speech pathology course instruction

Sharon Cameron, Harvey Dillon
BACKGROUND: The LiSN & Learn auditory training software was developed specifically to improve binaural processing skills in children with suspected central auditory processing disorder who were diagnosed as having a spatial processing disorder (SPD). SPD is defined here as a condition whereby individuals are deficient in their ability to use binaural cues to selectively attend to sounds arriving from one direction while simultaneously suppressing sounds arriving from another. As a result, children with SPD have difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments, such as in the classroom...

PURPOSE: This article describes a connection between service learning and American Sign Language (ASL) instruction. The Deaf community served as communication partners for university students, enabling them to use language skills in a natural setting. METHOD: The rationale and implementation of pairing ASL with service learning are presented. A review of one study provides information about student perceptions of service learning, and a second study presents evidence about the development of ASL skills through a service learning experience...

University students in speech-language pathology and nursing were involved in a community service learning project with residents of a long-term care facility who had dementia. Nursing students were asked to interact and converse with residents to the best of their ability (control group, n = 28). Speech-language pathology students were instructed to design a personalized, multi-modality "connection kit" for residents based on the tenets of cognitive linguistic stimulation and facilitative styles of interaction, which were included within course content (experimental group, n = 25)...

PURPOSE: To describe the instructional strategies reported for multicultural/multilingual issues (MMI) education at programs in speech-language pathology and audiology and the perceived ease and effectiveness of doing so. METHOD: A 49-item questionnaire elicited anonymous responses from administrators, faculty, and teaching clinical supervisors at educational programs accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association in the United States. The data were provided by 731 respondents from 79...

BACKGROUND: Formal training in dealing with death and dying issues is not a standard content area in communication sciences and disorders programmes' curricula. At the same time, it cannot be presumed that pre-professional students' personal background equips them to deal with these issues. AIM: To investigate the perceptions of pre-professional speech-language pathology and audiology students' need for formal training in death and dying issues. METHODS & PROCEDURES: Participants were 230 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in communication sciences and disorders courses in a southern, metropolitan university, in the USA...

An interactive web-based system was designed to facilitate communication between nonspecialist speech pathologists who provide therapy for individuals with speech disorders associated with cleft palate or craniofacial anomalies and specialist speech pathologists who provide physiologically based assessments of speech production. The web site includes instructional presentations, streaming video clips of endoscopic examinations, and exchange of information about the nature of therapy as recommended by the specialist and as provided by the nonspecialist...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of standardized patients (SPs) with aphasia to teach interpersonal and communication skills to new graduate student-clinicians in Speech-Language Pathology, and to test those skills via serial Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs). This study had three phases: (1) clinical teaching using SPs, (2) mid-term evaluation via a single case OSCE, and (3) end-of-term evaluation via a multi-case OSCE. These phases were integrated with classroom teaching and testing components over a 16-week academic semester...

Otitis media with effusion (OME) is a process, which goes on by inner side of intact tympanic membrane. Oligosymptomatic and deceitful course is characteristics for this disease. Fluid filling middle ear structures causes long-lasting hypoacusis. Chronic consequences of the OME are morphologic changes within the middle ear, especially in the tense part of the tympanic membrane, causing strengthened conductive hypoacusis. The OME morbidity peak falls in 3-6 year of life, which is the period of the most intense development of the child and speech creation...

Great strides have been made in the past year in uncovering the pathogenesis of AIDS/HIV, in administering certain drugs to retard the course of AIDS/HIV, in allaying the concerns of the general public, and in dispelling the many myths regarding AIDS/HIV. ASHA's Committee on Quality Assurance has provided this update as a result of obtaining the most current information from CDC and related AIDS/HIV literature. Human service providers are not at high risk of getting AIDS/HIV as a result of their work with clients, even if they regularly care for persons with AIDS/HIV (American College Health Association Task Force on AIDS, 1987)...

Electroglottographic (EGG) and acoustic records from 10 normal men prolonging the vowel /a/ at 60-68 dB, 70-78 dB, and 80-88 dB SPL were obtained. "Contact quotient" (EGG duty cycle) was shown to vary directly with vocal SPL. The mean contact quotient was 0.57 (SD = 0.07) and varied on the order of 1% over the course of a given phonation. "Contact index", a metric of EGG symmetry, also tended to vary with SPL. Consistent with previous qualitative descriptions of EGG morphology in modal register voice, the contact index averaged -0...
