Trauma Informed Care and Parkinson’s Disease and Dysphagia

June 7, 2021

This week Michael has taken the week off but Speech Science is lucky to have Ruchi Kapila step in as a cohost.  Ruchi is the Co-Creater and Co-Host of The Hyndsyte Project Podcast.  Michelle continues to re-pack for her move back to the state of Texas!  Ruchi just returned from presenting at the Northwest Art and Science of the Performing Voice Conference and is looking forward to the next few weeks of being in Texas.  Matt finished at the school district for the summer and took his boys camping over the weekend.    

The crew discuss the need to address trauma and the return to in person therapy and the affect medication may have on dysphagia and patients with Parkinson’s Disease.  The Informed SLP looks at recommendations for Oral Care with patients with Parkinson’s Disease.  The shoutout this week goes to MarissaMM and other grad students who have recently passed their Praxis and are preparing for the world of being a CF.  The Due Process asks the crew if they would be okay with wearing identification on their name badge identifying if they have received the vaccine or not.     

The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7 with a new website, www.discord.speechsciencepodcast.com.

SSPOD Shoutout: Do you know an SLP who deserves a digital fist bump or shout-out?  We want to know your #SSPODSHOUTOUT, which is recognition for someone doing something awesome somewhere. 

SSPOD Due Process: Your opportunity to message us about a problem in your area that you would like us to talk about, use the #SSPODDUEPROCESS. 

Topic #1:  As the world of therapy continues to move to in person, the crew discuss the importance of addressing and acknowledging the unspoken trauma that our clients and students have been through. 

Topic #2: A recent student looked at the impact medications may have on dysphagia in patients with Parkinson’s Disease.  Medication may lead to poorer oral health conditions and when paired with poor self-recognition of dysphagia symptoms may be putting our patients at risk. 

        

The Informed SLP: You’re seeing a patient with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) who’s complaining of difficulty swallowing. Your exam reveals that his overall oral health is in need of some attention. We know the state of our mouths has a lot to do with how we chew and swallow. Maybe this is contributing to his difficulty swallowing?

What is the SLP Role in Executive Functioning and the Cup of Council Podcast

What is the SLP Role in Executive Functioning and the Cup of Council Podcast

May 18, 2021

This week Michelle is unable to join the crew.  Michael recounts his week of finally getting back to golfing and the role of expanding his private practice.  Matt talks about the immediate gratification of doing yard work.   

Matt and Michael take a deep dive into the role SLPs have in executive functioning and why we should be taking the lead role.  Matt had an opportunity to sit down with the hosts of the Cup of Council podcast.  The Council talks about their journey to podcasting and how it affected them as friends and therapists.  The Informed SLP tackles the importance of honor the risk and well-being balance of our patients and dysphagia.  The shoutout this week goes to a young man from FGCU for creating a new AAC program.  The Due Process asks the crew if they would take a job that had more money or a smaller caseload.   

The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7 with a new website, www.discord.speechsciencepodcast.com.

SSPOD Shoutout: Do you know an SLP who deserves a digital fist bump or shout-out?  We want to know your #SSPODSHOUTOUT, which is recognition for someone doing something awesome somewhere. 

SSPOD Due Process: Your opportunity to message us about a problem in your area that you would like us to talk about, use the #SSPODDUEPROCESS. 

Topic #1:  What is executive functioning?  Are you familiar with inner language?  Executive functioning and inner language may be related and may explain why SLPs should be taking the lead of executive functioning therapy. 

Interview:  The Cup of Council podcast stopped by to talk about the process of creating a new podcast, its effect on them as therapists, and how it made their friendships even strong.          

The Informed SLP: We know that dysphagia is more than just swallowing to nursing home residents but what about those that discharge to the community? Diet adherence for community-dwelling adults with dysphagia is even more nuanced.

ASHA Spotlight: It is Better Hearing and Speech Month.  On ASHA’s website, they have free resources for therapists promoting BHSM.
