Course Description

Robyn’s SMILE Program (SysteMatic Intervention for Lingual Elevation) is an effective way to help children remediate articulation errors including persistent lisps, interdentalized productions of t-d-l-n, and distortions of sh-ch-r. The program targets the root of the speech problem which is often a tongue thrust disorder. Robyn discovered in a school-based setting that by combining oral placement, swallowing and articulation therapies progress rates improved. This one-day seminar addresses children ages 3 and up, who present with persistent articulation errors secondary to a Tongue Thrust Disorder.

Learning Outcomes
  • Participants will be able to diagnose myofunctional disorders based on oral placement skills/swallowing skills/articulation skills.
  • Participants will be able to list defining characteristics of a myofunctional disorder.
  • Participants will be able to determine if oral-motor prerequisite skills are intact in order to initiate myofunctional therapy techniques (Jaw-structure-tone).
  • Participants will be able to measure treatment outcomes throughout the therapeutic process.
  • Participants will be able to combine oral placement, swallowing and articulation therapy techniques for those children who present myofunctional disorders.
  • Participants will be able to implement at least ten exercises for a tongue thrust program.
