Ask a Therapist: Breathing & Sleep Patterns

I’m a speech pathologist from Oman. I have a 9-year-old boy who exhibits mouth breathing, sleep apnea, and snoring. Despite undergoing adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy last year, there has been no improvement in his sleep and breathing patterns. I am seeking guidance on suitable online courses to address these concerns. Can you recommend a course that may assist me in addressing my son’s breathing and sleeping issues?

I think taking Lori Overland and Robyn Merkel-Walshes class on tethered oral tissue may be a great place to start. You may also check out my Nasal Breathing course or my Superpowers of the Sensory System course with Occupational Therapist Jen Ray. Hope these recommendations help! – Monica Purdy, MA, CCC-SLP, COM®
