A THREE-PART TREATMENT PLAN FOR ORAL PLACEMENT THERAPY
Presented by: Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson, MS, CCC-SLP
*EARN 1.2 ASHA and AOTA CEUs*
Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson’s innovative tactile-sensory approach to speech therapy uses therapy tools to train and transition muscle movements for speech production. Learn how 40 highly motivating motor activities can be used to improve phonation, resonation, and speech clarity. Interactive, hands-on demonstrations will focus on therapeutically sound techniques to develop oral-motor movements for improved speech clarity. Muscles of the abdomen, velum, jaw, lips, and tongue will be discussed within the parameters of movements necessary for speech production. Developmentally appropriate motor movements for speech are therapeutically targeted using highly motivating techniques appropriate for children and adults.
1. Appropriately assess oral-motor/feeding/speech problems based on muscle systems.
2. Integrate hierarchies for motor dissociation and grading (jaw-lips-tongue).
3. Plan programs of therapeutic intervention to address physiological and motor-based speech disorders.
4. Appropriately apply at least 10 new therapy techniques.
5. Learn to use oral-motor techniques to improve individual speech clarity and production.
AGENDA: DAY 1

D. Overview of Feeding and How It Effects Speech Clarity
AGENDA: DAY 2
A. Treatment...Treatment...Treatment: Muscle-Based Exercises for Speech Clarity
B. Activities to Improve Abdominal Grading and Breath Support. “It’s not the horn; it’s the hierarchy of movement!”
