Do you think its a good idea to do your program with her even if she is not a tongue thruster? How do I incorporate speech and at what point ?

Although she tends to have a rounded tongue in the mid portion. I would like to see the tongue have more of flat table appearance I believe. I suspect she is gaining control of some of the intrinsic muscles but not all.

Post frenectomy, the goals include being able to move the tongue horizontally (in and out) without touching the lower lip or teeth or seeing any lip involvement. I recommend 3Way Mouth Props as the tool to keep the mandible stable as the client learns the movement/excursion. Then the prop is slowly removed. Also, the client should be able to move from lip corner to lip corner, again without any extraneous mandibular movement.
