Workshop On Oral Placement Therapy - A 3 PART TREATMENT PLAN for ORAL PLACEMENT THERAPY
Oral Placement Therapy provides a comprehensive solution to a variety of speech and feeding issues, it utilizes a combination of:
Visual stimulation and
Tactile stimulation to the mouth to improve speech clarity.
OPT is an important addition to traditional speech treatment methods for clients with placement and movement deficits.
It is a tactile-proprioceptive teaching technique which accompanies traditional therapy. Traditional therapy is primarily auditory and visual.
Clients with motor and/or sensory impairments benefit from tactile and proprioceptive components because speech is a tactile-proprioceptive act.
OPT is a unique hierarchical protocol for both therapist & Clients across all ages and diagnosis.
