Our unique methods of oral-placement therapy have proven effective for clients with oral-motor deficits in therapeutic settings and we are excited to begin clinical trials to validate those results. We are working with researchers to provide practitioners and families with evidence-based therapeutic methods to address oral-motor aspects of speech, sensory and feeding deficits. Several research projects are underway addressing various aspects of TalkTools® techniques, tools and methodologies. We will make our findings available and submit our findings for peer review and we are collaborating with other professionals to expand our knowledge of oral-motor applications for sensory, feeding and speech development.
