Tongue Tie and Palate Evaluation Procedures


Join the Waitlist

This 12 week online course is designed to provide you with a deep understanding of the importance of properly evaluating tongue-ties or TOTs and its functional implications on palate growth and development.  We will give you specific tools and evaluation protocols to determine the functional implications of tongue-tie and palate growth patterns as well as the tools to make cranial corrections to support normal growth and development.

Tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, is a condition in which the lingual frenulum, the tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth, is abnormally tight or short. This can significantly impact an individual's ability to speak, eat/nurse, swallow, breathe properly as well as impair proper cranial bone growth patterns. Understanding the assessment and management of tongue-tie is essential for healthcare professionals working with patients who may be affected by this condition.

In addition to tongue-tie, the evaluation of the palate plays a vital role in evaluating and treating various speech, breathing, eating, and swallowing disorders. The palate consists of the hard and soft tissues at the roof of the mouth. This course will delve into the techniques and procedures used to assess the structure and function of the palate, enabling you to better evaluate and address issues related to its functioning.

Throughout this course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the tongue and palate, the various types and classifications of tongue-tie, and the impact these conditions can have on function and development. You will also explore specific evaluation techniques that will aid in diagnosing and evaluating and managing tongue-tie and palate-related concerns.

We will guide you through interactive modules, presentations, case studies, and practical demonstrations to enhance your learning experience. You will have the opportunity to develop your skills in tongue-tie and palate evaluation through hands-on exercises and calls to action (CTA), allowing you to apply your knowledge and gain confidence in your abilities.

By the end of this course, you will possess the knowledge and skills necessary to perform thorough tongue-tie and palate evaluations, make informed decisions about appropriate treatment options, and collaborate effectively with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care to patients.

This online course will equip you with the tools and knowledge needed to excel in the assessment and management of tongue-tie and palate-related concerns. Join us on this exciting learning journey and take a significant step towards enhancing your professional practice!
