3-Part Treatment Plan for OPT™ (Level 1)

Course Description

This introductory course to OPT (Oral Placement Therapy)​ is the foundation for TalkTools training and is integrated throughout all of our courses. OPT is a type of oral-motor therapy that targets specific movements needed for speech and feeding. The "3 parts" of OPT are: auditory and visual sensory systems COMBINED WITH tactile -- and propioceptive -- sensory systems. TalkTools training applies a unique, hierarchical approach to OPT, focused on a measurable, results-driven path for both therapists and clients across all ages and diagnoses with the goal of: 

  • speech clarity
  • improved feeding
  • independence
  • improved QUALITY OF LIFE

This interactive, hands-on course includes highly motivating activities targeting the abdomen, velum, jaw, lips and tongue. Techniques learned can be readily implemented across many therapy environments -- private practices, hospitals, schools and home.

Learning Outcomes

  • The participant will be able to appropriately assess oral placement/feeding/speech problems based on muscle systems.
  • The participant will be able to integrate hierarchies for motor dissociation and grading (jaw-lips-tongue).
  • The participant will be able to plan programs of therapeutic intervention to address physiological and motor-based speech disorders.
  • The participant will be able to apply at least 10 new therapy techniques.
  • The participant will be able to properly use oral placement techniques to improve individual speech clarity and production.

OPT™: Assessment and and Program Plan Development (Level 1)

Course Description

Learn how to perform a comprehensive evaluation for clients with sensory, feeding and/or speech disorders following the principles of Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson’s hierarchical approach to oral-motor assessment and treatment using the techniques learned in “A Three Part Treatment Plan to Oral Placement Therapy.” This class will lead you, step-by-step, through the assessment process used with clients of varying ages and skill levels who evidence oral placement deficits. Participants will observe via videos, two complete assessment sessions and follow up treatment with clients from infancy to adult, and will learn how to identify oral-motor deficits that effect speech production.

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will be able to Identify oral placement, sensory, feeding and/or speech deficits in a variety of clients and diagnoses
  • Participants will be able to Assess oral placement functioning of the jaw, lips, and tongue
  • Participants will be able to Design a step-by-step program plan based on the client’s oral-motor feeding and speech evaluation results
  • Participants will be able to Apply oral placement strategies, when appropriate, with infant, preschool, and school-aged children as a part of comprehensive speech and language therapy intervention
