Language & Literacy: From the Parentís Perspective (SLPs too)

The Aging Swallow and Communication

Academically Able and Autism - 2 hours

Presented by Shannon Locke, MS, CCC-SLP; Terri Carrington, MA, CCC-SLP, from MSU/MO-DESE - Project ACCESS

You may have students who are identified as having autism, either educationally or medically, but are considered high functioning and have not met eligibility for significant academic services. However, these students still struggle, especially with social communication and executive functioning skills. While these students with autism may be academically able, they demonstrate deficits impacting their overall educational performance, including their ability to socialize and be successful post-secondary in gaining employment and becoming contributing citizens and good neighbors. This session will focus on identifying these students, their needs and suggestions for effective educational programming for them.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to analyze the impact of autism on educational performance and preparing for post-secondary life beyond the academic skills needed to make the grade, recognize non-standardized measures to assess and identify the needs of individuals with autism that are able to perform content area skills academically, yet lack the necessary soft skills for independence and employment and list contributing components that collectively make up an individuals’ soft skills and identify specific strategies to support development of these soft skills in students with autism receiving minimal to no special education minutes.

Language & Literacy: From the Parentís Perspective (SLPs too) - 2 hours

Presented by Nancy Montgomery, PhD, CCC-SLP, University of Central Missouri; Pam Craft, MS, CCC-SLP, Butler School District

How does it feel to raise a child who struggles with language and literacy when the mother is a speech-language pathologist? This session will give you two different perspectives and will take you along on two families' journeys through early intervention in the home, early childhood special education, the individualized education program (IEP) process, outside resources and services in middle school. One family lives in a rural setting and one lives in an urban area so you will hear the differences in their stories. The joys and challenges of each step will be included. The role of various professionals will be highlighted and what was helpful and what was not helpful. Navigating the special education maze is difficult for every parent. These two parents understand the rules and procedures and therefore, are in a unique position to examine the process from the inside and the outside and provide some reminders about what makes effective intervention and what makes the special education process more family friendly. Learning to read is a complex process and the answers that these families found will be included.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to identify warning signs of early language and literacy difficulties, list strategies that are helpful for school-aged clients with language and literacy difficulties, identify parent-friendly practices for speech-language pathologists working with school-aged children and identify key components of effective assessment and intervention of children who have difficulty with literacy skills.

The Aging Swallow and Communication - 1 hour

Presented by Michelle Payne, MA, CCC-SLP, Saint Louis University-SLUCare

With age, there are changes to swallowing function which result from change in the structure, motility, coordination and sensitivity of the swallow process. These changes, in conjunction with other age-related conditions, may make older adults more vulnerable to developing dysphagia. Clinicians are increasingly tasked with evaluating the older adult and must be aware of normal features of swallowing in this population in order to determine whether the patient presents with dysphagia. This session will explore healthy age-related changes to swallow function to prepare the speech-language pathologist to evaluate and diagnose this population.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to explain the difference between a healthy older swallow versus a disordered swallow, identify three changes to swallow function with age and identify appropriate therapeutic approaches to treat elderly with dysphagia.
