Early Hearing Detection and Intervention: Issues and Trends
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.45
4.5
For many years, states have been following national guidelines for universal newborn hearing screenings to help identify children with hearing loss and coordinate follow-up. Yet there are still significant numbers of children who are lost to follow-up and do not receive timely care. This journal self-study explores issues related to early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI), including what data are collected, how process changes may affect follow-up, which factors appear to most influence follow-up after the identification of hearing loss, and whether or not adding genetic testing to the newborn hearing screening process will aid in the detection of at-risk children. The self-study also looks at what can be done to support parents of children with hearing loss and how identification after the newborn period influences the timeliness of service delivery. Clinicians who work with newborns with hearing loss will benefit from learning more about the obstacles that prevent families from obtaining timely services and ways to assist other professionals and parents to ensure optimal care.

Treatment Options for Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS)
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.45
4.5
Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a complex motor speech disorder that oftenrequires lengthy treatment and may contribute, like many other speech disorders inchildren, to academic and social difficulties. Speech-language pathologists treatingchildren with CAS need a solid understanding of motor learning principles and howtreatment for CAS differs from that of other speech sound disorders. This journal self-study addresses what is currently known about treatment outcomes for CAS andexplores specific treatment programs that have been shown to benefit children with CASand are supported by evidence. Information about incorporating biofeedback, which isnot commonly used in the treatment of CAS, is also discussed, with preliminary studiesshowing promising results. In addition to specific treatment programs and tools, adiscussion of how to structure and vary treatment tasks is included, with all studiesproviding recommendations that can be incorporated immediately int

Psychosocial Effects of Stuttering
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
Stuttering is a multifaceted disorder that can have a significant impact on people who stutter, one that extends beyond the actual communication difficulties these individuals encounter. Social, emotional, and psychological issues can accompany stuttering, largely as a result of society’s depictions of and reactions to those who stutter. This journal self-study addresses these non-speech factors that speech-language pathologists often address during treatment, including the stigma associated with stuttering, the impact of stuttering on quality of life, and how the use of safety behaviors may actually inhibit the reduction of issues like anxiety. One article also provides an alternative perspective, suggesting that while some people who stutter may experience some of these psychosocial issues, they may not identify them as personally significant or wish to address them in treatment. While most of the information addresses the adult stuttering population, the concepts presented apply to children as well, and clinicians working with people of all ages who stutter will find clinically relevant information that they can begin to incorporate into their client interactions.

Improving Reading and Writing in People With Aphasia
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
Adults with aphasia present with a wide array of communication challenges, including difficulty with written language. Written language challenges often do not receive as much clinical attention as spoken language difficulties, but they can have a significant impact on daily activities, such as reading the newspaper or restaurant menus, writing notes, and completing forms. This journal self-study explores treatment approaches to improve reading and writing skills in people with aphasia. The articles explore the use of texting to improve spelling ability, the use of direct attention training to address reading comprehension, strategies for targeting phonological deficits to improve oral reading, and the ever-growing concern about the cost effectiveness of aphasia treatments and how best to demonstrate the benefits of these services to payers and others who request justification.

Reading and Writing Development in School-Age Children: Current Concepts
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.65
6.5
Many SLPs are playing an increasing role in addressing literacy skills and often work as part of a team in schools to improve students’ reading and writing. This journal self-study adds to the knowledge base of SLPs working on literacy. Five articles address how literacy progresses over time in both typically developing children and those with speech and language disorders. SLPs who work with school-age children in or outside of schools will come away with an increased understanding of the role of linguistic awareness skills—such as phonological, morphological, and orthographic awareness—on reading and writing development, as well as the importance of vocabulary and overall language development. Each article provides recommendations for clinical practice that SLPs can consider as they continue to expand their literacy instruction.

Using Measurement Tools in Assessment and Treatment of Dysphagia
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.45
4.5
Accurate and consistent measurement during the assessment and treatment of feeding and swallowing disorders is necessary to ensure that clinical decisions best meet patient needs. This journal self-study presents five articles that describe recent research related to the measurement of eating and swallowing behaviors and tools. For those interested in pediatrics, this product addresses the development of a tool to more accurately assess pediatric behavioral feeding issues as well as a description of how chewing develops in young children. For those working with adults, this self-study includes a tutorial on the use of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assess and treat swallowing disorders as well as research on how the perceived taste of a bolus influences swallowing behaviors. A fifth article discusses how the line spread test can be used as a visual tool to quickly and more accurately determine liquid thickness.

Managing Dysphagia in the Schools
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 1.1

The number of students with dysphagia has increased, augmented by growing numbers of graduates of neonatal intensive care units and children with autism spectrum disorder. Furthermore, changes in federal legislation and case law have clarified some of the issues that are central to administrative decisions, educational programs, and related services associated with dysphagia management in the schools. This growing population of children with special needs has stimulated increased interest and research. The contributing authors in this clinical forum, each with significant experience that informs their views and observations, report their research and provide reviews of the literature.

The Case for the Narrow View of Reading
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.4
4.0
The fundamental problem with a broad view of reading is that it conflates two very different abilities—word recognition and comprehension. The narrow view restricts the scope of reading to word recognition, thereby focusing on a skill that can be taught to all students except those with most severe disabiliities. This clinical forum presents a rationale for embracing the narrow view of reading, followed by responses from leading researchers and clinicians.

The Use of Nonspeech Oral Motor Treatments for Developmental Speech Sound Production Disorders
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.5
5.0
The widespread use of oral motor treatments (OMTs) to treat developmental speech-sound production disorders has elicited spirited debate among speech-language pathologists and communication scientists. Given the controversial nature of these approaches, there is an urgent need for some degree of consensus regarding the applications and limitations of OMTs. This clinical forum summarizes historical and theoretical motivations for OMTs, documents current clinical trends, evaluates existing scientific support, and identifies future research needs.
