Thursday, March 27, 2014 Highlights: General Registration: 7:30 am 6:30 pm Morning Short Course: 8:30 am 11:45 am Exhibits & Silent Auction: 10:00 am 6:00 pm Afternoon Short Courses: 1:00 4:15 pm MSHA Annual Business Meeting & Reception for Past Presidents: 4:15 5:15 pm Evening Seminar: (Michele Eaddy) 6:30 8:30 pm Evening Seminar: (Richard Merson) 6:30 8:30 pm Welcome Reception: 8:30 10:30 pm Short Course: 8:30 11:45 am Progress Monitoring of Oral Language in Multi- Tiered Systems of Support Invited Speaker: Douglas Petersen, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Assistant Professor, University of Wyoming Dr. Petersen has several years of clinical and research experience. His research is driven by a desire to greatly increase the prevalence of academic success for all children, including those who are culturally and linguistically diverse. Specifically, Dr. Petersen s research has focused on the identification, validation, and empirical testing of preventative and effective methods of assessment and intervention for reading and language, with two major strands of research that are distinct yet highly interconnected; early reading assessment using dynamic assessment, and language assessment and intervention using dynamic assessment, progress monitoring procedures, 1 and multi-tiered systems of supports using narrative language. Millions of students across the country are not reading or writing at grade level, and a large percentage of our students are far from meeting the Common Core State Standards. This seminar will make a strong case for the current, pressing need our public schools have for a greater focus on oral language progress monitoring and explicit, multi-tiered systems of support for oral language. This hands-on seminar will provide an overview of and offer specific training on oral language progress monitoring and multi-tiered language intervention procedures using narration. Douglas Petersen is presenting a short course on Thursday afternoon: Progress Monitoring of Oral Language and Multi-Tiered Narrative Language Intervention. It is only recommended that participants take both sessions, not required. Double Miniseminar: 10:00 am 12:00 noon The Restorative Power of Music for a Jazz Musician with Global Aphasia: Life-Participation Restored Speakers: Gordon Krainen, Ph.D., CCC-SLP and Lynn Chenoweth, MT-BC, both at the University of Michigan Aphasia Program; and Carol C. Persad, Ph.D., ABPP, University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry Room: Prairies 4-5 This presentation will chronicle the rehab journey of an 83 year-old professional music educator and internationally recognized jazz trumpeter and recording artist following a massive L-CVA resulting in global aphasia. The program will validate the relevancy of the Life-Participation approach to aphasia (LPAA) for him. The brain-language - music relationship, a LPAA overview, and the significance of prior interests on treatment outcomes, restorative music interventions, and the subject s pre/post and current profile will be presented. We will review pertinent research on how music affects brain plasticity to facilitate motor skills. The program will be topped off with a live jazz performance by the subject and lead author! Lunch On Your OwnThe Radisson Hotel has several restaurant options and other restaurants are within walking distance just outside the door!

Short Course: 1:00 4:15 pm Leadership for the Young Professional & the Young at Heart Speakers: Sarah Rose, M.A., CCC-SLP, Encore Rehabilitation, and Gordon Krainen, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, University of Michigan Aphasia Program 2 Room: Prairies 4-5 After working in the field a few years, a young professional may begin to realize how invaluable leadership skills are to her/his day to day experiences and to the development of her/his career. A panel of accomplished leaders from the field of speech-language pathology and audiology will share their experiences and field discussions. They will explore the opportunities and challenges young professionals may face and give advice for becoming a leader in speech-language pathology within various settings. Topics discussed may include but are not limited to: pathways to becoming a leader, driving change at work, leadership skills, advocacy at various levels, involvement within professional organizations, networking, and/or interdisciplinary/team, and management skills. A light reception will immediately follow the class everyone welcome. Short Course: 1:00 4:15 pm Auditory Processing Disorders Invited Speaker: Cindy Wilson, M.A., CCC-A, Fellow, American Academy of Audiology, Innovative Hearing Services, Cindy Wilson has 33 years of experience: 18 years as a pediatric audiologist at Children s Hospital of Michigan and 15 years in private practice. Her areas of expertise include: comprehensive hearing evaluations for children and adults (including difficult-to-test populations), hearing aid evaluations and fittings for children and adults, and auditory processing evaluations. Room: Meadows Auditory Processing Disorders: Why is this subject so controversial? Are psychologists, audiologists and speechlanguage pathologists all talking about the same thing when we use the term Auditory Processing Disorder? In this short course, we will look at how psychologists and speech-language pathologists come to the conclusion that a child has an APD and how audiologists' findings support or negate this assertion. Auditory processing "lingo" will be discussed. The most commonly used tests will be explained and the auditory skills that are being evaluated will be identified. The potential effects on reading will be discussed and how different types of APD may result in different types of reading problems.

3 Miniseminar: 1:00 2:00 pm ICD-10 Implementation: Get Ready Speaker: Michelle Miles, Provider Liaisons, Michigan Department of Community Health.1 CEU Room: Glens 1 The ICD-10 Compliance Deadline is less than one year away.

Double Miniseminar: 6:30 8:30 pm CNS Acquired Stuttering Speaker: Richard M. Merson, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, William Beaumont Hospital to Advanced Room: Prairies 4-5 Central Nervous System Acquired Stuttering (CNS-AS) can be present in children and adults subsequent to brain injury, insult or trauma. This fluency disorder is different from secondary or early development stuttering

4 Thursday March 27 and Friday March 28 impairment (SSI) that typically develops at three to five years of age often with a familial history. A population of 42 CNS-AS patients was examined at Beaumont Hospital for history, fluency symptoms, and treatment effects and is presented here in contrast to SSI. Semantically stuttering is simply an empirical symptom of brain behavior until we associate it with a careful medical history, physiologic disorder, pattern of behavior, and treatment outcomes. This seminar will discuss the medical literature and examine in detail 42 patients with CNS-AS. We can develop important inferences about SSI by carefully examining the diagnosis & treatment outcomes of CNS-AS. Welcome Reception: 8:30 10:30 pm Arcadia Ballroom 1 Everyone Welcome!

6 Friday March 28 Afternoon continued Short Course: 1:30 4:45 pm Recognizing Early Signs of Change and Appreciating the Various Forms of Dementia: Getting Ahead of the Curve and Preparing Your Staff to Care More Effectively Invited Speaker: Teepa Snow, M.S., OTR/L, FAOTA, Positive Approach, LLC, Efland, North Carolina Teepa Snow is a dementia expert who trains and consults for agencies, facilities, and families. She is an Occupational Therapist who has extensive and varied work and teaching experience that provides her with a unique perspective of how the brain controls our body and our behaviors. Teepa Snow has clinical appointments with Duke University s School of Nursing and UNC-Chapel Hill s School of Medicine. She has 30 years of experience in geriatrics and is a Fellow of the American Occupational Therapy Association and has received local, statewide, and national recognition for her expertise in geriatrics, dementia care and programing, and staff training. Kathy Rigley-Rowell, M.A., CCC-SLP, Western Michigan University Room: Glens 1 Over the past 5-10 years significant progress has been made in differential diagnosis and in tailoring treatments and interventions to each type of dementia. Current understanding is that labeling someone as having dementia in the early stages of the condition is inadequate for best quality care management. This session is designed to provide information about the various forms of dementia. It highlights the importance of noticing early signs of changes in cognition and behavior that are NOT consistent with normal aging. Depression, delirium, and dementia are discussed and differences and connections are presented. The session provides specific and distinguishing characteristics of some of the more common forms of dementia including: Alzheimer s disease, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, and fronto-temporal dementias. Part of the session also focuses on how care and expectations may need to be changed for each condition as well as for those individuals with mixed picture dementia. Finally, the session will provide support for those providing care to be better advocates and partners for each type. Teepa Snow is presenting a class on Saturday morning: Demystifying Resistance and Refusals: Using Positive Approaches to Provide Support and Care That Works. The two classes are not sequential. 6 Short Course: 1:30 4:45 pm Differential Diagnosis and Treatment for Individuals Who Stutter Speakers: Jaime Hannan, M.S., CCC-SLP and Rob Reichhardt, M.A., CCC-SLP, both from Cincinnati Children s Hospital Medical Center This session will provide an overview of differential diagnosis and treatment for individuals who stutter preschool-age through adult. We will discuss Gregory s (1968, 1975, 2003) eleven principals of Basic Principle Problem Solving and how this framework can enhance the diagnostic and therapeutic process. A variety of diagnostic tools and therapy approaches will be discussed in depth. Short Course: 1:30 4:45 pm Social Pragmatic Language Intervention: From Games to Words Speakers: Colin A. Macpherson, M.A., CCC-SLP and Jenny R. Long, M.S., CCC-SLP, both from Mecosta Osceola Intermediate School District to Intermediate Room: Arcadia Ballroom 1 Children seen by speech-language pathologists frequently present as non-intentional or inactive communicators who use few communicative gestures and/or words. The Social Pragmatic Language Intervention model is based on: communicative intent; social relatedness; social pragmatic games; conversational and event histories; and parents as major change agents in their child s life. This course will introduce participants to a systematic intervention delivery process for children in a variety of social contexts including home and school. This process begins with the child s, parents and teacher s goals and intentions as the foundation of subsequent intervention strategies and events. A Case Study format with videotape examples will be used to demonstrate the model. Child outcome data from a variety of settings will be presented illustrating principles of evidence based practices.

7 Double Miniseminar: 1:30 3:30 pm Outside the Box Apps for SLPs (and Aligning Apps with Common Core) Invited Speaker: Sean J.

Light snacks will be provided. A morning session for Undergraduate Students is 10:00 11:30 am. Miniseminar: 2:30 3:30 pm Perceived Vocal Effort and Vocal Recovery Speaker: Eric J. Hunter, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Michigan State University.1 CEU Room: Prairies 6 Vocal fatigue has become a generic term for a condition in which increased effort or decreased perceptual quality occurs during phonation. It is possible that vocal fatigue is (at least occasionally) a symptom of a yet undiagnosed underlying problem, such as laryngopharyngeal reflux or glottal incompetence from a slight weakness of the vocal folds. Vocal fatigues may also be caused by poor vocal techniques or vocal overuse, causing a combination of laryngeal muscle fatigues and lamina propria fatigues (breakdown of extra cellular matrix from excessive vibration). In an attempt to quantify the relation between vocal fatigue and perceived vocal ability and effort was compared to accumulated voice using two datasets. First, the National Center for Voice and Speech vocal dose database was used, containing more than 8400 hours of observational data (57 teachers). Voice use data of male and female school teachers (spanning two weeks of observation) was compared to repeated perceptual ratings (average of every two hours) of vocal ability and vocal effort. Second, the post-vocal loading (2 hours) recovery of vocal ability and effort of 88 teachers were tracked over two days to find general vocal effort recovery curves. The vocal non-pathologic recovery trajectories of perceived vocal effort and ability appeared to have both a short-term and long-term process, similar to two aspects of dermal wound healing. By analyzing the result of these processes in conjunction with the vocal dose database, a vocal ability and effort model of exposure and recovery was developed. As this avenue of research is further explored, it may be possible to predict recovery of vocal ability following vocal loading, leading to actual safety limits for vocalization (i.e., optimal vocal vibration exposure and vocal rest periods).

Specifically, in this session, participants will learn how to utilize a combination of oral kinesthetic and hand cues, music, visuals, mnemonics, and comical stories to develop students letter sound associations while simultaneously addressing speech production, phonemic awareness, and word reading/spelling skills. The Part One 9 session provides the research rationale, including results of efficacy studies on Lively Letters in various settings. Information regarding alignment with the Response to Intervention model and the Common Core State Standards will be shared. Participants are then shown how to begin training letter sound associations (progressing through the major consonants and the short vowels). In the Part One, specific strategies are shared for improving sound blending, sound segmentation, and sound manipulation skills using manipulative tasks. Clinically proven strategies for sounding our (for reading and spelling) monosyllables through the CVC level will be presented. Participants will practice manipulative tracking tasks that combine the training of phonemic awareness and phonics. Videos will be shown throughout the session to enhance the learning experience. The strategies to be presented are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and used within all three tiers of Response-to-Intervention (RTI) Ideas for implementation within general education and intervention/ special education settings will be discussed.

Short Course: 1:30 4:45 pm Reading with TLC Condensed Full Training in Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See: Part Two Invited Speaker: Nancy Telian, M.S., CCC-SLP, Codirector, Reading with TLC, Author, Lively Letters/Adjunct faculty, MGH Institute of Health Professions Room: Arcadia Ballroom 1 Participants are required to have attended the Part One session (or a previous Reading with TLC Part One session) in order to attend this session. Completing this Part Two session will fully train the participant in the Reading with TLC programs, Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See. Those completing both sessions will receive the Reading with TLC Certificate of Completion at the end of the session. Receiving this certificate provides the participant with enough training to comfortably implement the program in its entirety, and provides additional professional opportunities, such as the ability to be listed online as a TLC tutor and to later attend a Reading with TLC Training of the Trainer seminar. Reading with TLC Condensed seminar is a popular session for SLPs and their professional colleagues who are interested in becoming trained in Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See, which train development of phonemic awareness, phonics, speech production, and irregular sight words. Specifically, in this session, participants will learn how to utilize a combination of oral kinesthetic and hand cues, music, visuals, mnemonics, and comical stories to develop students letter sound associations while simultaneously addressing speech production, phonemic awareness, word reading/spelling skills, and acquisition of semantically abstract and phonetically irregular sight words. In the Part Two session, strategies will be shared for training upper level letter sounds (silent e, vowel combinations, r-controlled vowels, soft c and g). Participants will learn how to train the ability to read and spell words with consonant blends, with an emphasis on preventing sequencing errors. Participants will practice these strategies in hands-on tasks during the session. Group and classroom lesson ideas will be shared, along with strategies for motivating resistant learners. Throughout the training, suggestions will be shared for addressing weak working memory and developing rapid naming skills that impact the ability to develop reading 12 automaticity and fluency. Strategies for decoding words with inflectional morphological endings will be shared as well as the syllable division rules for effective decoding and encoding of multisyllable words. Participants will also learn how to use visual mnemonics and their students phonics base to help them acquire abstract and phonetically irregular sight words. Videos will be shown throughout the session to enhance the learning experience. The strategies to be presented are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and used within all three tiers of Response to Intervention (RTI). Ideas for implementation within general education and intervention/ special education settings will be discussed. Throughout the training, participants are given practical ideas on how to integrate the Reading with TLC methods with reading programs already existing, and how to logistically implement the program within various school and clinical settings Nancy Telian is presenting a morning Short Course: Reading with TLC Condensed Full Training in Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See: Part One and participants must attend Part 1 to attend Part 2.
