#7329 Assessment and Intervention for Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTs) in Feeding Therapy


Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTs) are the frenulum attachments within the mouth, there are typically 7 locations, and the restrictions that can be observed can impact growth and development, feeding, and speech. This course provides participations with functional and structural assessment of TOTs with specific focus on intervention and treatment related to feeding deficits. The course will cover topics including foundational anatomy and physiology and provide case studies and education for assessment and intervention to increase food acceptance and oral motor sensory skills related to feeding. The importance and dynamic of a professional team and related scopes of practice will also be discussed. Course instruction methods include lecture, demonstration, case studies and question/answers.
