Oral-Motor Therapy

Up Apraxia Oral-Motor Therapy


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.


Below are some sites on the web that provide information about and ideas for oral-motor therapy and home exercises.
