Do you have a course for adults yet? My Dad is 95, has experienced several TIAs, and I would like to be able to assist him in regaining his muscle functioning.
I also notice how many of the seniors have difficulty chewing and swallowing. I am a certified orofacial myofunctional therapist through the IAOM. I have several ideas, but when I saw that you developed a program, I am most interested. I didn’t see any program listed as available?
Thanks for your assistance
I have just finished my newest book on my work with adults and am in the process of creating a 1-day class on the subject. It is not on video as yet but I will be offering it “live” at numerous locations this Fall and my book should be coming out within the next six months. I realize that does not help you now so let me give you a few suggestions of how to work with your dad.
As you mentioned, many of the seniors do have difficulty chewing and swallowing in addition to having speech clarity disorders. I have developed a program to address the oral phase of feeding and speech clarity which includes improved mobility in the jaw, lips, cheeks and tongue. The two basic programs are: Bite-Tube Hierarchy and Straw Drinking Hierarchy.
