Orofacial Myology

Our speech-language pathology team specializes in Orofacial Myology which is the study of the structures and function of the face and mouth. We collaborate with doctors, dentists, orthodontists, and ENTs to treat Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders. We offer lip and tongue-tie identification in infants, children, and adults, as well as orofacial myofunctional therapy to help clients:

  • Pay closer attention to their mouth and facial movements
  • Know where their tongue and mouth muscles are when they speak, drink, and eat
  • Produce sounds more clearly
  • Change how they chew and swallow

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy treats the whole person. As occupational therapists, we look at the individual’s participation while engaging in daily routines, such as play, activities of daily living, education, leisure, and social interactions.

Early Intervention

Children who are under three-years of age who are evaluated for direct therapy services will be referred to Early Intervention services, which can be accessed through the Department of Human Services. This may provide additional opportunities to support their child’s development, as well as connect them with other services such as respite care or medical assistance. When Anne Carlsen Early Interventionists and direct therapists treat the same child, the family and child will benefit from the ongoing collaboration across all of the child’s natural environments.
