MORE (Motor, Respiration, and Eyes or vision) is an acronym for a model emphasizing the integration of the Suck/Swallow/Breathe (SSB) mechanisms with the rest of body functions. The SSB has been organized, practiced and refined throughout the last trimester of fetal development. It then refines after birth and becomes a muscle synergy. In this short webinar, an introduction to the mechanics, structures, and functions of the SSB will be explored and related to Oral Motor control, Respiratory control, Postural control, Gross and Fine Motor control and Postural Development. Assessment and treatment planning that can impact many areas of function from infancy to geriatrics will be briefly explored in this course.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Discuss the MORE concept and its relationship to at least 2 areas of typical development.
Identify at least 3 assessment and treatment strategies.
15 minutes: The MORE Concept
15 minutes: Relationships to function
30 minutes: Assessment & treatment

Following completion of the entire course including the course survey, the participant will be issued a course completion certificate.
