Come hear Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson, MS, CCC-SLP presenter her 1-day course

entitled “Muscle Placement & Movement Patterns for Speech Clarity & Feeding Safety.”

In this presentation Sara will explain her unique program of using oral-motor therapy

in association with traditional speech therapy to improve nutrition, feeding safety and

speech clarity. Sara’s techniques are based on a hierarchy of oral placement and

movement in the abdomen, jaw, lips & tongue. The therapy targets the "feel" of

speech and is motivating for children and adults of all ages and ability levels.
