Additional topics of discussion may include: goal writing, diet texture progression, tube to oral issues, adaptive mealtime utensils, oral hygiene issues, medication administration issues, oral function for individuals with trachs, facilitating improved articulation through oral motor techniques, research issues, videofluroscopy issues for motorically involved individuals, and additional topics of importance as determined by the participant. In this two day course participants will actively participate in hands-on practice for compensatory handling techniques for the following concerns: tonic bite, tonic bite on a utensil, slow oral transit, tongue thrust, cough, gag and vomit. The participants will complete an oral motor protocol with each other, analyze the results, and discuss data tracking. The participants will also complete hands-on practice for specific oral motor interventions to address the deficit areas discovered during baseline assessment. Course Objectives are: • Demonstrate assessment battery for determining orofacial movement patterns using the Beckman protocol. • Demonstrate compensatory handling techniques. • Demonstrate oral motor interventions and treatment techniques. • Recognize how to screen for potential referral candidates. • Identify the results of the techniques discussed. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
