Q: What do you recommend to begin doing reading on tongue thrust?
In terms of textbooks, I would recommend either of the following. The chapters about what to do in therapy for tongue thrust are basically the same in both of these books:
- Hanson, M. L., & Barrett, R. H. (1988) Fundamentals of orofacial myology. Springfield: Charles C. Thomas.
- Hanson, M. L., & Mason, R. M. (2003) Orofacial Myology: International Perspectives. Springfield: Charles C. Thomas.
