The 2021 Lineup
Dr. Brielle Stark
Click here for ASHA CEU and speaker information. Discourse analysis is commonly used to assess more naturalistic language ability in people with aphasia. But there are several different discourse types, and each taxes the language system in different ways. So which discourse outcome measures are best?

We will discuss 75 SLPs serving 294 children with DLD who completed weekly therapy logs detailing everything from goals to service delivery. So let's discuss key findings on what relates to children’s outcomes as well as strategies SLPs can implement immediately after the episode.
Dr. Pei-Fang Hung

Dr. Jayne Brandel
Dr. Lesley Sylvan and Francine DeMarco
Due process, mediation, supreme court cases… these are not the words that bring joy to an SLP but dealing with litigious cases is an important part of the work of school-based SLPs. This session will discuss what SLPs need to know about key supreme court cases related to special education.
Dr. Kelly Farquharson
Dr. Farquharson will discuss the role of phonological representations as they relate to the development of literacy skills for children with speech sound disorders and dyslexia. From theory to practice!
Dr. Ben Munson
Spoken language conveys multiple messages simultaneously. In addition to conveying a 'regular' linguistic message, utterances convey information about the people who produce them. This includes information about their identity (are they older, gay, and liberal [like me]?), and their state of mind (are they angry? what is their attitude toward the topic being discussed?). Part of learning language means learning how to convey these different pieces of social information.
