UPDATED COURSE! 

Description

This introductory course to OPT (Oral Placement Therapy)​ is the foundation for TalkTools training and is integrated throughout all of our courses.

Participants will engage in interactive, hands-on 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. TalkTools' innovative tactile-sensory approach to speech therapy uses therapy tools to train and transition muscle movements for speech production.

 LEARNING OUTCOMES
  • Appropriately assess oral placement/feeding/speech problems based on muscle systems.
  • Integrate hierarchies for motor dissociation and grading (jaw-lips-tongue).
  • Plan programs of therapeutic intervention to address physiological and motor-based speech disorders.
  • Be able to apply at least 10 new therapy techniques.
  • Properly use oral placement techniques to improve individual speech clarity and production.
