Chatterton MyoProgram™ Credentialing Course

Learn to Use the Chatterton MyoProgram™  With Your Clients

More than Just a Certification

The Chatterton MyoProgram™ is a 10 lesson protocol that helps you take your clients from diagnosis of orofacial myofunctional disorder (OMD) through a comprehensive therapy plan, and guide them to successful generalization.

The Chatterton MyoProgram™ credentialing course provides 3 days of hands-on training to fully prepare you to use the Chatterton MyoProgram™ with your clients. Throughout this course, you will learn how to properly identify orofacial myofunctional disorders, how to conduct a full orofacial myofunctional evaluation, and how to successfully lead your client through the 10 step program. You will leave this course ready to treat your first OMD client!

All participants will have access to the program resources, including evaluation forms, clinician and client protocols, and all 10 therapy lessons within the Chatterton MyoProgram™, for 24 months after the completion of the course.

Participants who select the Myo Proficient or Myo Mastered course packages will also receive continued mentorship throughout their first year as a credentialed Chatterton MyoProgram™ therapist.
