This presentation will examine the underlying processes, possible breakdowns, assessment, and interventions in the context of what the listener faces in everyday situations, recognizing the intertwining of various processes, such as auditory processing, cognition, and language. The goal is to provide practical information that can assist professionals in addressing the needs of individuals struggling to process and retain spoken-language information. Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in a
Q & A session whereby they will be able to pose questions concerning the presentation or any clients they may serve.
Describe the specific impact of deficits in the various processes engaged in spoken-language processing and how such deficits can be manifested in everyday life.
Describe an approach to developing a comprehensive test battery that, in turn, can be used to determine the specific spoken-language processing deficits present.
Categorize the three types of interventional strategies that can be implemented with individuals with spoken-language processing deficits, as well as provide examples within each category.
Audiologists, general practitioners (including ENTs and PEDS), speech-language pathologists, psychologists, special
education teachers, general education teachers, occupational therapists, students, and parents.
