Issues and Answers
Educational Relevance of Speech-Language Impairments and Service Delivery Models
Lissa Power de-Fur, PhD, CCC-SLP

To help children with speech-language impairments meet state and local academic expectations, speech-language pathologists need a thorough understanding of the source and structure of academic standards. This workshop will review academic standards from the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and will engage participants in analysis of the linguistic and communication demands of the CCSS, across grade levels and content areas. There will be a particular focus on the morphological and syntactic expectations. Building on this analysis, participants will draw conclusions regarding the real-world implications of a speech-language impairment on a child’s academic success. Practical strategies to integrate state and local academic expectations into service delivery for students in grades K-12 will be presented. These will include strategies for integration of academic content into speech-language intervention and tips for successful collaboration with general and special education partners in schools. Participants will be engaged in sharing approaches they have found successful and will leave with a collection of action steps they can implement in their schools.

Early Childhood

Suspected Childhood Apraxia of Speech (SCAS) Management
Julie Hoffmann, MA, CCC-SLP

This workshop will focus on Suspected Childhood Apraxia of Speech (SCAS) management. Many SLPs working in early childhood often face the question and eventual decision of whether a young child presents with Childhood Apraxia of Speech, with being a late talker or with having another type of speech disorder. SCAS is a diagnosis that ASHA proposed in the CAS Technical Paper in 2007. What constitutes a diagnosis of SCAS and how do you test these children? What does the treatment for SCAS entail and what are evidence-based practice methods to use for SCAS? What are the most appropriate treatments for these children whether they have SCAS or not? This workshop will discuss answers to these questions as well as discuss the following: minimally verbal children, unintelligible children, diagnostic therapy, treatment planning and execution, principles of motor learning for this age group, necessity of strong reinforcement, and parent and teacher partnering.

Medical Issues
State of the Art Voice Therapy: Why, What and How
Edie Hapner, PhD

Voice therapy has evolved over the past two decades from symptomatic treatment to treatment that is based on concepts of wound healing, physiology of muscle function, and principles of exercise, motor learning, and health behavior change. This shift has mirrored advances in medical and surgical treatment of a variety of laryngologically related diseases and disorders. Changes in the healthcare landscape have also impacted the way we treat voice disorders. This full day workshop will arm the clinician with tools for assessment and treatment of a variety of voice disorders often encountered in the adolescent to geriatric patient with voice concerns. Interactive work in voice therapy with tools that can be immediately integrated into clinical work will be emphasized.
