Introduction [excerpt]. Data on the habituation period needed for developing an optimal oral rest posture in individuals presenting with non-tongue thrust orofacial/speech/voice disorders is lacking. Jt was hypothesized that a target desirable oral rest posture could be established in adults within approximately three weeks, but that this would take children a lengthier period of time. The following is a summary of preliminary obseNations obtained from 1 O adult clients and 1 O pediatric clients on a hospital speech pathologist's outpatient caseload.
