Presented by Stephanie Eber, Speech Pathologist

Suitable for parents of children aged 0-12 years and professionals who work with children in this age group (teachers, therapists, dentists, doctors).

There has been a lot of talk recently amongst parents as well as service providers about tongue ties, so we want to demystify this area and bring awareness about what tongue (and lip) ties are, what impact they have on children, and whether they should be released. 

Participants can expect to gain the following knowledge:

  • Understand what tongue and lip ties are
  • Understand the effect of a tongue and lip restriction on the growth and development of childrens’ facial muscles, dentition, learning, speech, sleep and health
  • Recognise when you would consider having the ties released
  • Understand more about the procedure to release the tongue and/or lip restriction

If you have any questions about tongue ties, please contact Stephanie Eber at
