COURSE DESCRIPTION

This introductory course to OPT (Oral Placement Therapy) is the foundation for TalkTools training and is integrated throughout all of our courses. OPT is a type of oral-motor therapy that targets specific movements needed for speech and feeding. The “3 parts” of OPT are: auditory and visual sensory systems COMBINED WITH tactile — and propioceptive — sensory systems. TalkTools training applies a unique, hierarchical approach to OPT, focused on a measurable, results-driven path for both therapists and clients across all ages and diagnoses with the goal of:

  • Speech Clarity
  • Improved Feeding
  • Independence
  • Improved Quality Of Life

This interactive, hands-on course includes highly motivating 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.

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.
  • Be able to apply at least 10 new therapy techniques.
  • Properly use oral placement techniques to improve individual speech clarity and production.

THE COURSE

TalkTools’ innovative tactile-sensory approach to speech therapy uses therapy tools to train and transition muscle movements for speech production.

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