Program Description
This full-day workshop, which will be on Friday, October 17, 2014 on our Rockville Centre campus, is designed to provide therapists with the necessary theoretical and functional information regarding the respiratory/Phonatory system. In addition, this workshop will offer practical guidelines regarding the assessment and treatment of the respiratory/Phonatory problems of developmentally impaired children.

A model for therapeutic intervention will be presented which includes the "how to's" of helping our clients improve.

This practically oriented workshop takes the facts learned in school and translates them into our therapy routines.

A review of your basic anatomy and physiology of the speech mechanism prior to course attendance would be helpful..

Learner Outcomes
At the end of this program participants will be able to :

1. Describe the normal and abnormal components of movement that influence the development of respiration/phonation.
2. Describe the Kinesiology of respiration/phonation.
3. Understand the process of speech breathing and how it is affected by abnormal muscle tone and posture.
4. Carry out treatment intervention strategies to improve control of sound production.
