Kids Communicate Therapy Dogs leave paw prints
in so many childrens' hearts every day!
Meet Our Therapy Dogs!
We are proud to have three wonderful therapy dogs that are eager to be a part of our sessions!
The benefits of pet assisted therapy are well documented. The special bond between kids and pets often acts as a catalyst, keeping them engaged and actively participating during therapy sessions. Children feel safe, relaxed, and confident when interacting with pets, and often express themselves better than with other children or adults.
We provide comprehensive Orofacial Myofunctional therapy programs for the treatment of Myofunctional Disorders in children and adults. All programs are created by a Certified Orofacial Myologist COM®. At Hoboken Myo we continually see that improving function in the muscles of the face and mouth can have a positive impact on whole body wellness.
Therapy targets include:
• Breathing reeducation
• Promoting ideal resting oral posture
• Tongue and lip ties / TOTS - tethered oral tissues
• Elimination of oral habits
• Supporting patients through Orthodontistry
• Muscle balance to alleviate pain and dysfunction in patients with Temporomandibular Joint Disorders
"I don’t have enough words of praise for Lauren and her work as an outstanding speech/feeding/oromyofunctional therapist. Lauren is a professional of the highest ethics and standards and is always at the top of my list to refer families in the Hoboken area too. She is so very kind, compassionate and empathetic. She goes above and beyond to help her clients achieve their potentials. Lauren is held in the highest regard by her clients, families as well as professional colleagues. I can not recommend her enough for any family looking for speech and feeding services."
