Closing the Gap: Advocating for Brain-Based Learning
presented by Nicole M. Sergent & Lacy D. Morise

This course will be retired and no longer available as of January 13, 2023. Please complete the course by December 31, 2022, to receive credit.

The brain and its coordination with the body is a major player in how a young child learns. Despite the medical research that proves this fact, American children are often taught with strategies that do not take this into consideration. The result is a generation of children who are over-stressed, anxious, unhealthy, and ill prepared to succeed in future endeavors. As therapists, we can support parents and educators in closing the gap between what our children need to learn and the most effective ways to teach them, incorporating their physical, social, and emotional needs. At the same time, based on this research, we can strengthen the quality of our own therapy intervention. In this lecture, participants will obtain a thorough understanding of how brain based, movement, and sensory-rich learning affects positive outcomes for children. Research and theory will be shared.

Treatment and Intervention of Speech Sound Disorders in Children
presented by Lynn Williams

Clinicians are faced with new ideas and must consider information to integrate into their clinical application at a pace that often makes it difficult to implement into clinical practice. The time required to learn the new approaches, to develop the individualized treatment materials, and to implement the new procedures are frequently beyond the scope of already burdened daily schedules. Four models of contrastive phonological intervention will be described, along with video-taped demonstrations. A treatment paradigm will be described for implementing the contrastive phonological intervention approaches. Finally, a Phonological Analysis Summary and Clinical Management tool will be presented that will allow participants to integrate all three components of assessment, target selection, and intervention planning within a single form.

Measuring the Entire Stuttering Disorder
presented by J. Scott Yaruss

Understanding the stuttering disorder requires more than a simple count of stuttering behaviors. Although a reliable and valid count of behavior may form the foundation for some aspects of clinical decision-making, a broader view of the entire condition is critical to planning individualized, yet comprehensive, therapy. This course, the second in a two-part series on the clinical measurement of stuttering, addresses other aspects of the stuttering disorder—in addition to the stuttering behavior itself—that clinicians will want to consider during assessment. Specific factors to be discussed include the speaker’s reactions to stuttering, the functional communication difficulties a speaker may experience as a result of stuttering, and the overall adverse impact that stuttering may have on the speaker’s quality of life.

Bringing Back Play
presented by Nicole M. Sergent & Lacy D. Morise

"This course will be retired and no longer available as of January 11, 2022. Please complete the course by December 31, 2021 to receive credit or look for Purposeful Play for Therapeutic Progress , available in the course catalogue.

It is well established that play is the primary way young children learn and develop, but what happens when society’s view on play changes? Play trends and early development suffer when adults change the way they view play, change the environments children play in, and change materials children play with.

In this course, therapists will explore the changing culture of play in current society, including what factors have influenced this change, as well as the evolution of play, and the importance of play in 5 domains of child development (gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, social-emotional, and speech and language). Special attention will be given to sensory development and the role that play has in sensory regulation. With attention to purposeful play, the presenters will model pairing 3 detailed milestones in each of the 5 developmental domains (15 total examples), with hands on, easily reproducible, purposeful play activities that can be incorporated quickly into pediatric practice. The course covers practical strategies for choosing types of toys and materials to meet the goals of each stage of development, recommendations for play spaces, resources that support traditional, developmental play, and the role of the pediatric therapist in becoming an advocate for play.
