Quoted From: https://oregonorofacial.com/orofacial-myofunctional-therapy/

"Orofacial myofunctional disorders (OMDs) are patterns involving oral and orofacial musculature that interfere with normal growth, development or function of orofacial structures. While children are most often treated for OMDs, these can also be found in adolescents and adults. OMDs can co-occur with swallowing and speech disorders and may the primary contributing factor. Orofacial Myofunctional Therapists identify and provide therapy designed to eliminate maladaptive behaviors so that you or your child can breathe, eat, speak, and sleep freely."
