Ms. Harbour-Tonn enjoys working with children and adults who stutter. She employs traditional fluency modification and shaping and a cognitive behavioral approach. She also provides therapy to children and adults with Down syndrome, Autism spectrum disorder, developmental delays, oral motor disorders, and voice disorders. Ms. Harbour-Tonn offers Talk Tools Oral Placement Therapy, a tactile-sensory approach to speech therapy, and Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets (PROMPT), a tactually grounded sensori-motor and cognitive-linguistic approach and technique for treating motor speech disorders.
Ms. Harbour-Tonn performs Modified Barium Swallow Studies to assess oral, pharyngeal, and cervical esophageal abnormalities.
