High definition fiber tracking and semantic feature analysis treatment for naming in aphasia

Live Broadcast: Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 1:00pm EST

Register now!

This course provides an overview of evidence-based treatment for word retrieval in aphasia. We will review the white matter pathways and their connectivity and discuss evidence supporting their impact on language performance. Dr. Hula will also describe evidence concerning behavioral predictors for treatment related changes in naming items. This webinar is appropriate for SLPs of all levels of experience with aphasia as well as graduate students.

Learner outcomes:

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to describe: 

  1. The effects of intensive semantic feature analysis treatment for naming in terms of outcomes on trained items, untrained semantically related items, overall aphasia severity, and patient-reported functioning;
  2. The white matter pathways proposed to underlie the dorsal and ventral processing streams, respectively, and how their connectivity was related to language performance and treatment-related change in the present study; and
  3. Behavioral predictors of treatment-related change in trained and untrained naming items.

Speaker:

William Hula, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is a speech pathologist in the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare Audiology and Speech Pathology Service and Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center, and an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Communication Science and Disorders at the University of Pittsburgh.  He has active research projects funded by both VA RR&D and NIH/NIDCD.  His research interests include measurement of language performance and patient-reported functioning in aphasia, aphasia treatment, and brain-behavior relationships in language and aphasia.

Click here to order the archived webinar

This webinar is designed to provide an overview of the general types of therapy approaches available for use in the treatment of acquired apraxia of speech (AOS). The ANCDS AOS practice guidelines will be briefly reviewed and the recent systematic review that updated the guidelines will be discussed. The supporting evidence for various treatment approaches will be described. Current trends and advances in AOS management will also be addressed, with an emphasis on possible clinical application.

Learner outcomes:

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and locate published apraxia of speech (AOS) treatment guidelines and systematic reviews.
  • Describe two approaches to AOS treatment.
  • Describe the general level of existing AOS treatment evidence.
