Chatterton School Based Myo Community

So many SLPs completed their undergraduate and graduate programs without learning about orofacial myofunctional disorders.  They are now working to fill in the gaps of their education as they are becoming aware of the prevalence of OMDs and the impact they are having on students.  Join a community of school-based Speech-Language Pathologists all looking to build an orofacial myofunctional knowledge base and better meet their students’ needs!

What People Are Saying About School-Based Myo

"As a school-based SLP I see many students who fit this profile. I have felt frustrated with my student's lack of progress at times and wondered if I wasn't providing appropriate therapy. I think my SLP colleagues in the schools would benefit from this knowledge."

"I feel much more confident in my screening for OMD as well as in my approach to be up-front with parents. Truly, this was an excellent course."

"There is little to no instruction in the majority of graduate programs on this topic and school based SLPs need tools to make appropriate recommendations so that all students have an opportunity to achieve their maximum communication potential."

"Jaimee did a wonderful job teaching this class. This was so informative and made me feel more confident in screening students for OMD and making appropriate referrals. I think it covers information we not provided in graduate school that is very needed."

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
