Treatment and Carryover of Persistent Speech Errors
Presented by Julie J. Hoffmann, MA, CC-SLP

There are certain articulation errors that can be very difficult to remediate for some clients. Whether these clients have an articulation disorder, a phonological disorder, childhood apraxia of speech, dysarthria or repaired cleft lip/palate, all of the techniques discussed in this presentation will be helpful. Often, on top of these errors, children who have been in therapy for a long time may present burn-out, lack of motivation and may be reluctant to continue in therapy. This workshop will supply you with many ideas and creative ways to facilitate challenging sounds and intelligibility issues.

At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to identify several difficult to remediate speech errors and issues related to speech intelligibility, identify treatment strategies and facilitation methods to help clients acquire correct “R” and “S” productions and decrease lateral and frontal lisps, apply several carryover techniques for children who lack self-monitoring of learned articulation skills in therapy.

Julie Hoffmann, MA, CCC-SLP, specializes in children with severe speech sound disorders and childhood apraxia of speech. She has been on the faculty at Saint Louis University since 1994 and is currently an assistant professor. Julie has a private practice in Columbia, Illinois, specializing in treating children with severe speech and language disorders. She has a passion for teaching and working with challenging clients and their families.

Auditory Processing Disorders

Presented by Sarah Zlomke, AuD, CCC-A

Auditory processing disorder (APD) can be reliably tested for and treatment is very effective. This workshop will describe APD and the evidence supporting it. A detailed review of APD tests and scoring will be presented including how to evaluate APD when coexisting conditions such as attention deficit disorder and autism are present. Therapy procedures will be described and demonstrated. Finally, data from more than 650 evaluations and 2,500 therapy sessions will be analyzed.

At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to describe three risk factors for APD, identify and describe the three ways to differentiate APD from other learning disorders such as ADHD, autism and dyslexia, and list one therapy tool for each of the four categories of APD in the Buffalo Model.

Sarah Zlomke, AuD, CCC-A, earned her bachelor’s degree in communication sciences and disorders from Saint Louis University and her doctorate degree in audiology from Washington University School of Medicine. She currently works at Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City’s Midwest Ear Institute. She specializes in cochlear implants and APDs.
