Describe concepts of oromyofunctional and oral placement disorder.
Describe the red flags associated with oromyofunctional disorders.
Identify the basics of differential diagnosis for articulation v. structural v. placement disorder.
Describe practical treatment techniques for clients with oromyofunctional and oral placement disorders.
