Workshop on Oral Placement Therapy (OPT2)
Assessment And Program Plan Development For Oral Placement Therapy
Learn how to perform a comprehensive evaluation for clients with sensory, feeding and/or speech disorders following the principles of TalkTools’ hierarchical approach to oral-motor assessment and treatment using the techniques learned in “A Three-Part Treatment Plan for 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.
