SECOND TUESDAY MEETINGS – HAA EDUCATION SERIES
Please join us for this program, as Annika Suarez, MS, CCC-SLP Sunny Speech Inc., member of Healing Arts Alliance discusses “The impact of tethered oral tissues on daily life.”
Tethered oral tissue, or tongue-tie is a remnant of tissue in the midline between the undersurface of the tongue and the floor of the mouth that restricts normal tongue movement (IATP, 2016). Signs of tethered oral tissues include: tongue thrusting, excessive gagging while eating or sucking, breastfeeding issues, snoring, mouth breathing, reflux symptoms, baby colic, sleep apnea, neck pain and/or articulation errors. We will explore the impact that tethered oral tissues has on daily life, what the latest research has to say and how to treat them.
