3-Part Treatment Plan for Oral Placement Therapy (OPT)
Presented by Renee Roy-Hill, M.S., CCC-SLP. This introductory course to OPT (Oral Placement Therapy) is the foundation for TalkTools training and is integrated throughout all of our courses.
Participants will engage in interactive, hands-on activities targeting the abdomen, velum, jaw, lips and tongue. Techniques learned can be readily implemented across many therapy environments--private practices, hospitals, schools and home. TalkTools' innovative tactile-sensory approach to speech therapy uses therapy tools to train and transition muscle movements for speech production.
Learning outcomes will include appropriately assess oral placement/feeding/speech problems, integrate hierarchies for motor dissociation and grading (jaw-lip-tongue), plan programs of therapeutic intervention to address physiological and motor-based speech disorders, be able to apply at least 10 new therapy techniques and properly use oral placement techniques to improve individual speech clarity and production.
Offered for 1.2 ASHA CEUs and AOTA approved CEUs
