Oral Dysfunction Can Lead to That? Discussions with an Orofacial Functional Specialist Autumn Henning

“Every unique symptom is a call to explore beyond the known territories of our field.” -Autumn Henning, MS, CCC-SLP, COM, IBCLC

☝️Who can argue with that?

In this podcast episode, Theresa welcomes Autumn Henning as her guest, who specializes in infant and pediatric feeding and orofacial functional disorders. They discuss the importance of practice-based evidence, collaboration, functioning vs functional therapy, and trying different treatment strategies. They emphasize the need to consider the bigger picture and connect different systems in the body. Finally, Theresa and Autumn touch on a component of therapy we’re all too familiar with: provider burnout and the significance of self-care.
