WELCOME TO THE ASSOCIATION OF TONGUE-TIE PRACTITIONERS.
Whether you are a parent or a health care provider we hope you will find our website helpful in accessing all the information you need about tongue-tie and the support available.
The Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners (ATP) was set up in 2012 by a group of tongue-tie practitioners from the NHS and independent
sectors with the aims of:
- Increasing awareness about the effects of tongue-tie on babies especially with regard to both breast and bottle feeding.
- Supporting parents of tongue-tied babies to access safe and effective care.
- Assisting tongue-tie practitioners to provide safe and effective care through training and sharing knowledge and experience.
- Providing resources and education for healthcare providers who refer babies for tongue-tie division.
