1. Case Study 1: Aphasia Treatment
The first chapter of this course follows a case study involving aphasia treatment. Dr. Dickey describes how to access the ANCDS treatment tables, and shows participants how to locate relevant treatment articles given this specific case.
2. Case Study 2: Swallowing Treatment
The second chapter of this course follows a dysphagia treatment case. Dr. Dickey shows the participant how to access ASHA evidence-based treatment tables, and how to strategize in choosing treatment evidence (levels of evidence) in the case described.
3. Case Study 3: Bilingual Child
The final case study of this course describes the case of a bilingual child. Dr. Dickey describes resources for working with clients of diverse backgrounds, and explores strategies for working with clients and populations for whom standardized assessment and treatment resources are not available.
Dr. Dickey discusses the cases above with a panel of practicing SLPs, and expands the conversation around applying literature to their experiences.
