Course Description

The so called ‘simple’ frontal lisp isn’t always simple, and neither is the lateral, that’s for sure. Sometimes they’re quite challenging. In this extensive three-hour course therapy is emphasized, from beginning to end, including carryover for both the frontal and lateral sibilants. In some cases, there are accompanying factors that make complete remediation difficult.  We’ll cover techniques for cases that have abnormal oral resting postures, or excessively large tonsils, or even an anterior open bite.  You’ll learn to analyze these oral obstructers, and more, and how to do compensation therapy to work with them and around them.


All 1-3 hour courses included for $89 / Year
