Why and How to Practice Real-Life Activities in Speech Therapy (Recorded Webinar)

Why and How to Practice Real-Life Activities in Speech Therapy (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 70 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 21 Minutes

Impacting clients' life participation is an ideal for speech therapy, especially with the growing emphasis on person-centered care in health care. However, using participation as an intervention is starkly different from the traditional medical model used in many settings. It can be unclear how to transparently address participation in therapy. This course reviews the important evidence-based reasons why we should include participation as an intervention, and walks through several case examples to demonstrate how to use participation in speech therapy with the adult neurological population.

Person-Centered Approach for Assessment of Adult Neurogenic Disorders

Presented by Sarah Baar, MA, CCC-SLP

Person-Centered Approach for Assessment of Adult Neurogenic Disorders

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 72 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 36 Minutes

Person-centered care is newly emphasized as a best practice, in general health care as well as speech pathology. However, this approach contrasts significantly with the previously emphasized medical model and impairment-based testing and goals. Assessment and goal setting are fundamental steps in shaping a therapist's treatment for a highly meaningful and person-centered approach. This course uses best practices, evidence, and practical ideas to describe a person-centered assessment model and functional goal-writing frameworks for the adult neurogenic population, with practical examples from speech-language pathology across settings, from acute care to home health to outpatient therapy.

Creating Functional Home Programs in Adult Rehab

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 68 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 36 Minutes

Person-centered care is emphasized as a best practice in general health care as well as in speech pathology. This course looks at applying a person-centered, functional approach to the final part of the clinical process: the home program (or homework). Mass practice is needed for new skills and strategies to be implemented in one's daily life, in addition to interesting, relevant stimuli. However, many times home programs are assigned that do not relate to everyday life (workbook sheets, card games, etc). This section will explain the importance of using home programs to practice and carry over skills in real environments. Several ideas of personally relevant home programs will be discussed for both language and cognitive goals. This course will use evidence and practical ideas across the continuum to give the SLP simple tools and ways to implement a functional, person-centered approach for the home program piece of treating adult neurogenic disorders, including language and cognitive home program ideas.

Close The Game Closet: Evidence & Tools for a Person-Centered Approach for Treatment of Adult Neurogenic Disorders (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from standard MedBridge courses.

Person-centered care is emphasized as a best practice in general health care as well as speech pathology. However, current therapy practices continue to use games and workbooks as a primary therapy tool for a variety of reasons without clearly emphasizing a link to functional needs of the patient. How can we choose more meaningful therapy tools and interventions using what research tells us about adult rehab? This webinar will describe evidence-based and personalized interventions for the SLP to use in therapy for language and cognitive disorders in adults across the continuum of care.
