You'll Learn How To
Systematically assess oral reflexes
Learn how to assess and understand a newborn's intraoral reflexes in a systematic and meaningful way so you can get a more complete understanding about their oral function.
Improve reflexive response and track progress
Learn to how engage a newborn's reflexes to help develop oral function and how to use my patent pending CORE™ assessment tool to be able to track improvement, so you'll know when you are on the right track, and get access to my library library with exercises to help improve function.
Use reflexes to understand readiness for a surgical release.
Learn how to use a baby's oral reflexes as a guide to understanding what a baby's tongue mobility means, how to gauge release readiness and necessity from a reflexive perspective, and when it's time to refer out to another provider.
Take the guesswork out of supporting oral function.
Reflexes are easy to stimulate, see and understand, and this makes them ideal for supporting oral function, even for the sleep-deprived families you support. Learning how to work with reflexes will change how you practice and give you the clarity you need to feel confident in assessing and communicating oral function.
"Avery's systematic approach to assessing oral function is brilliant."
I LOVE Avery's Reflex Based Oral Function scoring system. Some people intuitively 'know' what area needs work and how to do it. For those who aren't as intuitive or who need a way to share their assessment with other practitioners, Avery's systematic approach to assessing oral function is brilliant.
And I'm a lactation consultant and new parent educator on a mission to change how we support families, and that means making it easier for passionate professionals to do their jobs, sustainably, with maximum impact.
I'm also an educator by training and I'm passionate about not just delivering content that matters, but presenting it in a way that helps you learn.
This course combines what I have discovered about oral reflexes after experimenting with countless babies in my practice and my patent-pending assessment tools with an approach to help you be able to integrate the content into your practice, to give you the best of both worlds.

"This course is a game changer!"
Having a concrete method to help determine when a baby is ready for a release procedure has been a missing link in my practice. The tools presented in this class will be incredibly useful in both helping me determine optimal timing of release, and helping families understand the timeline. The tools will also be a wonderful way to help families observe their baby’s progress..
