Kristin Martinez and Teletherapy Discussion Part 3, Literacy and Dementia, Cameras in the Therapy Room, Reading Rates and Aphasia, and the Annie Glenn Award

Kristin Martinez and Teletherapy Discussion Part 3, Literacy and Dementia, Cameras in the Therapy Room, Reading Rates and Aphasia, and the Annie Glenn Award

November 20, 2019

The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7. Matt and Michelle are prepping for ASHA this week!  As this goes live, Michelle will be in the air and Matt will be driving through the foothills of Tennessee. Are you making your plans to see the live taping at ASHA? Head over to Xceptionaled.com for more information to see the crew live in Florida.  Matt is presenting on the Ethics of Podcasting and Michelle is hosting a live Speech Science Event.

 

Teletherapy looks to be the future of speech and language pathology. What is the best way to handle the increase and demands? Michelle sat down with Kristin Martinez from PresenceLearning for a 3 part interview diving into the nuts and bolts of Teletherapy. This week on part 3, they talk about discharge and answering all of your questions about teletherapy. Kristin Martinez is the head of Clinical Standards and Outreach at PresenceLearning.

    

Did you know there may be a link between literacy and dementia.  Recent research shows that literate patients or patients that are life long readers may have a less chance at cognitive decline and dementia.  How does literacy impact your ability to correctly identify cognitive decline.  How comfortable would you be with a camera in your therapy session?  Who should or shouldn’t access it?  A school district in Dallas wants cameras in every special education classroom. 

 

The reading rate of speakers may be impacting people with Aphasia.  A study looked at rates of 120, 150, and 180 words per minute to identify the appropriate speed.  Could this impact receptive language students in the classroom?  It is ASHA week, what are your plans?  Make sure you tag #SSPOD in all of your ASHA podcasts and visit the hosts live on the show floor.

Kristin Martinez and Teletherapy, Structural Changes in the Brain, PDPM and Dysphagia, Switches and Communication, and Stem Cell Grown Larynx

Kristin Martinez and Teletherapy, Structural Changes in the Brain, PDPM and Dysphagia, Switches and Communication, and Stem Cell Grown Larynx

November 17, 2019

The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7. Matt, Michael, and Michelle jump right into the topics this week as they prep the week before ASHA. Are you making your plans to see the live taping at ASHA? Head over to Xceptionaled.com for more information to see the crew live in Florida.

 

Teletherapy looks to be the future of speech and language pathology. What is the best way to handle the increase and demands? Michelle sat down with Kristin Martinez from PresenceLearning for a 3 part interview diving into the nuts and bolts of Teletherapy. This week on part 2, they discuss what therapy looks like and general questions about Teletherapy. Kristin Martinez is the head of Clinical Standards and Outreach at PresenceLearning.

    

Screen based media has risen many concerns in the realm of therapy and parenting.  The risks of increased ADHD or language deficits have always been a concern but now a study from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital shows structural differences caused by screen time.    PDPM is back in the news, again.  If your patient has a modified diet, you will get more funding.  What strains does this put on a therapist in a SNF?  Could there be more pressure to put someone on a modified diet and they don’t need it?

 

An SLP taught her dog to communicate using switches.  Matt dives into why he doesn’t like the way switches or buttons are used in therapy and the crew discuss better ways to use them with a purpose.  Science continues to push bar and some days it feels like science fiction versus science facts.  A group of scientists have grown a Larynx using a persons stem cells.  Lastly, Speech and Language Pathology is listed as a top paying job where you don’t have to work 40 hours, fact or fiction?

Evaluating in Teletherapy, Juvenile Detention and Special Education, Equine Therapy, Games and Vocabulary, and Push-In Therapy

Evaluating in Teletherapy, Juvenile Detention and Special Education, Equine Therapy, Games and Vocabulary, and Push-In Therapy

November 9, 2019

The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7.  Matt questions the ethical concerns of Spookily the Square Pumpkin due to watching Halloween Cartoons too much.  Michael is ramping up for the fall by increasing his pumpkin intake.  Michelle and family prepped for Halloween by having baby Speech Science dress as an Avocado.    Are you making your plans to see the live taping at ASHA?  Head over to Xceptionaled.com for more information to see the crew live in Florida. 

 

Teletherapy looks to be the future of speech and language pathology.  What is the best way to handle the increase and demands?  Michelle sat down with Kristin Martinez from PresenceLearning for a 3 part interview diving into the nuts and bolts of Teletherapy.  This week on part 1, they discuss the ways to orchestrate evaluations using Teletherapy.   Kristin Martinez is the head of Clinical Standards and Outreach at PresenceLearning.

    

Students with disabilities or who receive special education services are more at risk for Juvenile Detention.  Would an increase in early intervention help to lower the risk of students ending up here?    Equine Therapy is a new approach for speech and language therapy and other related services.  A study in Nebraska looks at its positive affects for students on the spectrum. 

 

Increases in vocabulary have shown an increase in language growth and reading comprehension, but could we grow vocabulary through games alone?  A recent student looked at this exact topic and the games through Vocabulary. Com.  There are multiple ways to see your students in the school setting and Push-In may be the most desirable.  However, only half of studied SLPs serve less than 25% of their students in a push-in model.

Low Initiation and Autism, The Virginia Bridge Project, Vocabulary Effects, and Best Therapy Games

November 3, 2019

This week Michelle is traveling and Matt and Michael are flying solo.  Michael has been working closely with the school based SLPs and participating in school visits for his private clinic patients.  Michael talks about the hurdles he comes across as being the outside SLP.  Matt was wrapping up his progress reports and balancing the paperwork with the amount of therapy time while on the personal side of watching his youngest turn 3. 

   

How important is joint attention?  A new study looks at the link between a lack of joint attention and a future diagnosis of ASD.  The Virginia Bridge project helps students with special education needs get ready to thrive in the classroom. 

 

How often do you target vocabulary during your therapy sessions?  A recent study looked at the important of vocabulary and improving language skills.  Lastly, the best games to use during therapy are the ones that engage the students the most.  A look at the best games for therapy via Play On Words.

Lyra App, ABA and SLPs, Deafening Cinemas, Special Education Funding, and Tongue Strength and Articulation

Lyra App, ABA and SLPs, Deafening Cinemas, Special Education Funding, and Tongue Strength and Articulation

October 25, 2019

Michael returns to the show after traveling the country helping the non-profit the Focus Foundation.  Michelle celebrates her birthday this past week and continues to adjust to motherhood and her career.  Matt used his extended weekend from Columbus Day or Indigenous Peoples Day to complete his progress reports. 

 

If you had a family member that needed a way to communicate, what would you do?  On today’s episode March Rogers sits down and talks with Matt to discuss the way Lyra was designed, a symbol to speech app he and a team developed.  He and Cat Noone talk about the process of developing the app, watching March’s daughter use it, and the future to use Lyra with others.    

    

SLPs and ABA have been at odds with each other over the scope of their fields.  Recently ASHA submitted a letter to Arizona asking that a line about Communication be removed from licensure pertaining to ABAs.  How loud is too loud?  Hugh Grant recently spoke out that movies have gotten too loud, but cinemas say that they keep the sound below 85 dB.  How loud is too loud and how long can you sustain it? 

 

Funding in every state is strained.  In Pennsylvania, special education classes have grown larger than expected.  This rise in student population means that the current funding strategy is wrong.  Lastly, what is the link between tongue strength and articulation?  A new article shows the link or lack there of between tongue strength and articulation.
