Oral Placement therapy-  WHAT IS OPT?

Oral Placement Therapy (OPT) is a hierarchical based approach used to feeding skills, reduce drooling, tongue thrust and improve speech clarity in individuals of all ages developmental / neurological difficulties.

It uses combination of tactile-sensory-motor approach, which provides a comprehensive solution to feeding, drooling and speech clarity difficulties. OPT is used to improve sensory motor awareness in oral cavity, dissociation of jaw, tongue and lips, grading and direction of movement, stability ( Jaw), and muscle memory; all of these are fundamental for the development of feeding skills and speech clarity.
