One of my precious adult patients, Shay Lowe-Shull, writes about her experience with Myofunctional Therapy in her very successful blog Mix and Match Mama . Read her interesting story here. Dr. George Adams of Adams & McBride Orthodontics is Doctor 17 and Dr Honor Franklin at Honor Franklin Myofunctional & Speech Clinic is Doctor 18.
Welcome to Honor Franklin Myofunctional & Speech Clinic website – and my first blog!
I have wanted to create a website for a long time for two reasons. For one, I wanted to look like I am part of the 21st Century but, mainly, so I can update and share the most current and accurate information regarding Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders OMD’s or “tongue thrust“. If you have toured my website, you will see that, since 1977, I have specialized in the evaluation and treatment of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs) and articulation (speech) disorders in children, adolescents, and adults. In that time, I have provided help for a range of issues, including elimination of noxious oral habits such as thumbsucking and finger sucking, diagnosis and treatment of an incorrect resting tongue and lip posture and incorrect swallowing pattern (referred to in the past as “tongue thrust” or “tongue thrust swallowing“) and articulation (speech) disorders.
