The Down Syndrome Foundation of Florida was proud to host over 50 professionals in February 2011 at the Talk Tools Training course by Renee Roy-Hill.   TalkTools® brand and developed a series of user-friendly products to correspond with Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson's hierarchical approach to oral placement therapy. Many of these items, including the original Horn and Straw Hierarchies and Jaw Grading Bite Blocks, are now household names in the oral placement field and are available exclusively through TalkTools Therapy™. Through constant efforts to improve existing products and develop new tools to meet emerging needs, TalkTools Therapy™ has positioned itself as a primary worldwide source for oral placement, sensory, and feeding therapy supplies, and the popular brand TalkTools®.

Fortunately, local threapists are now available to our members / families with some of the same great knowledge and tools to work with our kiddos all year long with these great tools and methodology.
