Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) is a specialized form of speech therapy that focuses on the proper development and function of the muscles in the face, mouth, and throat. Here are some benefits of OMT for a child's speech and feeding development:

  • Improved chewing and swallowing abilities, leading to better nutrition and reduced risk of choking and aspiration

  • Corrected tongue and lip placement, improving speech sound production and reducing speech disorders such as lisps and interdental sounds
