Welcome to the Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners

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 of 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.

The Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners (ATP) is also actively working to redress inaccuracies in the reporting and documenting of the effects of tongue-tie on babies especially with regard to both breast and bottle feeding. You can read these responses here, just follow the link.

The Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners does not provide training in tongue-tie division. However, we receive lots of enquiries about training so here are the answers to some frequently asked questions , such as, "Who can divide tongue-ties?" and "Where can I train to do tongue-tie division?"
