A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN SOLVE ALL YOUR MYOFUNCTIONAL CONCERNS
Orofacial Myology, formerly known as myofunctional therapy, is described as “the study and treatment of the oral and facial muscles as they relate to speech, dentition, chewing/bolus collection, swallowing, and overall mental and physical health.” (Sandra R. Holtzman)
Neo-Health Services is the largest provider for orofacial myology training and we are a continuing education provider for ASHA and AGD/PACE. We prepare speech-language pathologists, dentists and dental hygienists to evaluate, diagnose, and treat orofacial myology disorders. Among the areas covered are tongue tie (ankyloglossia) determination, oral habit elimination such as thumb sucking, the chewing and swallowing process in detail, “tongue thrust,” airway concerns, speech articulation connections, relationship to orthodontics, and much more.
We are proud to prepare our students using our highly regarded Myo Manual Treatment Program, used throughout the world in all types of facilities. Since there are no licensing or regulatory associations that oversee practitioners of orofacial myology, Neo-Health Services strives to ensure that our students can start working competently right after the training course, and be adequately prepared to continue the path to Qualification.
