Course Description

Many infants have difficulty with sucking and swallowing, causing issues in effectively breastfeeding, feeding, swallowing, and speech.  Tongue and lip ties can affect feeding as well as oromotor development and speech.  Effective treatment varies for infants and children. 

This internet (live) event will address osteopathic clinicians’, as well as other practicing clinicians’, needs to improve knowledge, competence and/or performance for the treatment of tongue ties by leveraging the principles of osteopathic medicine.
