Free Community Workshop – Oral Motor Skills
Does your child drool? Pocket food in their cheeks? Put their hands in the mouth while eating? Does food fall out of thier mouth? Does your child have trouble biting or chewing…..or do they choke?
If you answer yes to these questions, your your family could benefit from learning more about these oral motor issues.
Oral motor therapy works on the oral skills necessary for proper speech and feeding development. These skills include: awareness, strength, coordination, move-ment, and endurance of the lips, cheeks, tongue, and jaw.
Learn more about the use and function of the muscles of the face and techniques to use at home for develop-ing biting and chewing skills, working on mouth closure and breath control, decreasing tongue thrust and drooling, and much more .
