What We Do

Tools

Our signature items, like the Horn and Straw Hierarchies and Jaw Grading Bite Blocks, are now household names in the oral placement field. Leaders in the industry for 30 years, TalkTools® has positioned itself as the authoritative worldwide source for oral placement, sensory, and feeding therapy supplies.

Technique

Oral Placement Therapy (OPT) uses a hierarchical based approach to improve speech clarity and feeding skills in individuals of all ages and across diagnoses. These innovative techniques focus on motor movement activities used to improve phonation, resonation, and speech clarity. Combined with a tactile-sensory approach, OPT provides a comprehensive solution to a variety of speech and feeding issues. OPT involves the use of therapy tools to train and transition muscle movements for speech production. Our techniques, applied in combination with the tools, make the difference in client’s lives.

Training

TalkTools® offers professional therapists opportunities to learn and train in innovative and solution based therapy techniques. Over 5000 speech and feeding professionals, including speech and language pathologists, speech therapists and occuaptional therapists, participate in our training course -- either online or via one of workshops. Those interested in advancing their knowledge are invited to participate in our exclusive TalkTools® Level Training Program.
