TalkTools Oral Placement Therapy Workshop – October 20 – 21
Oral Placement Therapy: Assessment and Program Plan Development
Presented by Renee Roy Hill, MS, CCC-SLP
Learn how to perform a comprehensive evaluation for clients with sensory, feeding and/or speech disorders following the principles of TalkTool’s 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-bystep, 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.
