What People Are Saying About the Chatterton School Based MyoProgram™

"I came into the Chatterton MyoProgram™ training with a background in tongue thrust therapy. Following the training, I realized how many gaps in knowledge I was truly missing. I left the training with a clear, sequenced, step by step protocol that can easily be implemented from evaluation to treatment. Completing this training has truly given me a passion for orofacial myofunctional disorders!"

Becky, MS, CCC-SLP

"Chatterton MyoProgram™ sets the patient and therapist up for success. The program is straightforward and easy to individualize. The patient is allowed to learn at a comfortable pace, with modifications to ensure no task is too difficult. I have seen many patients make greater strides in 6 months than others who have been in therapy for years. This course has reignited my love for what I do."

Lyndsey, MS, CCC-SLP

"I left Rian and Jaimee's training feeling assured that I can not only identify orofacial myofunctional disorders in my patients, but can also guide them through the steps in the Chatterton MyoProgram™. The resources and the client app are a true game changer for my practice."

Shelly, MS, CCC-SLP

Built Upon Galen Peachey’s Foundational Protocol

Galen Peachey, one of the founding members of the International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM), opened the first Idaho-based orofacial myology practice in Boise in 1971. Throughout his years of practice, Galen developed an assessment protocol to evaluate the presence of undifferentiated lingual mandibular movements and established a therapeutics protocol to effectively treat them. 

In 2013, Galen’s Boise-based clinic was purchased by Rian Chatterton, who has continued to use Galen’s foundational framework for establishing lingual mandibular differentiation, correct mouth resting posture, and swallowing patterns and developed them further into the Chatterton MyoProgram™. This program is used on patients every day at the Center for Orofacial Myology in Boise, Idaho, and has helped hundreds of clients with orofacial myofunctional disorders. 

For the first time ever, the Chatterton MyoProgram™ is available for clinicians outside of the Center for Orofacial Myology to learn and implement into their own orofacial myofunctional practice.
