Our Mission is to provide the “Missing Link” to those who work or live with individuals impacted by stress, neurodevelopmental or learning challenges.
Our Vision is To see all of those who are impacted by stress, neurodevelopmental and learning challenges experience hope, recovery, and restoration.
The MNRI® Oral-Facial Motor Education Clinic is a highly specialized educational clinic for infants and children struggling with the development of oral motor functions. Age-expected oral motor functions include breathing, swallowing, eating, facial expression, and talking. Proper development of oral motor functions is essential for cognition and learning.
MNRI® Oral-Facial Motor Education Clinic is a 4-day, 4-hours each day program (total 16 hours). Participating children will receive fundamental MNRI® exercises designed to restore and facilitate maturation of oral-facial and other associated motor reflexes. Each day, an experienced MNRI® Core specialist and a qualified Speech-Language Pathologist will provide an oral motor-specific control and learning session for each child. There will also be 2 evening education sessions on information supporting oral feeding and related topics. Children who may benefit from this specialized educational clinic include those with limited eating skills, dependent on feeding tubes, and/or delayed communication development.
We understand that families may want to optimize their time during MNRI® Oral-Facial Motor Education Clinic. Children attending MNRI® Oral-Facial Motor Education Clinic may sign up for additional MNRI® Clinic hours after 3pm, pending clinic hour and specialist availability.
MNRI Family Conferences are staffed by a diverse field of professionals who have been certified as Core Specialists. Many of these professionals run their own practice in addition to assisting us. As such, some conferences may have a limited number of staff.
In order to provide the best service possible for our families, we limit the ratio of Client to Specialist to 1|1.
With our desire to maintain a high level of service, cancellation of registrants may occur if there are not enough Staff. Registrants will be informed of this 10 days before the event takes place. If SMEI is forced to cancel any registrants, a full refund of the conference fees will be given. Cancellations will be offered first on a voluntary basis. If there are not enough volunteers, cancellation protocol will be enacted starting with the most recent registrants.
Full refunds will be given for registration cancellation up to 21 days prior to the conference.
A 25% administration charge will be retained for cancellation 11-20 days prior to the conference.
Cancellation within 10 days of the conference is non-refundable due to the financial commitments that the organization has made to hotels, travel expenses and salaries of Core Specialists from around the world.
We recommend that attendees who will be flying do not purchase their flight until after the 10-day window has elapsed to avoid a nonrefundable circumstance with the airline. SMEI is not liable for any ticket costs related to the course being canceled. SMEI is not liable for any costs related to transportation (airline tickets, train, taxi, etc) due to the cancellation of an event.
* A 2.5% transaction fee (processing fee) will be withheld on all refunds that were processed using credit card/PayPal. If a participant wishes the refund to be paid directly to their account via credit card/PayPal, PayPal may also charge the participant an additional 2.5% transaction fee (processing fee). Refund by check is available upon request.
For cancellation and refund requests related to health issues, family tragedy or other significant life events please contact us.
