What is F.O.T.T?

F.O.T.T. (Facial-Oral Tract Therapy), developed by ARCOS Director Kay Coombes, provides a structured way to assess and treat disturbances in one or more of the following:

  • Facial expression
  • Movement of the jaw for eating and articulation
  • Breathing
  • Swallowing
  • Voice

These difficulties occur in a range of conditions and vary in severity. Used by therapists, nurses and relatives, F.O.T.T is a comprehensive approach, focusing on 4 main areas of nutrition, oral hygiene, non-verbal communication and speech. in the context of the whole body. F.O.T.T. courses are held throughout the UK, mainland Europe, Scandinavia and in Japan. For further information on courses available, please contact ARCOS.
