# e118   Auditory Processing Disorders, Dyslexia and Apraxia: Assessments and Evidence-Based Interventions

by Martha Burns, PhD, CCC-SLP

0.2 CEUs

$ 39.00

This eCourse reviews the new science, assessments and evidence-based interventions for auditory processing disorders, dyslexia and childhood apraxia of speech. The course begins with a review of current neuroscience research on the underlying causes of APD, dyslexia and CAS. Several new neuroimaging studies will be highlighted including recent dyslexia research from the Shaywitz team at Yale and research on Prompt for CAS. The course then reviews available assessment tools and evidence-based interventions. Offered for 0.2 ASHA CEUs – 2 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: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the human cortical maps for phonological processing.
  2. Identify behavioral characteristics of auditory processing disorders.
  3. Distinguish auditory processing disorders from attentional disorders.
  4. Utilize evidence-based bottom-up and top-down interventions for APD.
  5. Describe the human cerebral connections identified as critical for reading.
  6. Identify the differing cerebral connection patterns associated with dyslexia.
  7. Utilize evidence-based interventions for struggling readers and individuals with dyslexia.
  8. Describe the human cortical regions that distinguish childhood apraxia of speech.
  9. Reliably diagnose CAS.
  10. Utilize evidence-based interventions for CAS.

Intended Audience

  • SLP

This program is offered for 0.2 CEUs (Intermediate level; Professional area).

Offered for 2 CEEs. Northern Speech Services’ continuing education activities are eligible for Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC) Continuing Education Equivalents (CEEs) in speech-language pathology. An activity’s eligibility for CEEs does not imply SAC’s endorsement of its content or any associated products or procedures.

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.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.

ASHA CE Registry:  During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.

ASHA CEUS: Attendees must meet at least one of the following conditions in order to be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs:

  • Current ASHA Member
  • ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) Holder
  • Licensed by a state or provincial regulatory agency to practice speech-language pathology (SLP) or audiology

"I liked the information on treatments available that have been proven to work. The specific topics of dyslexia and ADD were most helpful to me." - J.J., 8/30/2016

"Excellent background information and practical application. I have many students diagnosed with apraxia so this was very informative." - A.F., 8/30/2016

"I found the assessment and remediation data for each of the disorders beneficial and relevant. I liked the evidence-based data on the value of the SLP for a struggling student's academic success. Practical and evidence-based treatment approaches!!" - T.S., 8/30/2016

"I liked that it did not assume I remembered everything about brain anatomy, but reviewed it in a non-condescending manner." - C.J., 8/30/2016

"I really loved receiving extensive information on how to notice differences between what often constitutes ADHD vs. APD. The information on diagnosis and treatment of APD was especially helpful. I loved the pattern of the presentation and the fact that studies were listed in a way that I will be able to access them further when doing treatment or providing a basis to clients for why I'm choosing a particular program." - K.D., 8/23/2016

"I liked how the neuroscience was connected to specific programs of intervention. Reviewing the research was also helpful." - S.Q., 8/23/2016

"I enjoyed Dr. Burns' teaching style and her voice. She had wonderful pictures of the brain and a great power point loaded with usable information - especially the language to literacy connection." - K.B., 8/7/2016

"I appreciated understanding where in the brain the breakdown occurs. However, I thought this course was going to actually focus on interventions/strategies to use that were in therapy and not just give list approaches and the evidence that proves they work." - D.W., 7/28/2016

"I found the section on apraxia of speech and the section of reading and how it can be impacted at a young age and why students with a language disorder have more difficult time learning." - C.L., 7/25/2016

"The discussion about the difference between ADHD (non-hyperactive) and auditory processing deficits was most helpful." - S.P., 6/20/2016

"I found the review of evidence based interventions for each of the areas discussed - CAPD, dyslexia, and apraxia - most beneficial. I especially liked the information on dyslexia b/c I had not had a training course over this area before." - T.J., 5/25/2016

"Learning how Prompt changes the neurological makeup of the brain was really valuable. I liked the review of anatomy and physiology." - N.D., 4/3/2016

"I appreciated the discussion on apraxia. I like that the course discussed the neuroscience behind auditory processing disorders." - E.R., 3/4/2016

"I liked the studies and visuals.  The discussion on Apraxia was most beneficial." - K.A., 2/16/2016

"The interventions discussed were very helpful." - B.I., 2/16/2016

"I appreciated the topic of brain mapping. I thought there would be more time spent on apraxia of speech." - C.C., 2/5/2016

"The section regarding CAS was really useful." - S.F., 2/5/2016

"I liked the speakers depth of knowledge. I appreciated the evidence-based approaches." - K.G., 1/28/2016

"Learning which assessments best identify the disorder I'm looking at along with therapy techniques was very beneficial." - S.H., 1/17/2016

"I found the Apraxia Treatment program breakdown most valuable." - C.D., 1/1/2016
