Pre-convention workshops are a great way to earn additional CEUs before the onvention officially begins. Tickets for these educational sessions may also be purchased even if you do not plan to attend the convention—a valuable professional development opportunity for members who live in the Denver area.
You can buy tickets for the pre-convention sessions on the convention registration form. (To register for a pre-convention session only, and not the ASHA Convention, complete the registration form by selecting the “Wednesday only” option.) Choose one of these four exciting sessions:
Concussion Reconsidered in Children, Adolescents & Young Adults: New Science, New Roles for SLPs
Kathryn Hardin, University of Colorado-Boulder
Concussion research has changed dramatically. This session—developed by the Colorado Speech-Language-Hearing Association (CSHA) and the convention committee for the traumatic brain injury topic area—will highlight why students on speech-language pathology caseloads are particularly vulnerable to concussion, dispel myths including “brain rest” and second-impact syndrome, and differentiate profiles of traumatic versus sport-related concussion. Attendees will also learn how clinicians may inadvertently prolong symptomatology and about guidelines for implementing active rehabilitation.
Bilingual Speakers With Aphasia: Evidence, Principles, and Procedures in Clinical Management
José Centeno, St. John’s University
Developed by CSHA, this session will look at how the combined effect of steady demographic and epidemiological factors in the country will continue to affect adult neurorehabilitation programs, particularly in the number of bilingual individuals needing services. The presenter will discuss the evidence, theoretical principles and clinical procedures for the personalized clinical management of bilingual persons with aphasia.
Speech and Resonance Intervention for Cleft Palate: Speech Therapy Approaches Related to Surgical Timelines
Theresa Snelling and Sarah Sogan, Theresa M. Snelling & Associates, Inc.
This session, developed by CSHA, will dive into how speech and resonance treatment related to cleft palate requires understanding of the structures contributing to “oral” speech development; how structural differences affect the approach to intervention; and the surgical timeline for secondary surgical management in the presence of velopharyngeal insufficiency. Direct therapy techniques and evaluation tools will be provided.
Spelling Error Analysis: A Clinical Tool for Assessing and Planning Intervention for Reading and Writing
Jan Wasowicz, Learning By Design, Inc.
Learn how specific language deficits manifest as specific patterns of students’ misspelling in this session developed by the American Board of Child Language and Language Disorders. Receive hands-on practice with methods of analyzing spelling errors, review and discuss case-study assessment data, and learn to use the data to plan speech-to-print, multi-linguistic intervention. Bring samples of your students’ misspellings for error analysis.
