“I can honestly say your “Tongue Sticks” are a tool I give all my new patients in my practice as part of my Orofacial Myology Therapy Program. The “Tongue Sticks” are a great neuromuscular stimulator that aid my patients in performing the exercises necessary to correct their tongue thrust swallow patterns. So happy to have found you!” Highest regards, Mary Ruma-Smith, BSDH, RDH, COM
“My name is Kristin. I am a practicing speech pathologist in Southern California. I recently had a new client referred to me with an incredibly involved tongue thrust and multiple articulation issues. I will call him M. Although I took a very extensive orofacial myofunctional course I felt unprepared to treat M. To give some background, M had already been to another provider who took the same training as I did and unfortunately his tongue thrust and articulation issues were unresolved. I felt a tremendous amount of pressure to do what was right, or perhaps refer M to another provider.
I scoured the internet and stumbled upon Janet’s program. I reached out to Janet, had a detailed conversation, and decided to take the plunge and purchase her program. I explained to M and his mother it was a new program for me so we would be learning together. We began the program; it took 9 weeks due to scheduling issues. In the middle of the program, I received a very heartfelt group text from M’s mother and father. In essence they thanked me profusely. They told me they just watched M do a presentation via virtual school and couldn’t believe the changes with his articulation and most importantly his confidence. Fast forward to the end of the program: M no longer had a tongue thrust and his articulation issues were remediated as well. Several weeks later, M’s mother called me after a dentist appointment to ask if it was ok to give her dentist my contact information. She relayed to me that the dentist wanted to know how M’s bite was remediated! M’s mom explained the treatment he received via Janet’s program along with my guidance. Although I loved the accolades, they all go to Janet since it is her program that helped M.
M happens to be a very handsome young man who was incredibly shy when I first encountered him. He had no desire for speech therapy, since his last experience did not go the way he had hoped. Fast forward to today, M’s confidence has been transformed. He carries himself differently, he stands tall with his shoulders back and his articulation is simply music to a speech therapists’ ears, especially his /r/ sound! To be honest, when his /r/ was remediated I was in a bit of shock, and made the poor young man say way too many /r/ words to convince me that this program treated his /r/ in addition to his tongue thrust. But it did!! Thank you, Janet, for sharing your 35 plus years of expertise. You are truly a blessing to more people than you know. Thanks to you I now possess the confidence to treat tongue thrust patients.” – Kristin Kleban M.S. CCC-SLP, Speech Language Pathologist
