Feeding, Breathing, and More: A Functional Approach to Oromotor Development (For All Practice Types)

In this presentation and panel dialogue we are going to focus on oromotor development and its relationship to a myriad of feeding, dental, breathing, and even mental health challenges that our patients and families experience.  Drawing on years of experience with postpartum care and infant feeding, perinatal mental health, dentistry, tongue tie assessments and revisions, and downstream health concerns that many of you see in your practice, we are going to walk you through how:
1) When tongue tie and other oromotor issues should be on your DDx (i.e. reflux, 'food allergies')
2) How to assess and/or refer for tongue tie assessment or revision
3) How to talk to your patients about tongue ties/oromotor issues, tongue tie revisions, and other therapies that we use in place of or adjunctively
4) Determining who is on (or should be) your interdisciplinary team and why
5) What you may see downstream if someone revises or not, depending on the timing of the assessment and revisions, and how that can be implicated in adolescent or adult health concerns
Finally, we will wrap up with a panel dialogue with you to address questions or concerns you are seeing in your practice.
