Orofacial Myology:

Orofacial Myology is the treatment of orofacial complex dysfunction and includes differential diagnosis to determine specific structural and functional impacts followed by an individualized treatment plan for each patient. Atypical oral rest posture (lips apart, tongue low or forward in the oral cavity), mouth breathing, forward movement of the tongue during swallowing, sucking habits (thumb, finger, tongue, etc), clenching, and grinding are all examples of orofacial myofunctional disorders and when untreated these can lead to changes in dental alignment (malocclusion), maxillary and mandibular jaw growth patterns, breathing, chewing and swallowing, speech sound production, and sleep patterns.

Speech Therapy:

Our skilled therapists are focused on providing individualized intervention for speech sound production, language, and play based difficulties that ensure a child can engage and interact in their environment. We incorporate evidence based treatment strategies to address unintelligible speech, late talking toddlers, social language difficulties, and underdeveloped play and interaction skills.

We pride ourselves on being able to remediate articulation errors, support motor planning for sound sequencing for children with apraxia of speech, and enhancing the communication skills of those who are late to babble and say words. We know that building language skills through literacy based tasks supports academic skills and use books to promote early literacy skills and language development.
