Course Description

Course participants will learn how the jaw impacts the movement and stability, grading, and dissociation of the muscles of oral cavity. How much strength and stability the jaw has will provide for increased precision with movement for the lips, cheeks, and tongue. This is foundational for speech, oral rest posture, and proper swallowing. Topics in this presentation will include anatomy, growth and development of the jaw, and exercises on how to optimize function.   

Learning Outcomes

After completion of this presentation participants will be able to:

1. Explain why targeting jaw stability is essential in obtaining long term myofunctional goals.
2. Identify patients who have poor jaw stability
3. Explain a minimum of 3 different jaw stability exercises to implement with patients.
4. Describe contraindications when implementing jaw exercises.

Content Disclosure: This presentation will focus on treatment methods related to the use of TalkTools® OPT resources. Other similar treatment approaches will receive limited or no coverage during this lecture.
