Interventions For Neurogenic Communication Disorders

# e76   Interventions For Neurogenic Communication Disorders

by multiple expert presenters

0.9 CEUs

$ 129.00

This online course focuses on best practice for developing functional communication skills for persons with speech and language deficits related to:

  • Right hemisphere damage,
  • TBI,
  • Language/cognitive loss related to dementia (including Alzheimer's dementia), and
  • Aphasia.

While pragmatics will be the main focus, participants will also be given a rationale to support each intervention. Included is a differential diagnosis between the dementias.

The material presented provides participants with a clear understanding of the variables (memory systems, type of stimuli, complexity of stimuli) that need to be manipulated during the treatment process to ensure functional outcomes. Participants will also learn how proper management of these variables can reduce patient stress and fatigue during a treatment session.  In addition, this program will identify the one intervention for persons with dementia that has clinical research to support it. Offered for 0.9 ASHA CEUs – 9 contact hours.

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: Audio with downloadable handout. Audio can be streamed online or downloaded as mp3 files. Course was recorded in front of a live seminar audience. 

At audio eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

1. State a problematic behavior associated with frontal lobe damage that needs to be addressed in treatment planning for patients with TBI.

2. State an evidence-based intervention for problems in task initiation for patients with TBI.

3. State a unique characteristic of a client presenting with Alzheimer's disease.

4. State an evidence-based intervention for vascular dementia.

5. Describe two treatments for aprosodia.

6. List three types of treatment for visuospatial neglect.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order to 
receive a certificate of completion.

I feel I can not only offer my patients more sound and evidence based treatments but I can also be a more competent advocate for those whose impairments are not so easily defined or addressed by other medical professionals.
