Plot the TOT

As healthcare providers wanting rapid results to help our patients, a synchronized team approach is the best way to achieve that. Helping patients often requires multiple specialists to work together for best outcomes. Our collaborative and methodical approach allows us to view the whole patient and implement comprehensive care. This approach provides more predictable results and outcomes, while navigating the topography of TOTs in the healthcare community.  See implementation of the E3 Model of Care® with patients (infant, child, and adult) on their journey from initial evaluation, education, and execution of a treatment plan.  Real patients, real evaluations, real surgeries in this course!  This course is an advanced specialty training that is targeted for Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Orofacial Myofunctional Therapists, Lactation Consultants, Physicians and Dentists.
