Speech-Language Pathologist:

From Tracts to Treatment

 

(0.95 ASHA CEUs)

Presented by: Anna Fink Swindle, CCC-SLP, CBIS

The kind and brilliant Anna Swindle is hosting an eight-hour course dedicated to neurology and the SLP- from neural tracts to noteworthy treatment

It is a recorded course, so you can watch it any time you want!

If you consider yourself to be a neuro-nerd (or you desire to be!) then this is the perfect course for you if you encounter anything related to brain function in your clinical practice.

What You’ll Learn:

E

Neuroanatomy relevant to SLPs

E

Key circulatory structures of the nervous system

E

Neuro diagnostic tools and assessment considerations specific to speech-language pathology

E

Cognitive-linguistic treatment approaches

E

How to apply anatomy and site of lesion to symptoms and treatment planning.

How your clinical practice will change:

E

Know what to look for on neuroimaging- and comprehend it

E

Efficiently navigate neuro diagnostic tools and how they directly relate to your assessment and treatment planning.

E

Build better treatment roadmaps based on lesion location and expected symptoms.

E

Understand how the nervous system applies to your clinical practice

E

Confidently develop appropriate cognitive-linguistic treatment plans.

E

BONUS– boost your opportunities to impress the neurologists/neuropsychologists and earn more respect.

Why we’re honored to have Anna teach us this course:

Anna’s passion for neurology and how SLPs can improve the course of treatment is like a ripple effect across the continuum of healthcare.

Not only is she a certified brain injury specialist (CBIS), but she also carries a certificate in neuroscience through Duke University.

Beyond the certificates, Anna has in-depth experience working with acquired and traumatic brain injury, stroke, tumor resection, and progressive neurological diseases. Her career path has led her to work closely with neurologists in an Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) clinic as well as inpatient rehab.

Oh, and her critical thinking skills are mesmerizing (and life altering)…

“I always ask why. Why am I seeing what I’m seeing? When you think about the whole person and all of the little things that go into it- these million little branches that form one big picture and a solid game plan

…it changes everything.”

Seriously.

Here are two e-mails she received

from her physician colleagues at work:

What’s so unique about this course?

It’s 50% objective information, 50% real-world clinical application.

That’s 4 hours of in-depth learning about neurology as it relates to SLPs.

And 4 hours of case studies and putting the puzzle pieces together in real-life scenarios.

“It’s not a general neuro course where you get info that’s not applicable.

It’s the specifics of what we need as SLPs and applying the information clinically in case studies.”

– Anna Swindle, MA, CCC-SLP, CBIS

Unlike what you get from textbooks and shorter webinars, this will offer a beautiful marriage between literature and real life in-the-trenches applicability.

Prepare to grow your clinical skills in ways you may have never thought possible…

 

…or, at least, in ways that will transform your patients’ lives.
