Course Description
What your mouth is doing when you aren’t doing anything is more important than you think! Your resting mouth is defined by what you are NOT doing orally: eating, speaking, chewing gum, brushing your teeth, facial expressions. TalkTools Instructor, Vanessa Anderson Smith, will be delving into the importance of adopting correct oral resting postures, particularly in relation to speech and feeding. Lingual, labial, buccal, maxillary and mandible structures from an orofacial myofunctional perspective will be reviewed. Vanessa will demonstrate a variety of proven oral-motor techniques for correcting and stabilizing resting postures to facilitate speech clarity and improved feeding. . . . more
