OPT: Assessment and Program Plan Development [Israel]
Date: November 7-8, 2018
Location: Jerusalem, Israel
Presenter: Sara Rosenfeld Johnson, MS, CCC-SLP
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.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify oral placement, sensory, feeding and/or speech deficits in a variety of clients and diagnoses
- Assess oral placement functioning of the jaw, lips, and tongue
- Design a step-by-step program plan based on the client’s oral-motor feeding and speech evaluation results
- Apply oral placement strategies, when appropriate, with infant, preschool, and school-aged children as a part of comprehensive speech and language therapy intervention.
