Carryover—the wonderful experience of seeing a child consistently use his or her newly acquired swallow or speech sounds--isn’t easy.

 

Sad, but true, some children remain in therapy longer than they should.  Even when the child can do his "new swallow" or say his “new sound”, he fails to progress into the habitual level.  Ugh.  It’s frustrating for everyone.  So what can be done?

 

Yes, I have a suggestion, and it’s a good one, too.  In fact, I’d go so far as to say that it’s “The Key to Carryover”.

 

There is a little-known, highly effective solution that’s easy to integrate into therapy.  It centers on what the tongue is doing—when it’s doing nothing!

 

How can this be helpful?  Because of one critical principle:  where the tongue rests is where it works.  When the tongue learns to comfortably rest on top in “the function zone”, it can easily access all speech sounds and swallowing maneuvers.

 

The Key to Carryover is an easy-to-teach action plan that provides full analysis, interpretation, and step-by-step therapy that instills the new resting postures for consistent and correct swallowing and speech positioning, production and control.  This aperback book is 111 pages.
