Activities that involve sensory stimulation to or actions of the lips, jaw and tongue.
Oral motor concerns occur when there is a problem in the areas of the brain responsible for speech. This makes it hard to coordinate the lips, tongue, and jaw to chew foods, swallow, and articulate sounds adequately. Oral defensiveness is an aversive response to touch sensations in and around the mouth that may cause extreme sensory, emotional, and behavioral responses when eating. Oral facial muscular weakness can co-occur with a variety of disorders such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, autism, sensory processing disorders, prematurity, and failure to thrive. A customized therapy-based program will be beneficial to assist the parent/caregiver to increase muscle strength, chewing, movement of tongue, jaw, and lips, intelligibility of speech and the reduction of drool. When followed at the recommended frequency, the individual will benefit, with an optimal achievement level of 100%.
