Location: Citrus Ballroom
Speaker: Ashlen Thomason, Ph.D, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist, Arkansas Children’s Hospital
Individuals with SAS are typically impacted across feeding, speech, intelligibility, receptive language, and expressive language, and a significant portion also have issues with resonance and social language abilities. Initial research yielded information gleaned from short clinic visits with speech-language pathologists at the Arkansas Children’s Hospital SAS Clinic. This clinic model has been expanded to include longer visits with more thorough testing. In this presentation, updated information regarding the speech, language, and feeding findings of children with SAS will be discussed.
