Foundations in Feeding and Speech Clarity:New Horizons in Oral Placement Therapy

1.2 ASHA / AOTA CEUS

Presented by the following Expert SLPs:

Lori Overland, Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson, Renee Roy Hill and Robyn Merkel-Walsh

 

Summary:

This 2-day seminar will cover 4 approaches, all of which are applicable to clients from birth through geriatrics with a wide variety of diagnoses. Day 1 begins by introducing a sensory motor approach to feeding therapy. An overview of assessment and treatment techniques will be covered. Day 1continues with a tactile motor approach to improving speech clarity for clients diagnoses with dysarthria and/or apraxia. An overview of assessment and treatment techniques will be provided. The start of Day 2 will discuss the approach for more intensive and alternative therapies for those clients diagnosed with apraxia and other co-existing diagnosis, as identified by ASHA. Information on how OPT in conjunction with tactile motor speech approaches will improve the therapists ability to teach verbal communication to those clients who may not be responding to traditional motor speech approaches. A hierarchical approach will be presented moving the client from non verbal to verbal imitation. Day 2 concludes with an approach on Autism that teaches therapists how tactile therapies, including Oral Placement Therapy, can be utilized when working with challenging cases. When therapists use a variety of current methodologies, such as Applied Behavioral Analysis and Floortime, clients of all ages and cognitive levels can make progress in sessions. Aggressive behaviors and self limited diets will be discussed.

 

Learning Outcomes:

1. The participant will identify at least three factors which influence the oral phase of feeding.

2. The participant will identify at least two pre-feeding and two therapeutic feeding techniques.

3. The participant will identify at least three muscle-based factors that influence the development of standard speech clarity.

4. The participant will be able to use at least 4 new therapy techniques to improve speech clarity in both children and adults.

5. Participant will be able to identify who this therapy approach is appropriate for through the assessment process

6. Participant will be able to apply 2-3 new techniques to transition from OPT to speech production.

7. Participants will be able to identify at least 3 current therapies being used by speech pathologists who work with clients who are on the autistic spectrum.

8. Participants will be able to identify and use two types of reinforcements to utilize with a child on the autistic spectrum.
