Ask A Therapist: Cranial Dystonia & Embouchure Disorder

I am seeking information about cranial dystonia and embouchure disorder and use of TalkTools.

I have not worked with an embouchure disorder but did play French horn so I’m familiar with the aspects of placement or embouchure during physical playing of an instrument. As per the cranial dystonia all I could offer is a thorough myofunctional evaluation for overall mandible/mandibular alignment without considering the embouchure (or playing an instrument) to see if TalkTools or any other placement type therapy or swallow function would be interfering, enhancing and/or adding to the tremor or dysfunction. I hope this helps and let us know if you have any other questions!  –Colette Ellis, M.Ed., CCC-SLP, BCS-S
