Workshop On Oral Placement Therapy Level 2



Oral Placement Therapy provides a comprehensive solution to a variety of speech and feeding issues, it utilizes a combination of:

  • Auditory stimulation
  • 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.

Assessment & Program Plan Development- OPT Level 2 

Learn how to perform a comprehensive evaluation for clients with sensory, feeding and/or speech disorders following the principles of Sara RosenfeldJohnson’s hierarchical approach to oral-motor assessment and treatment using the techniques learned in “A Three Part Treatment Plan to Oral Placement Therapy.”

This class will lead you, step-by-step, through the assessment process used with clients of varying ages and skill levels who evidence oral placement deficits. Participants will observe via videos, two complete assessment sessions and follow up treatment with clients from infancy to adult, and will learn how to identify oral-motor deficits that effect speech production.

Development of therapeutic program plans designed specifically to meet each client’s oral placement needs will be addressed. A live evaluation will be performed on the second day allowing participants to observe client skills, record observations on an assessment form and develop a therapeutic plan from these results. We are sure you will leave this session with advanced skills in assessment and program plan development for each client with oral placement needs.
