With the addition of pages on classroom acoustics and speech-sound disorders, ASHA’s Practice Portal now has detailed content for 17 clinical and professional issues.
The portal helps audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students in their daily practice by consolidating the best available evidence and expertise to guide clinical decision making. The page on speech-sound disorders—articulation and phonology—provides information on how to conduct a speech-sound assessment with a reluctant child, the evidence on specific treatment options, and other assessment and treatment issues.
School-based clinicians concerned that poor classroom acoustical design can be disruptive to speech perception, student behavior and educational outcomes can turn to the new classroom acoustics pages for information on construction standards, how to make modifications to improve existing acoustic conditions, and how to advocate for improved classroom acoustics.
The Practice Portal also provides direct links to ASHA’s evidence maps and easy access to tools, templates and patient handouts.
Other clinical topics on the portal are aphasia, autism spectrum disorder, dementia, newborn infant hearing screening, pediatric dysphagia, permanent childhood hearing loss, social communication disorders and superior canal dehiscence. Additional professional issues topics are audiology assistants, bilingual service delivery, caseload/workload, cultural competence, speech-language pathology assistants, telepractice and unbundling hearing aid sales.
