Oral-Motor Therapy

Up Apraxia Oral-Motor Therapy
 

bullet

Oral motor exercises are occasionally necessary for weak articulators or muscles in the mouth and face for speech production. They sometimes need strengthening, need to move farther and/or have better coordination. These can help a child make speech sounds better as well as help with the eating/feeding/swallowing problems some children have difficulty with.
