Early Intervention Primary Service Provision in Natural Environments
Format(s): eWorkshop
Primary service provision in natural environments is a service delivery approach that is increasingly used with young children and families in early intervention. This team approach – where one professional is identified as the primary provider for the family and receives coaching support from other team members – can present challenges for some professionals and families due to the extension or release of more traditional roles. This session explores some foundational underpinnings of the delivery model and discusses its key components for successful implementation, including how children learn in their natural environments, how family-centered practices are integral to intervention, and how principles of adult learning are critical to making intervention successful.

The articles in this journal self-study explore ways to improve hearing aid outcomes by targeting patient satisfaction through increased self-efficacy. The first article establishes an overall framework for client satisfaction by identifying essential concepts underlying hearing aid management. The second article describes a new area of research regarding self-fitting, which promotes self-efficacy by involving clients in adjusting their own hearing aids from day 1. The third article examines psychosocial benefits and improved satisfaction resulting from hearing aid trials. The final article empirically tests the connection between self-efficacy of specific management skills and hearing aid satisfaction.
Improving Clinical Training for Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists
Format(s): Journal (Online)

While focused on academic training, these articles will also benefit clinical supervisors as well as practicing clinicians looking to find new training methods for themselves and colleagues.
The Role of Risk Factors in Assessment for Communication Disorders
Format(s): Journal (Online)
Clinicians are well-trained in collecting and reporting thorough family and medical case histories of their clients.

Addressing the Social Needs of People With Communication Disorders
Format(s): Journal (Online)
A communication disorder can have a profound impact on many aspects of a person’s life, including school, work, leisure, and social relationships. Sudden changes, such as those that occur after stroke or other illness, as well as more gradual difficulties, such as those associated with age-related hearing loss, can negatively affect interactions with other people and engagement in daily activities. This journal self-study explores how social networks and feelings of isolation or loneliness may change when a person experiences communication difficulties. It also looks at how well SLPs and audiologists recognize and address the social and emotional needs of their patients during treatment. Clinicians working with older adults with speech, language, and hearing disorders will come away with a better understanding of the impact of social and familial support on patient success and how to better address these needs when planning treatment.

Improving Efficiency of Intervention for Children With Language Challenges
Format(s): Journal (Online)
A significant proportion of treatment research aims to determine whether particular interventions are effective in addressing children’s language deficits, but just as important are ways to increase efficiency of these interventions in practice. The articles in this journal self-study examine a range of variables that promote efficiency. The first article manipulates two parameters of dosage—rate and distribution of teaching episodes—and compares the effects on vocabulary learning in preschoolers with autism spectrum disorder. The second article examines the dosage parameter of schedule (massed or distributed) on an intervention targeting grammatical morphemes in preschoolers with specific language impairment (SLI). The third article examines adequate intensity for vocabulary acquisition for children with SLI during interactive book reading. A final article demonstrates how the addition of one training component in early educator professional development leads to greater efficiency in children’s responses to the same intervention presented in the third article.

The approach allows school clinicians to transform their programs by strengthening their relationships with fellow school professionals and improving the breadth, depth, and quality of collaboration that is already happening. The course describes a unique, six-stage collaboration process that fosters a common frame of reference and meaningful relationships with education colleagues. Each stage incorporates a goal, ready-to-implement strategies, and interactive tools and resources SLPs can employ to encourage buy-in and engagement. Throughout the webinar, participants are guided to think about the process from the perspective of their own role, organization, school culture, school partners, student population, services, and goals. Participants will create an action plan for reframing their own programs.

SLPs and audiologists are trained to help people improve their communication abilities and functioning in daily life, and in doing this, they often need to address people's emotional well-being too. This webinar provides clinicians with basic information about counseling people of all ages who experience communication disorders, as well as their families, drawing on standard practice in counseling psychology. The session will introduce what counseling is and how counseling procedures relate to overall therapy for people with communication disorders. Participants will learn several specific counseling strategies to help them understand the client's (or family member's) perspective, provide helpful responses to clients' statements of emotion, and support clients in taking responsibility for changes in treatment. Other topics include: the nature of the emotional reactions clients may experience, how to further develop your counseling skills, and, in particular, which aspects of the counseling process are within the SLP's and audiologist's scope of practice and which situations should be referred to other professionals.
