Oral Motor and Muscular Therapy
Oral motor therapy is techniques used to exercise the muscles of the mouth. This will help with eating, drinking, speaking and other mouth activities. Oral motor therapy also increases coordination and stamina of the jaw, lips and tongue which will improve the clarity of speech. Our therapists also use touch cues techniques to guide the jaw, tongue and lips with producing sounds. These techniques improve oral muscular movements thus improving articulation.
