Welcome to Understanding Tongue-tie: The complexities of definition and diagnosis
Welcome to this blended learning programme: Understanding Tongue-tie: The Complexities of Definition and Diagnosis.
This course is taught at two levels:
Foundation: Supporting Families with Baby Tongue-tie Certificate
Advanced: The Advanced Tongue-tie Assessor Award.
The unique format of this training gives you flexible and accessible online course materials, plus an opportunity to get involved with live discussions on the topics being studied, facilitated by Dee Bell RM, IBCLC and Specialist Tongue-tie Practitioner to get your questions answered in the live group sessions.
We have created this course for dedicated practitioners to deepen their knowledge and understanding around assessing for and treating tongue-tie in infants. Our aim is for you to gain an in-depth knowledge and a greater awareness of the different perspectives of other professions and professionals so that you can better support the families in your care.
Our mission is to create a community where families are better supported with their infant feeding choices and Perinatal Practitioners and Health Professionals are better informed on how to do this.
Our aim is for you to deepen your understanding around tongue-tie and how this can impact infant feeding choices, and how you can personally affect health outcomes for generations to come.
The programme is taught via the use of online materials, workbook completion and interactive live discussions, in addition to your own research.
If you are taking the Advanced level Programme: Tongue-tie Assessor Award then you will also attend a days training with Dee at the Infant Feeding and Tongue-tie Clinic and be required to carry out two case studies.
