This book is a guide to the diagnosis and treatment of Ankyloglossia (tongue tie) and is the first publication to explore this subject comprehensively. This book explains that tongue tie is real and proceeds to recommend an assessment method to judge the severity of the condition and to determine when surgical intervention is warranted. The book covers a wide range of facts: from the historical antecedents of present day attitudes; through the largely unrecognized and often devastating effects of the disability; to the purely practical skills of diagnosis and management of the condition.

This publication will be an invaluable resource for parents of children with tongue tie as well as for speech-language pathologists, lactation consultants, dentists, doctors and other health professionals. The book is free of jargon and can easily be understood both by lay readers as well as by health professionals. Long overdue, the book is a first in its field and redresses decades of neglect of the subject.From the Author:
The purpose of this book is to enumerate the many factors involved with tongue tie, to describe presenting symptoms (assisted by the inclusion of 24 color plates), to show that surgery is appropriate in many cases and that the optimal management of tongue tie requires the services of both surgeon and speech-language pathologist in very specific ways. I have also introduced the Tongue tie Assessment Protocol (TAP) for assessing the severity of lingual limitation and its effects.
