RESEARCH & EVIDENCE
PIOMI is the only preterm oral motor intervention that has been tested for intervention fidelity based on a formal training program to ensure it is easily taught and can be consistently and reliably performed. Fidelity of an intervention is paramount to the validity of study outcomes, and to compare evidence across international studies.
Built for discovery, Bepress is a cloud-based open-source information platform connecting educators, researchers and institutions with professional research, books, journals, and educational resources.
"Dr. Lessen Knoll agreed to be my advisor for my graduate work in July 2016. She sent PIOMI training materials and guided me through publication on the design and implementation of our RCT supervised by Dr. Farin Soleimani and Dr. Fariba Yadegari. She is currently collaborating with us on a meta-analyses on all PIOMI evidence across 17 RCTs. Dr. Knoll is excellent to work with and continues her consultation throughout your project."
