Past Audience Comments:

  • Linda is a dynamic and knowledgeable presenter. Her love of teaching combined with her desire to learn is resounding. While following the agenda of the conference, Linda created a learning environment that was open and community based. I look forward to attending more OMT conferences lead by this outstanding practitioner and presenter. -- Tricia H. Rogers, MS-CCC-SLP, Oromyofunctional specialist in private practice
  • Collaboration in patient care with Linda D’Onofrio has been fun and informative! I highly recommend her class to all my colleagues in the dental and ENT field! Her focus is on the impact of oral function such as chewing and swallowing on oral development, occlusion, smile, facial pain, etc. She’s also armed with a nice collection of relevant research if anyone is interested! --Maryam Motlagh, DMD, Neuromuscular dentist
  • Thanks for the informative two days!! You enhanced my learning with a concrete plan of incorporating diagnostic and therapeutic tools into my practice. You also validated my current practice and ideology which is a great feeling. And I met great folks! I really appreciated your enthusiasm for all your roles as a speech therapist. You are a terrific speaker. -- Anne Dworschak-Stokan, MS, Reg. CASLPO, Cleft palate & VPI hospital team
