Conclusions Though it is not without inherent challenges, fNIRS may have advantages over other neuroimaging techniques in the areas of speech and language impairment. fNIRS has clinical applications that may lead to improved early and differential diagnosis, increase our understanding of response to treatment, improve neuroprosthetic functioning, and advance neurofeedback.

Cortical deafness is an extremely rare clinical manifestation that originates mainly from bilateral cortical lesions in the primary auditory cortex. Its main clinical manifestation is the bilateral sudden loss of hearing. Diagnosis is difficulty due to its rarity and similarity with other language and communication disorders, such as Wernicke's aphasia, auditory agnosia or verbal deafness. Herein, we present a case report of a young woman with a sudden bilateral loss of auditory comprehension. Initially, a psychiatric nature of the disorder was considered, but the persistence of the symptoms, lead to the diagnosis of corti...

The AIC Caucus met this past November at the 2017 ASHA Convention in Los Angeles. A monolingual speech-language pathologist recently reached out to ASHA’s Asian Indian Caucus (AIC) for a Tamil-speaking SLP to provide services for a 70-year-old elderly New Jersey man. The patient had expressive aphasia due to a recent stroke. The AIC community—through its active listserve—immediately located a bilingual SLP who spoke English and Tamil. The SLP worked with the client’s local SLP to help him receive linguistically and culturally appropriate services. In another instance, a 35-year-old female vocalist&m...

Guest post by former student, William Matchin: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++  It ’s been almost 10 years since the Society for the Neurobiology of Language conference (SNL) began, and it is always one of my favorite events of the year, where I catch up with old friends and see and discuss much of the research that interests me in a compact form. This year’s meeting was no ex ception. The opening night talk about dolphin communication by Diana Reiss was fun and interesting, and the reception at the Baltimore aquarium was spectacular and well organized. I was impressed with the high quality...

By Samantha Weatherford   I was recently asked on a phone interview, “What do you like to do outside of speech therapy?” Oh. My. Gosh. What do I like to do? I have no idea. I have been studying speech-language pathology (SLP) for the past six years, and two of those six have been nonstop SLP. I am good at speech therapy and I am not good at a lot of things, so I really need to take advantage. I eat, sleep, and breathe SLP. My friends are speechies. My role models are speechies. I only take SLP classes. I blog about SLP. I attend SLP conferences. I watch movies like The King’s Speech and Children o...
