MYOTools will help clinicians who are new to orofacial myology explore an opportunity to look at their caseloads with a new lens. It will open the door to understanding the nexus of form and function and why this interaction is the foundation for improved airway health, sleep, oral resting posture,  feeding, and speech. With the MYOscreener and MYOstructure tools for assessment,  the prevention and identification of orofacial myofunctional disorders will be addressed.  The importance of interdisciplinary practice and a  referral base for the MYOteam will be encouraged. Then with MYOTools for intervention,  course attendees will be able to embark in their journey in orofacial myology. Course attendees can complete this course and decide to have the MYOTools they need to make proper referrals or be ready to move on to more advanced training if so desired.

Event Information

Course Description

Virtual streaming workshops and webinars are recorded during the time of broadcast; THIS WORKSHOP'S RECORDED PRESENTATIONS WILL BE ACCESSIBLE TO PARTICIPANTS UNTIL AUGUST 11TH through your learner profile on the TalkTools Training site.

Historically myofunctional therapy was seemingly a mysterious technique that only a few progressive professionals were proficient in. In fact, it was often questioned as an evidence-based practice and those practicing were few and far between. TalkTools® Instructor Robyn Merkel-Walsh was one of those innovative professionals who was teaching the main concepts of orofacial myofunctional disorders, and the perspective on using this approach to treating speech sound disorders in children since 1998. Over the past 26 + years, Robyn has merged her expertise in oral sensory-motor, feeding, and oral placement therapies with orofacial myology to create this MYOTools course in an effort to enhance the clinical outcomes of many new patients beyond her own.
