Event Details

Course Information

The Foundation Course examines the research, current approaches, paradigms and results of comprehensive treatment or tethered oral tissue.

This course will provide an in-depth foundation on the identification, diagnosis, treatment, aftercare and life-long effects of lip and tongue ties.

Following the Foundation Course, practitioners will be able to confidently determine whether an oral restriction is impacting breastfeeding, eating, speech, breathing and posture. They will be able to professionally advise patients and parents on an appropriate course of action at various life stages.

The role of each member of a multi-disciplinary team will be covered and how overall function can be restored and enhanced through effective treatment and aftercare.

The Foundation Course includes a downloadable comprehensive 110-page workbook produced by the Tongue Tie Institute which provides extensive foundation information and scholarly references.

This book is an essential companion for any health practitioner working to address oral restrictions and is only available to participants of the Foundation Course.

The Foundation Course is a prerequisite for Advanced Courses such as the Children & Adults courses. The Children & Adults course is also available in April 2020 and can be purchased together with the Foundation Course as a discounted package.
