About the Event
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.
