Tongue-Tie Book by Alison Hazelbaker$69.00
Tongue-tie: Morphogenesis, Impact, Assessment and Treatment busts the myths associated with tongue-tie that prevent the re-establishment of routine assessment and treatment of the condition in the early postpartum period. Dr. Hazelbaker provides both the old and new evidence that enables clinicians to properly assess, diagnose and treat this genetic condition that creates so many problems with infant feeding, speech and orofacial development. Dr. Hazelbaker presents the embryological and physiological underpinnings of tongue-tie, discusses tongue-tie’s impact, provides information on assessment and classification then rounds out her book with research-based treatment options and guidelines. She weaves in her personal story, having been tongue-tied and being the mother of two formerly tongue-tied children, as well as the stories of many other families into the science, creating both a readable and credible book. Tongue-tie: Morphogenesis, Impact, Assessment and Treatment is the definitive book on tongue-tie that will serve health professionals and policy-makers worldwide as they endeavor to change the clinical culture surrounding this common but underappreciated problem.

The Sad Thumb Who Wanted to Become Unplugged$11.95
As therapists and parents, we often use images to help us tell stories. Although reading might be difficult for small kids, they easily relate to visual representations. Since its publication, the Sad Thumb has become an important therapeutic tool that easily explains to kids the damages of thumb sucking and other oral habits. Although we want the child to be responsible for his decision to quit, we don’t want him or her to feel guilty or judged. So we put the burden on our little thumb… asking “Thumb” to be the one explaining all the undesirable effects of a negative sucking habit. This edition has been updated with even more appealing pictures and realistic photographs. We proudly present to you the second edition of our Sad Thumb Book. We hope it serves you and your patients and children well.
