TalkTools® virtual streaming workshops and webinars are recorded. Recorded presentations are available for 2 days after the dates posted and accessible only to learners who purchased a seat for this course.

Course Description

Tethered Oral Tissue (TOTs) is often being discussed in the fields of dentistry, otolaryngology, speech pathology, lactation as well as occupational and physical medicine. While many agree on the impact of TOTs on breastfeeding, some professionals debate,  or do not understand the functional impact of TOTs across the lifespan. Often babies seemingly improve with functional skills after a release in relation to breastfeeding, but as they advance to solids and age-appropriate drinking vessels problems arise. There are also toddlers who are picky eaters or have unintelligible speech that the TOTs diagnosis was missed in infancy. While some argue that a toddlers cannot undergo frenectomies or engage in pre-and post-op care, this is a myth. Many toddlers have successful TOTs release outcomes when therapists combine oral sensory-motor techniques with behavior management strategies. This course will outline the functional symptoms of toddlers with TOTs and the clinical parameters for treatment.

Participants will be able to:

  • List at least 3 red flags of TOTs in toddlers.
  • Identify 3 problems that may arise in TOTs is not addressed in the toddler years.
