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.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify oral placement, sensory, feeding and/or speech deficits in a variety of clients and diagnoses.
  2. Assess oral placement functioning of the jaw, lips, and tongue.
  3. Design a step-by-step program plan based on the client’s oral-motor feeding and speech evaluation results.
  4. Apply oral placement strategies, when appropriate, with infant, preschool, and school-aged children as a part of comprehensive speech and language therapy intervention.
