About the Course

Course Description

This introductory course to OPT (Oral Placement Therapy)​ is the foundation for TalkTools training and is integrated throughout all of our courses. OPT is a type of oral-motor therapy that targets specific movements needed for speech and feeding. The "3 parts" of OPT are: auditory and visual sensory systems COMBINED WITH tactile -- and propioceptive -- sensory systems. TalkTools training applies a unique, hierarchical approach to OPT, focused on a measurable, results-driven path for both therapists and clients across all ages and diagnoses with the goal of:

  • speech clarity
  • improved feeding
  • independence
  • improved QUALITY OF LIFE

This interactive, hands-on course includes highly motivating activities targeting the abdomen, velum, jaw, lips and tongue. Techniques learned can be readily implemented across many therapy environments -- private practices, hospitals, schools and home.

Learning Outcomes

  • The participant will be able to appropriately assess oral placement/feeding/speech problems based on muscle systems.
  • The participant will be able to integrate hierarchies for motor dissociation and grading (jaw-lips-tongue).
  • The participant will be able to plan programs of therapeutic intervention to address physiological and motor-based speech disorders.
  • The participant will be able to apply at least 10 new therapy techniques.
  • The participant will be able to properly use oral placement techniques to improve individual speech clarity and production.
