Course Webinar: The Feeding/Oral-Motor/Speech Connection: Diagnosing and Treatment

Course description: In this course, we explore how structure and motor function has an impact on speech and language development. We cover what red flags might indicate a problem beyond a general speech and language delay in the pediatric population. We discuss how we can begin to differentially diagnose developmental delays from motor speech disorders, even before our client may be using verbal communication.

Presented by Renee Roy Hill M.S., CCC-SLP

Date: Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Time: 2 pm pacific | 3 pm mountain | 4 pm central | 5 pm eastern
