"I would 1000% recommend the ORPP course to all SLPs and many other health care providers. I was missing this foundational knowledge. I had some of it but did not understand how to step by step work on Oral Rest Posture.  ORPP provides a very well laid out process for the entire assessment, treatment and maintenance process. There is rationale for every activity. It's flexible and dynamic and responsive to the individual throughout. The assessment process is incredibly thorough and transparent with all the background information gathered and stepwise assessment process. I had done similar oral mechanism exams but now I understand so much more what I am looking at. It's a superb program and and very good pace in 4 days. I think it's a huge service you providing for our profession and the public. You are both deeply knowledgeable, encouraging and generous as presenters...not to mention inspiring. Thank you!!"       ~ Deborah Carter

"This was an amazing and informative course. I learned so much and Nicole & Karrie were right - the more I learn the more question I have, but I feel that I am on the right path :)   ~ Jill Northwood

 "Truthfully this is the most practical and info packed course I have taken in years. The method of instruction, the engagement, the theory, and the practicality were all perfectly balanced and made learning so easy!"   ~ Karlie Hudon

What's Included In This Course


Introduction & Interactive Learning

Karrie and Nicole share the basics of myo: what is a myofunctional disorder (OMD)? Potential impacts of OMDs over the lifespan. What are the primary goals of myofunctional therapy?

We then dive right in and get our first look at the pediatric and adult case studies.  Our overarching question is always "will they grow out of it or are they growing into it?

How do you even know where to start when every person we meet is so unique? When should you refer out to dental professionals, chiro, craniosacral...? How do we deal with oral habits that may interfere with successful outcomes? Using the ORPP Framework you will learn the tools to know when to start, when to wait when to refer and most importantly WHY you are doing what you are doing every step of the way. With this strong foundation you will develop the ability to clearly communicate goals and intended outcomes to your clients. RP is the key!
