Oral Motor Therapy
Oral Motor tools offer children a socially acceptable way to get the deep pressure they crave. Kids with sensory processing disorders often require pressure and proprioception to regulate their nervous systems. This is also true for kids with oral motor disorders like Apraxia of Speech. Some kids also like the pressure on their teeth and face. These Oral Motor products should be included in a regimen of oral motor activities to promote oral motor abilities, to increase body awareness, and improve speech production. These chewy tubes and oral motor therapy tools also help improve lip closure and can increase muscle tone in the face, lips, and jaw. These tools are particularly important for children with Autism, Aspergers, Apraxia, Dyspraxia, Dysarthria, and Sensory Processing Disorder.
