Interdisciplinary Teaming in Patient Care


One the greatest joys of being a speech language pathologist and orofacial myofunctional therapist is the opportunity to work with professionals from a variety of disciplines. Speech, language, feeding and Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy often complement other treatments patients are receiving. I enjoy learning from my colleagues, discovering new ways to provide more effective patient care and make important referrals when necessary. I firmly believe that just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an integrated team to provide excellent patient care.

With patient consent, I frequently collaborate with the following professionals:

  • Dentists
  • Orthodontists
  • Otolaryngologists (ENTs)
  • Developmental Pediatricians
  • Osteopathic Physicians
  • Psychologists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Sleep Specialists
  • Breathing Specialists
  • Nutritionists/Dietitians
  • Gastroenterologists
