Fargo SLPs Complete Oral-Motor Therapy Training

September 11, 2015

Pediatric Therapy Partners’ Fargo speech language pathologists Alaina Fennell, Amanda Vanden Hoek, Brittany Stock, and Janette Venaas-Gilbraith completed a course in “Oral-Motor Therapy: Assessment & Program Plan Development” for continuing education.

Attendees gained a better understanding of the oral motor, sensory, and feeding hierarchy and the assessment protocols to use when assessing oral motor skills. Most beneficial was learning how to transition information obtained during an assessment to a child’s real life functional activities.
