The ORPP Introduction and Screening course is a one-day course aimed at highlighting a key link between orofacial myofunctional disorders [OMDs] and articulation.

  • Define, screen and identify children with orofacial myofunctional disorders (OMDs) including poor oral rest posture and tongue thrust swallowing.
  • Define, understand and use common dental terminology relating to OMDs including oral rest posture, freeway space and tongue thrust swallow patterns.
  • Understand how poor oral rest posture impacts a child’s prognosis for speech articulation therapy.
  • Determine appropriate early intervention to help minimize the impact of the OMD on both speech articulation and dental development.
  • Develop and implement a preliminary ORPP treatment program for clients with OMDs.
