Ask A Therapist: Tongue Tie Assessment

Do you have any advice for tongue tie assessment?

Yes! The good news is we have many resources for TOTs like,  an eLearning course for TOTs screening called TOTs 5-Step Screening Tool as well as a book titled Functional Assessment and Remediation of TOTs. We also offer a deep dive course that we run regularly for TOTs assessment that is also titled Functional Assessment and Remediation of TOTs that is either taught by myself, Lori L. Overland MS CCC-SLP, C/NDT, CLC, FOM, or the both of us! This course explores the functional assessment of TOTs and reviews current well-respected assessment tools which describe structure. With these tools, we have developed the Merkel-Walsh & Overland TOTs Protocol which looks at structure, oral motor function, pre-feeding, feeding, and speech. check out the training calendar to see when we offer this course next. Hope this helps!  –Robyn Merkel-Walsh, MA, CCC-SLP, COM®️
