    Functional Assessment & Remediation of Tethered Oral Tissues - Lori Overland, MS, CCC-SLP, NDT


    This course explores the functional assessment of TOTs and reviews current well-respected assessment tools which describe structure. With these tools, Lori and Robyn have developed the Merkel-Walsh & Overland TOTs Protocol  which looks at structure, oral motor function, pre-feeding, feeding and speech. Participants will learn to use this tool to identify the possible need for a TOTs referral, and the functional impact this diagnosis may have on feeding and speech. Their unique style of “task analysis” is a practical strategy for assessment that is immediately carried over into developing a treatment program for neuro-muscular re-education.

    Participants will learn through the concept of task analysis the specific ways in which TOTs impacts the oral motor and oral placement skills for breast, bottle, cup, straw and solid feedings in addition to speech sound production. Videos and live practicums with attendee participation will provide therapeutic intervention tasks that participants can implement with their clients immediately. The importance of pre and post-surgical therapy will be discussed, and surgical techniques will be explored so that therapists may be have a better understanding of the current research across disciplines on an international level.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • List three forms of TOTs.
    • Identify at least 3-5 functional impacts of TOTs on feeding skills.
    • List at least 3 speech sounds that may be affected by TOTS.
    • List at least 2 professionals that should be consulted if TOTs is suspected after a functional assessment.


    Instruction Level: Intermediate. The learning outcomes and objectives are relevant for inter-professional practice and education (IEP) programs; and can be applied across the client's lifespan in a variety of settings (schools, private practice, clinics/hospitals)

    NOTE: This course welcomes IBCLC, dentists, surgeons, ENTs, occupational therapists, and RDHs -- however, we caution that only licensed professionals with Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and/or feeding therapy within their scope of practice provide direct services.


    Knee 2020 - Terry Malone, PT, MSPT, EdD, ATC, FAPTA


    This course will address the multiplicity of problems confronting the clinician dealing with rehabilitation of the knee.  Patients with these pathologies demand an "attention to detail" which is frequently not provided.  This course will attempt to "contextualize" the learner to the historical development of the majority of commonplace procedures utilized in the clinic today through historical presentation, as well as developing an appreciation of the relevant literature of yesterday and today.  It is hoped that personal opinions will be shared by participants, thus providing a fertile garden for exchange.  The course is designed to allow a rich appreciation for the management of selected knee conditions.

    Instructional level: Intermediate

    Recommended audience: PTs, PTAs, ATCs


    Upon completion, the learner will:

    1. Have been exposed to the components of the knee examination sequence.
    2. Be aware of the history and present thought regarding anterior and posterior cruciate ligament surgery, total knee surgery and rehabilitation of each.
    3. Have seen demonstrated special techniques to be applied for selected problems related to immobility and capsular restrictions.
    4. Have seen a description of the differences in extensor mechanism rehabilitation related to instability, friction, tension and compression.
    5. Have been presented the forms of meniscal surgery and the specifics of rehabilitation related to each.
    6. Have been presented the general concepts for return to play decision making.
