Oral Placement Therapy Course:
|"Clinical Implications for Tongue Thrust & Lisp."|
|Course Title:||Clinical Implications for Tongue Thrust & Lisp|
This course is offered for 0.6 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, Professional area).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-motor, swallowing and articulation therapies progress rates improved. This one-day seminar deals with children ages 3 and up, who present with persistent articulation errors secondary to a Tongue Thrust Disorder.
- Diagnose myofunctional disorders based on oral placement skills/swallowing skills/articulation skills.
- List defining characteristics of a myofunctional disorder.
- Determine if oral-motor prerequisite skills are intact in order to initiate myofunctional therapy techniques (jaw-structure-tone).
- Measure treatment outcomes throughout the therapeutic process.
- Combine oral placement, swallowing and articulation therapy techniques for those children who present with myofunctional disorders.
- Implement at least ten exercises for a tongue thrust program.
