“Sleep Disorders are in Your Face”

Sharon Moore is a Speech Pathologist and Myofunctional Practitioner, with 37 years clinical experience across a wide range of communication and swallowing disorders. She has worked in diverse clinical settings in Australia and London.

Currently she runs a Private Practice in Canberra, servicing referrals from medical and dental specialists for patients of all ages. The integration of Orofacial Myofunctional principles into traditional Speech Pathology work allows a unique approach to managing disorders of the upper airway; including breathing, swallowing, phonation, resonance, and speech.

Sharon has a special interest in early identification of craniofacial growth anomalies in non-syndromic children, airway obstruction in sleep disorders, and concomitant orofacial dysfunctions. Recently, acknowledgement within medical circles of the role of myofunctional therapy in management of sleep disorders hails a new era of relevance for muscle re-education in the upper airway, and affirmation of her chosen clinical direction. She believes that there has never been a more important time for medical, dental, and allied health colleagues to work as a team in the light of known significant health morbidities of sleep disorders in all ages.

Sharon maintains active membership of a number of organisations that support her clinical work including LSA, AACP, SPA, AVA, AAMS, IPSA, and WSS. She maintains active connections internationally with clinicians who have shared clinical interest in craniofacial growth, sleep disorders, and oro-facial structure and function.
