“I have a Mini-Residency in which I teach doctors from all over the world about Biobloc Orthotropic treatment to develop the entire lower face forward. They lecture as part of one of the four sessions in this Mini-Residency, and I strongly urge each doctor taking my course to either take their course to learn what they do or have one of their team members do so. Our success in treating with Biobloc Orthotropics is enhanced when we combine a strong myofunctional component to the therapy.”

– William M. Hang, D.D.S., M.S.D

“I am able to better understand the deficits my patients have which helps me treat the causes of their disorders, not just the symptoms. Through utilization of your therapeutic programs and exercises, I have made significant positive improvements in my patients overall speech intelligibility without even using articulation therapy. My patient’s parents are thrilled because their children can eat a wider variety of healthy foods without having fights at the dinner table. My patients are more confident and one has even opened a business and has invited me to hear her speech at her grand opening event next week.”

– Maureen Grady Cooney, Speech Pathologist

“I heard Joy Moeller speak on the topic of Myofunctional Therapy at a seminar sponsored by the ADHA. I was impressed by Joy’s informative presentation, so I attended the 4 day course titled “Introductory Myofunctional Therapy” in Phoenix, Arizona in February of 2013. I had an outstanding experience at The Academy of Myofunctional Therapy. The course highlighted the health benefits resulting from Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy. During the Course, I learned about this exciting therapy that focuses on various pathologies involving the face, head, and neck. Now I can begin treating patients who demonstrate improper breathing, chewing and swallowing. Thank you Joy, Licia and Marc for your enthusiastic commitment to teaching this vital, life changing therapy.”

“I attended my first course, the Intro course, with the AOMT 5 years ago; I was able to successfully practice Myofunctional Therapy as soon as I got home with my course materials. AOMT courses are the most informative and comprehensive that I attend concerning sleep and airway. Teaching staff come from many different medical disciplines and are at the top of their field. I highly recommend the AOMT.”

-Beth Sohail, MyoFunctional Associates of GA

“It is so important for SLP’s to be able to assess and treat orofacial myofunctional disorders. We have to address this underlying issue to be successful in providing a holistic approach to treatment. The Intro course has especially helped me better assess the oral motor mechanism of the articulators and then provide the right course of treatment. Samantha is a wonderful and knowledgeable instructor who continues to support my learning even after course completion.”

-Sehrish Datoo, SLP

“This course was exceptional and well designed to train on the newest ideas and treatment of myofuntional therapy. If anyone is looking for a well balanced course with instructors that truly care about the field, this is for you.”

“Wonderful course! Samantha is full of knowledge! Delivers material well and keeps students engaged in learning. Hands on learning really helps students grasp the concept! Loved it!”

“Yes. Passionate and dedicated instruction! Although this content is complex it was presented in a manageable and digestible way.”

“I would definitely recommend this course for other SLP’s to take. It is so important to learn about myofunctional disorders as we see these disorders on a daily in our practice. The instructors are experts in the area and are well informed and involved with the leading research happening in this field.”

“You will truly look at your patients from a different lens after this course!”

“The information about the tongue and the relationship to oral motor and overall development go far beyond what is learned in speech pathology graduate school. I will be assessing children’s oral motor skills in a whole new light!”
