2015 CASLPM EDUCATIONALCONFERENCE MARCH 18TH & 19TH, 2015 HILTON WINNIPEG AIRPORT SUITES 1800 WELLINGTON AVENUE, WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, R3H 1B2 SCHEDULE & SYNOPSIS Wednesday March 18th , 2015 Registration: 7:45 – 8:30 am AM Session: 8:30 am – 12:00 pm Ms. Kim Barthel, BMR, OT(R): Dr. Derek J. Stiles, Ph.D. Labyrinth Journeys Boston Children’s Hospital Relationship – The Heart of Therapy Across the Lifespan Access: Promoting social cognition in children with hearing loss Join Kim for this one – day workshop that provides clinicians with an understanding of the impact of relationship on the developing brain and how therapeutic relationship can set the stage for learning and enhance neuroplasticity that is essential for therapy across the lifespan. Lunch Break: 12:00 – 1:00 pm Lunch Included with Registration (Wednesday Only) This workshop will translate theory into practical strategies that effect everyday clinical practice. Learners will develop a preliminary understanding of the neurobiology of attachment and social connection which is at the heart of the need and desire for communication. This presentation is of interest to speech – language pathologists, audiologists, health care professionals, educators, parents, and care givers. PM Session: 1:00 – 4:00 pm Auditory experience begins before birth. Typically developing fetuses become sensitive to sound in the second trimester. Specific behavioral responses to certain types of auditory stimuli are recognizable from birth. The mutually-occurring behaviors and responses of both infant and parent guide the infant’s social development. Non-linguistic and linguistic cues play varying roles over time. This development can be interrupted by the presence of hearing loss. Newborn hearing screening has changed the pattern of identification of hearing loss, allowing for much earlier intervention for children with congenital losses. Professionals working with children with hearing loss should consider the ramifications of the diagnosis on early social development and develop strategies for discussions with parents. Learning objectives Participants will be able to • describe the pre- and post-natal development of the auditory system • discuss the evidence for social cognition in infancy • compare Piagettian and Vygotskyan frameworks of child development • generate hypotheses on the impact of hearing loss on social cognition • discuss the impact of their clinical care on children’s social development Agenda Block 1 (08:30 – 09:45): Block 2 (10:00 – 12:00): Block 3 (13:00 – 14:15): Block 4 (14:30 – 16:00): Early auditory development Early social development Effects of hearing loss What we can do This presentation is of interest to audiologists, speech – language pathologists, health – care professionals, educators, parents and care - givers. Thursday March 19th, 2015 AM Session: 8:30 am – 12:00 pm Lunch Break: 12:00 – 1:00 pm On Your Own Ms. Kim Barthel, BMR, OT(R): Dr. Lendra Friesen, Ph.D., CCC-A Labyrinth Journeys University of Connecticut Connections – The Neurobiology of Behaviour: Looking Beyond Diagnostic Labels The Aging Auditory System This one – day workshop will highlight the neurobiology of developmental diagnosis in children such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder and Genetic Disorders, providing clinicians with an understanding of why our clients do what they do and how to develop practical tools for intervention. Learners will develop an understanding of attunement skills and sensory processing for the development of self – regulation. This presentation is of interest to speech – language pathologists, audiologists, health care professionals, educators, parents, and care givers. PM Session: 1:00 – 4:00 pm Hearing loss is the fastest growing, and one of the most prevalent, chronic conditions facing Canadians today. While hearing loss has many causes, age-related (presbycusis) and noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) are the two most common types. According to Statistics Canada, more than one million adults across the country reported having a hearing-related disability, a number more than 50% greater than the number of people reporting problems with their eyesight. The need to treat hearing loss in some manner is required in order to reduce communication problems that can lead to social isolation, depression, and a reduced quality of life. Clinical professionals (audiologists, speech language pathologists, as well as others) are left with the task of trying to determine methods to aid individuals with hearing loss, many of whom are elderly. In aging individuals, there are many intertwined factors that need to be addressed in the process to help the individual better communicate and feel less isolated. Some of these include the examination of perception, cognition, and some form of auditory rehabilitation. This series of talks will examine these areas and provide examples of different methods that can be applied clinically. This presentation is of interest to audiologists, speech – language pathologists, health – care professionals, educators, parents and care - givers. Note: Printed copies of session handouts will NOT be provided at the conference site. Access session handouts at: www.caslpm.ca ABOUT THE SPEAKERS Ms. Kim Barthel, BMR, OT(R): Labyrinth Journeys Kim integrates the science of occupational therapy and neurobiology with cutting edge practice to support the conscious evolution of the human spirit. With 30 years of experience in the field of occupational therapy, Kim’s approach to serving clients is visionary and eclectic yet grounded and easy to integrate into your daily practice. Sensory processing, the neurobiology of attachment and attunement are at the core of Kim’s practice, writing, and teaching: “We have come to understand that our early childhood relationships with our core parent or caregiver (attachments) shape our brain patterns and our behaviours. There are three different kinds of “attachment” strategies, which have a significant effect upon how resilient we can be in the face of future trauma. These three ways that kids learn to cope with the primary attachment figures in their lives exist as strategies to feel comfortable and secure. Attachment theory is the study of these strategies, how they come to be, and the implications on the individual across the lifespan.” Kim is a world-renowned teacher and therapist, most active in the fields of relational trauma, sensory processing, and brain research. Her revolutionary process reinforces the importance of relationship as the basis in communication and therapy; she blends the art of intuitive inquiry with progressive developments in neuroscience. Dr. Derek J. Stiles, Ph.D. Boston Children’s Hospital Derek J. Stiles is Director of Diagnostic Audiology at Boston Children’s Hospital where he is privileged to manage a team of 30 audiologists working across 5 locations. He received his PhD degree from University of Iowa in 2010, after which he worked as an assistant professor at Rush University. He is interested in the effects of aided speech audibility on language outcomes in children who use hearing aids. Dr. Derek J. Stiles was recently honored to give the Bamford Plenary Lecture at the British Academy of Audiology in 2014. Dr. Lendra Friesen, Ph.D., CCC-A University of Connecticut Lendra obtained her BSc at Brandon University in Basic Sciences, and then obtained a post-Baccalaureate in Speech Pathology at University of North Dakota. She received her MS degree in Audiology at Utah State University and obtained her Audiology certification from House Ear Institute in Los Angeles where afterwards, she worked as a research Audiologist for 5 years examining speech understanding in individuals having cochlear implants. Lendra obtained her Ph.D. in Hearing Science from the University of Washington in Seattle with Dr. Kelly Tremblay, where she examined the brain’s response to speech sounds in individuals with normal hearing, with cochlear implants, and with hearing aids. While working with Dr. Tremblay, she also explored the effects of aging and auditory training on perception and the brain’s response. Dr. Friesen moved to Toronto where she worked at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and was an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto. There she continued to examine cues related to speech, music and the brain’s responses to these sounds in younger normal hearing, and cochlear implant groups, as well as in the aging population. Dr. Lendra Friesen now is a faculty member at the University of Connecticut where she continues her research in all of these areas in the hopes of finding methods to improve speech and music perception.
