Implementing OMT in Schools

Implementing OMT in Schools

Zoom Webinar On-Demand

This 6-hour short course, broken into three 2-hour lessons, teaches school-based SLPs how to recognize OMDs on their caseload, advocate for their students, educate their districts, and incorporate OMT into their existing IEP objectives. Because the course is kept small, instruction can be customized to fit individual and group needs and current education and skill level.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Differentially diagnosis articulation from oromyofunctional disorder.

2. Educate school colleagues and district peers on OMD and the evidence-base.

3. Prioritize treatment and treat more efficiently.
