Complex case inevitably present themselves to clinicians. The complex patterns in Orofacial
myofunctional disorders (OMD's) related to movement patterns and postures of the face
mouth, lips, or jaw are often not well-recognized or understood.
Mary Billings has been working with, mentoring, and developing programs to teach healthcare
professionals more about the impact of these disorders since 2007. As the first Mentoring Chair
appointed by the International Association of Orofacial Myology, Mary built a strong network for her
Mentoring Committee in an effort to offer suggestions and advice to clinicians who often became
"stuck" in their therapeutic plans. In addition, Mary has run her own speech pathology private practice
for 25+ years treating virtually all ages and disorders across the spectrum.
After years of receiving requests, Mary is now offering mentoring packages to clinicians hoping to
learn more about OMD's and how to effectively treat them.
