I am working with a 7 year old with an anterior open bite. .....background: Referred to me for tongue thrust by her SLP who cannot make progress on her frontal /s/. This girl started with me 3 months ago in November. Evaluation revealed open mouth posturing, forward tongue resting position, drooling, tongue thrust on swallow, and large tonsils.
