM / CC, 156AB (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Laura Boutin, Preferred Therapy Solutions Improving the clinical fellow experience in skilled nursing facilities is vital to high quality care for the geriatric population. This session will focus on breakdown of data collected from CFs to identify factors that lead to a positive, successful experience. Participants will learn how to implement a mentor-pathway, empowering them to lead the next generation of clinicians to professional success.
