- We are a non-for-profit organisation here to represent myofunctional therapy in Australia.
- We are here to help guide professionals towards training opportunities and develop this modality nationally.
- We are here to assist the community by improving access to highly trained professionals.
Our members are qualified and experienced health professionals who are actively providing myofuntional therapy services.
Our association is open to all health professionals with an interest in oro-myofunctional sciences.
As myofunctional therapy is not a qualification but a post graduate field of study, our members register using their formal qualification.
To register you must have an Australian Health Professionals Regulation Agency (AHPRA) number or Speech Pathology Australia (SPA) number. Providing therapy with no formal qualifications could be potentially damaging to our field and may not be covered by insurance. Health professionals should consider holding separate professional indemnity insurance to deliver oro-myofunctional therapy services.
There are currently a number of institutions offering courses in the field of oro-myofunctional sciences. If you are new to this modality, the best place is to start with a 28 hour introductory course. These are foundations courses that are a great starting point.
As we are here to support Australian talent, we encourage you to find a local trainer. Look for education that is delivered by experienced health professionals who are experienced in hands on treatment. Learn from experienced therapists.
Once you have completed your introductory course, continuing education is essential to continue skill development. We list courses on our site and but one of the best ways to learn is to connect with other therapists. Our community is here to help connect professionals, so please consider becoming a part of our network.
We are here to help and support you as a health professional. The AAOM is a trusted source of information.
