The author, Janet Bennett, M.Ed., CCC-SLP, has a Master’s degree in Speech Pathology and has been a licensed Speech Pathologist for over 40 years. She has treated Tongue Thrust exclusively since 1994.
In the online videos, you will see her treating someone for all seven lessons. Your tongue will get stronger and feel more comfortable in your mouth, and if you snore, it should gradually get quieter and quieter. As your tongue muscles get stronger due to you doing the exercises, more changes should occur.
The tongue exercises vary weekly but take 15-20 minutes twice daily. Most of them can be performed while driving to work, reading, watching TV, or vacuuming.
There is an option to meet with the speech pathologist, Janet, over Zoom video for a consultation before starting.
It is recommended for ages 8 and over. A younger child may be able to perform the exercises, depending on their maturity.
