Master Class Series, 13.5-hours

Course Description

Legally Defensible IEPs
This session presented the basis and components for an approach that enables SLPs to become highly credible when reporting their findings and recommendations during individualized education plan meetings. Components of legally defensible documentation and report writing was addressed.
ADHD
Inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are the most common presenting behavioral manifestations in at-risk school-aged children.  This presentation discusses the causes of hyperactivity, overactivity, and inattentiveness in children beyond the ADHD diagnosis.  It addresses a select variety of conditions which may mimic symptoms, including medical diagnoses, traumatic brain injury, language and literacy disorders, acquired genetic disorders, as well as psychiatric disorders with similar symptomology. Recommendations related to which standardized and clinical assessment batteries can be used for determination of language related-deficits are presented.  Finally, treatment options, accommodations, modifications and compensatory strategies to improve affected performance in social and academic settings, are also provided.
Central Auditory Processing
This course presented an overview of assessment and management of central auditory processing disorders  in children. Interdisciplinary aspects of working with school-age children was highlighted.
Sensory Processing Disorder
Treatment of sensory integration is widely used but recommendation though research is limited.  This presentation will focus on the current evidence that is available, discuss the need for additional research, and explain how to cautiously apply the current evidence to practice.
