Provider of Therapy Services to Long Term Care Nursing Centers
ASHA has been asked by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) to alert ASHA members that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has temporarily suspended all necessary statutes and rules to allow licensed health care providers (including audiologists and SLPs) who are employed by a hospital and who are in good standing in another state to practice in Texas to assist with tropical storm Harvey disaster response operations. More information is available on the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation website. https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/slpa/slpa.htm

Big news at #APTACSM ...
The future of physical therapy has arrived.
Proposed 2017 regulations for Medicare Part B (outpatient) reimbursement would have little or no effect on fees for audiologists and speech-language pathologists, end some quality measure programs, propose mandatory enrollment for managed care providers, and revise some laryngoscopy codes.
Overall, however, the rule, which applies to calendar year 2017, has no significant impact on audiology and speech-language services. No changes—including reimbursement levels—are final until the final rule is published later this year.

“Speaking up.” It’s something that ASHA members do well—and help others do every day. Mostly, you do it in day-to-day interactions with patients, clients, families, students, supervisors, allied professionals and others. During May is Better Hearing & Speech Month, the ASHA community has an opportunity to speak up on a larger scale. You—our 186,000 members and affiliates—can educate people about the importance of communication, the signs of communication disorders and the life-changing services ASHA members provide. #AudPeeps #SLPeeps #BHSM

Seniors who have insufficient levels of the nutrient could be at risk for declining cognitive abilities—and those at highest risk may be those with darker skin, which absorbs less vitamin D from sunshine than lighter skin does. The study, from the Alzheimer’s Disease Center of the University of California, Davis, and Rutgers University, appears in the journal JAMA Neurology. Participants with low vitamin-D levels had an accelerated rate of cognitive decline and impaired performance—two to three times faster than those who had enough vitamin D.
“Independent of race or ethnicity, baseline cognitive abilities and a host of other risk factors, vitamin-D insufficiency was associated with significantly faster declines in both episodic memory and executive function performance,” says lead author Joshua Miller, a professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Rutgers when the research was conducted (and now professor and chair of the Department of Nutritional Sciences).

At one point in his life, Scott wondered if he was about to lose his ability to walk. He was only 50 years old, but he weighed more than 500 pounds and he had chronic venous wounds on his legs. His health and quality of life were deteriorating rapidly. Fortunately, Scott met someone who changed his life: a physical therapist who not only treated his immediate condition but also gave him the encouragement and confidence he needed to make essential and drastic changes.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, we're examining Scott's story of how his life was transformed by physical therapy. He is now less than half of the 500-pound man he used to be and he regularly exercises. And his happiness has grown tremendously. http://bit.ly/1T189hW #PTTtransforms
