Assessment and Treatment of Social Language Deficits in School-Aged Students
Format(s): SIG Perspectives
This Perspectives activity focuses on the assessment and treatment of school age students with social language deficits. The first article defines three different conversational profiles for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)and discusses intervention strategies appropriate for students within each of the profiles. The second article analyzes the benefit of using analog tasks (i.e., tasks that represent real-life social tasks) with toddlers through adolescents to evaluate social communication abilities and guide intervention. The third article aims to provide support for best practices in assessing students with social communication deficits, as determined by results of a survey of speech-language pathologists’ current methods and approaches. The final article examines how effective commercially available standardized tests are for evaluating the social and pragmatic language deficits of students with social pragmatic communication disorder within and separate from ASD.

Evidence-Based Practices for Treating Language Disorders in Dual Language Learners
Format(s): Journal (Online)
SLPs are working with an increasing number of children and families who identify as bilingual, multilingual, or dual language learners (DLLs). Researchers are exploring strategies that are most effective for treating DLLs with language disorders and are also evaluating cultural differences related to family expectations in order to improve the validity of interventions. This journal self-study explores how family expectations can impact the effectiveness of interventions, how expectations may vary across cultures, and what SLP interventions are considered evidence-based when working with DLLs and culturally and linguistically diverse families. These articles are from a two-part forum – Innovations in Clinical Practice for Dual Language Learners – published in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology.

Neural Underpinnings of Aphasia Recovery
Format(s): Journal (Online)
This journal self-study course is composed of papers from the Research Symposium at the 2018 ASHA Convention. The articles summarize much of the accumulating evidence regarding neurological change in post-stroke aphasia recovery. The range of topics covered in this self-study include neurological recovery patterns according to phase of recovery and treatment target (e.g., word vs. sentence), neurological and genetic factors that influence recovery, and methodological considerations to increase validity of findings. These articles will appeal to researchers and clinicians looking for current evidence on dependent neuroplasticity after stroke.
Statistical Methods in Audiology Research
Format(s): Journal (Online)
This journal self-study course is composed of papers from a 2019 Research Forum, Advancing Statistical Methods in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. These selected articles provide advanced-level discussion about clinically relevant statistical methodologies to give audiologists a strong foundation from which to analyze and understand the statistical research they come across to decide when and how to apply it in practice. The articles examine frequential and Bayesian statistical methods as well as propensity scores and linear-mixed model analyses.
Instructional Strategies for Students With ASD
Format(s): Journal (Online)
This journal self-study course highlights various instructional strategies that demonstrate positive progress for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The findings and recommendations can assist SLPs in choosing strategies that produce targeted outcomes for students with ASD on their caseload.
Clinical Approaches and Practices for the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia
Format(s): SIG Perspectives
First, Katie Strong and Barbara Shadden provide an overview of the relationship between narrative, identity, and social co-construction for persons with aphasia and narrative treatment approaches for identity renegotiation. Second, Jamie Azios and Jack Damico relate the Lifetime Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA) and issues in longterm care (LTC) along with practice recommendations for implementing LPAA in LTC. Third, Jerry Hoepner and Tom Sather examine the potential approaches for teaching and mentoring students in LPAA. Fourth, Rochelle Cohen-Schneider, Melodie Chan, Denise McCall, Allison Tedesco, and Ann Abramson explore balancing relationshipcentered care and professionalism. Finally, Sarah Wallace, Elena Donoso Brown, Anna Saylor, Erica Lapp, and Joanna Eskander describe aphasia-friendly modifications for occupational therapy assessments and home programs.

Identifying, Assessing, and Treating Dyslexia: What SLPs Need to Know
Format(s): Journal (Online)
As a result of recent laws and regulations, more SLPs in schools are treating children with dyslexia. The journal articles in this self-study – from an October 2018 Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools clinical forum on dyslexia – provide “state-of-the-science” information to help SLPs understand dyslexia in relation to other speech and language disorders, as well as ways to identify, assess, and treat this disorder. Clinicians will find practical tips that they can immediately incorporate into practice.
Capitalizing on Children’s Learning Patterns for Fast, Effective Language Intervention
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Taking into account children’s learning processes is important when SLPs design interventions aimed at teaching new skills or expanding abilities. This journal self-study – based on a special issue of Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools – focuses on the type of learning that happens implicitly and quickly, without effort or even the knowledge that we are learning. This type of learning – known as statistical learning – refers to the way that children recognize patterns in the world around them. As language is full of patterns, this type of learning plays a large role in how children learn sound production, words, grammatical structures, and more. The articles in this selfstudy explore how SLPs can capitalize on implicit learning processes during intervention to help learning happen faster.

Identifying Developmental Language Disorder in Linguistically Diverse Schools
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Although clinicians have long understood the risks of misidentifying an English learner or nonmainstream dialect speaker with language impairment, research to date has lacked a more nuanced view of assessment within diverse populations. Specifically, practitioners need the knowledge and tools to diagnose “disorder within difference,” a concept that is introduced and then exemplified in this journal self-study course, based on a Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools clinical forum. The authors of the articles examine a variety of assessment and screening tools used with children of varying linguistic backgrounds, including speakers of rural southern dialects, speakers of African American English, and Spanish-English bilingual children.
Cutting-Edge Issues in Audiology: Patient-Centered Care and Service Delivery for Older Adults
Format(s): eWorkshop
This course includes seven recorded sessions from the online conference “Audiology 2017: Cutting-Edge Perspectives in Service Delivery for Older Adults.” Taken together, these sessions illustrate the benefits of patient-centered care and how to incorporate this perspective in your service delivery. The sessions also offer other tips and tools for improving service delivery more generally to provide better outcomes for older adults with hearing loss. The conference included a total of 17 sessions, with the broad goal of presenting audiologists with innovative approaches to managing hearing loss and improving service delivery for this population.
Specific Language Impairment in Special Populations
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Proper diagnosis of specific language impairment (SLI) in children is essential for elucidating possible causal pathways of language impairments, assessment for identification of language impairments, linguistic dimensions of language impairments, and long-term outcomes. This journal self-study contains articles from a Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research supplement that describe SLI in detail, as well as highlight a few clinical areas in which this approach has been applied. Increased knowledge of SLIs together with evidence-based assessment strategies can assist practitioners in identifying and overcoming challenges faced by children with concomitant health conditions or nonmainstream language backgrounds.
