Perspectives, SIG 6, Vol. 1(Part 1), 2016
Format(s): SIG Perspectives and Exam
CEUs: 0.1
1.0
This Perspectives focused on minimal to mild hearing loss in infants and children. We summarized how mild transient hearing loss, when induced during a developmental critical period, can cause lingering impairment in auditory perception. An animal model was used to study how hearing loss affected cellular mechanics and processing in the auditory cortex, and how these changes resulted in perceptual deficits. We shared the current opinion on implications of minimal to mild permanent hearing loss (MMHL) in children, and how to determine the optimal management approach. Use of FM systems for MMHL and fitting recommendations were discussed. Finally, we presented how to determine whether hearing amplification is appropriate for an infant with mild bilateral hearing loss and discussed recommendations for fitting the hearing aids. We discussed additional factors of concomitant handicap, mobility considerations, listening environment, and family readiness and motivation, which should be considered when determining the optimal hearing management approach for an infant with mild bilateral hearing loss.

Format(s): SIG Perspectives and Exam
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
This Perspectives discussed the selection and implementation of effective teaching methods for developing students’ critical thinking skills and the significance of tapping into students’ higher level cognitive and metacognitive abilities. The articles also examined the efficiency and acceptability of two features of clinical supervision, a fidelity checklist and three digital forms of supervisory feedback that were adapted in a community-based clinical practicum. Finally, the authors reviewed resources and provided strategies that may assist speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to support effective communication between health care providers and communication vulnerable patients.

The articles included: (a) information on how to use formal and informal procedures to assess bilingual children; (b) a case study of how characteristics of Chinese culture might affect interpretation of social communication assessments and; (c) a qualitative description and analysis of how clinicians can use code-switching ability to help differentiate between pragmatic language difference and disorder.

This Perspectives addressed various clinical topics which may be of interest to speech-language pathologists, audiologists, clinical training programs, and students. Short and colleagues discussed reimbursement issues that frequently accompany telepractice services and a process for collecting efficacy data in an effort to change reimbursement policy. Hughes and colleagues compared remote and in-person visual reinforcement audiometry and conditioned play audiometry in young children with cochlear implants. Finally, Cohn and Cason discussed the various telehealth policies and processes that exist across disciplines, and how ASHA members can benefit from resources that exist outside the communication sciences and disorders professions.

These articles focus on speech-language services to English language learners (ELLs). They provide an overview of strategies to enhance English vocabulary instruction for ELLs. They discuss how speech-language pathologists think and talk about dialect diversity in the United States and elsewhere in order to better serve children and advocate for the field of communication disorders. This part also provides public school clinicians with strategies for preparing and conducting assessments for ELL students in their native languages. It considers speech-language pathologists who are competent in the student’s language and for those who will work with a trained interpreter in the student’s language. It explains how to prepare the interpreter to conduct an interview, a conference and/or an assessment of an ELL student.

Perspectives, SIG 4, Vol. 1(Part 1), 2016
Format(s): SIG Perspectives and Exam
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
These three research articles span a wide range of topics in fluency disorders. First, evidence is presented that supports theories that people who stutter may exhibit increased speech monitoring when compared to typically fluent peers. Next, results of a survey conducted with self-identified fluency specialists are presented. These results suggest that both undergraduate and graduate academic and clinical experiences, as well as other related fluency experiences, are important factors in the future identification as a fluency specialist. Finally, the responses of college-level career counselors to students who stutter are presented.
