Three-Part Treatment Plan for Oral Placement Therapy

Three-Part Treatment Plan for Oral Placement Therapy

In cooperation with our international partner BARNAS språksenter!

Date: May 11-12, 2017

Location: Oslo, Norway

Presenter: Line Avers, MS, SLP

The Course

TalkTools' innovative tactile-sensory approach to speech therapy uses therapy tools to train and transition muscle movements for speech production. Learn how 40 highly motivating motor activities can be used to improve phonation, resonation, and speech clarity.

Interactive, hands-on demonstrations will focus on therapeutically sound techniques to develop oral-motor movements for improved speech clarity. Muscles of the abdomen, velum, jaw, lips, and tongue will be discussed within the parameters of movements necessary for speech production.

Developmentally appropriate motor movements for speech are therapeutically targeted using highly motivating techniques appropriate for children and adults.

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.
  • Appropriately apply at least 10 new therapy techniques.
  • Learn to use oral placement techniques to improve individual speech clarity and production.
