"Promoting Health Hearing Over the Lifespan"

Presenter: James W. Hall III, Ph.D.

OVERVIEW:
There is mounting evidence that good hearing is related to healthy living. A healthy diet, regular vigorous exercise, not smoking,and consistent use of hearing protection during sound exposure may prevent hearing loss. Hearing impairment in adults is associated with a long list of common chronic diseases. This session includes a detailed review of an evidence-based protocol for diagnostic auditory assessment, with an emphasis on the inclusion of tests that add value to the diagnosis and management of hearing loss and related disorders. A significant portion of the session focuses on the role of diet and risk factors in hearing loss and tinnitus. Audiologists are encouraged to collaborate closely with primary care physicians in mitigating development of hearing loss over the lifespan and managing patients with preventable hearing loss. The session also includes case studies to illustrate the feasibility and diagnostic advantages of a more patient-specific test battery.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Participants will:
1. Describe a value-added auditory test
2. Identify lifestyle factors associated with risk of hearing loss and tinnitus
3. List an objective auditory test
4. Identify tests used for patients with cognitive impairment.
5. Discuss a link between comorbid conditions and the risk for hearing loss as well as central auditory processing deficits in an older adult

"Unpacking Case Journeys"

Presenter: Nancy Tarshis, M.A., M.S., CCC-SLP

OVERVIEW:
Watching a clinical case study, or “case journey,” unfold overtime can be very informative and powerful—and gaining tools to unpack the case journeys of the individuals you support is even better. In this morning course, we explore several clinical case journeys and apply a unique six-step decision-making template as a guide through the treatment process. You will learn to organize your treatment planning according to new Social Thinking foundational categories: how the social world works and how I work (navigate to regulate) in the social world. The participant will learn a variety of concepts, frameworks, and strategies to build social competencies that align with an individual’s age, personality, social learning strengths/challenges, developmental abilities, and mental health challenges. In the afternoon, we will talk in depth about younger and older groups of students, clients, or patients and explore how different case journeys unfold. You will get the opportunity to practice thinking about your own cases using the six-step decision making template.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Participants will:
1. Define the six-step decision-making template
2. Discuss how treatment planning begins by exploring how the social world works prior to working (navigate to regulate) in the social world
3. Identify how different treatment frameworks and strategies can be bundled or layered to address similar targets
4. Describe the process of organizing, planning, and selecting practical treatment targets and tools from the Social Thinking Methodology

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Participants will:
1. Identify major gaps in dysphagia diagnostics: what keeps you from sleeping at night?
2. List at least four outcome measures obtained from the current “gold standard” dysphagia diagnostic procedures and indicate whether they are considered subjective or objective and why.
3. List resources to help you decide when/if you should adopt new diagnostic tools.
4. Describe something you learned from this course that you will immediately use in your dysphagia evaluations.
5. Identify major gaps in dysphagia treatment: what keeps you from sleeping at night?
