The Colleen and Erwin Martens and CSD annual colloquium will be held on Friday October 07, 2016 at the Hilton Garden Inn of Grand Forks.
The colloquium this year brings Dr. Jerry Hoepner, CCC-SLP.
Morning session: 8:15 am – 11:30 am
The intersection between Positive, Everyday Routines and Communication Partner Training
Afternoon session: 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Challenges with social pragmatics and interactional behaviors are present throughout the lifespan and across etiologies. Whether still developing, delayed, or impaired by brain injury later in life, impairments to social interactions can challenge relationships of all types. Two evidence-based approaches to addressing these challenges are routines and communication partner training. Actually, it is hard to have one without the other. This presentation will address elements of routine-based assessment and interventions, across the lifespan. Routines are central to the success of many of our everyday interactions. They are carried out by implicit memory and learning systems, which develop early and are preserved late. Learn how we can capitalize on them to support effective social interactions. Effective implementation of routines begins with communication partners. Learn how training partners can help with implementation and carryover of routines, as well as other elements of everyday communication.
1) Learn about the underlying neurological mechanisms that learn and operate routines.
2) Learn about the importance of and implementation of routine-based assessment.
3) Learn about the importance of and implementation of routine-based interventions.
4) Learn about the role of partners in routine-based interventions and training implementation.
5) Learn about how to implement best practices in communication partner training approaches.

About the Colloquium
The purpose of the colloquium is to bring the latest advances in clinical practice to UND students and faculty, particularly in specialized areas that may be difficult to cover in depth within the UND curriculum. Each colloquium consists of a day long presentation by an individual who is a recognized authority in a particular area of communication disorders. In addition, the SLPs who supervise our students in their outside placements are invited. The series has been a popular one, averaging in the neighborhood of 90 attendees per colloquium.
The CSD colloquium series has been in existence since 2002, but has recently received a much-appreciated financial boost. Initially funded by CSD and UND funds, the colloquium has been underwritten by the Erwin and Colleen Martens Endowment since the spring of 2006. Funding through the Endowment has brought both increased resources and a stable and predictable source of funds for the future.
Colleen received her B.S. in communication sciences and disorders from UND in 1984 and her M.S. in speech-language pathology from UND in 1985. Thanks to the Marten’s generosity, CSD at UND has an additional and extremely valuable means of enriching the educational experience of its constituents.
