4th Annual Speech-Language Pathology Symposium
“Two Hot Topics in One Day: The Evidence Supporting CAPD and Counseling"
Friday, March 22, 2013
Power Center Ballroom @ Duquesne University
Kris English, Ph.D. Kris English earned her doctorate from San Diego State - Claremont Graduate University in California, and is a professor at the University of Akron. She has authored, co-authored or edited 8 books and 21 chapters, and has presented over 200 workshops and papers in the US, Canada, and Europe, primarily on the topic of counseling. She recently completed 5 years of service as a Board member for the American Academy of Audiology, including a term as President in 2009 - 2010.
Part I: Auditory processing disorders (APD) are often misunderstood or unclearly defined. We will explore auditory processing disorders from a neurological perspective across the lifespan, and review the current evidence available regarding treatment efficacy. Clinic-ready strategies will be shared.
Part II: Patients decide to trust us when they perceive that we are technically competent, put patient welfare first, and possess interpersonal competence. This presentation will focus on the third criteria with a review of interpersonal competencies (that is, counseling strategies) designed for speech-language pathologists and audiologists. Research validating counseling as an evidence-based practice will be included.
At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
1. Differentiate between auditory processing and receptive language problems.
2. Describe the current evidence available on APD treatment.
3. Describe the link between communication skills, trust, and the patient adherence to clinician recommendations.
